    I have been working at Tcr, Tennis Club of Riverdale

    Pros

    TCR is one of the premier health clubs in NY, and the fact that it's family run is one of the things that makes it so special, contrary to previous reviews I've seen here. The family that owns this club is one that is very proud of, and dedicated to, the success of the club and the contentment of its employees. In all honesty, I have never worked in a corporate environment in which the owner went so far out of their way to ensure the happiness of their employees. Any discontentment I have seen usually comes from employees who have never worked anywhere else and just don't know how good they have it. Coming from a marketing background, I know how blood thirsty some companies can be, and TCR is far from that. Upper management takes a great interest in their employees, and hard work is rewarded. The family running this club does expect that staff, whether family or not, share in the pride and committment to success that is the company's evolving corporate culture - and that's exactly what they should do. While at times some might say there could be more training offered, there is never anyone in Upper Management who won't make time to answer a question or provide some support.

    Cons

    People need to keep in mind that this is a service-based industry. Therefore, the Club cannot afford to invest in employees who don't want to make the committment to the clientele that is necessary for the success of the establishment. Those who are unwilling to whole-heartedly do the jobs for which they are hired are weeded out fairly quickly, although some not quickly enough. If Upper Management is guilty of anything, it's granting the benefit of the doubt too often to those who are undeserving. The only other real negative to working here is that parking is hard to come by in the neighborhood. But that's a small price to pay to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All I would say to Upper Management is to continue its committment to excellence, and perfecting the corporate culture. As long as the staff is happy, the members will be happy and vice versa. This is a great place to be.

    Pros

    Beautiful Facility.
    If you are looking for a short term P/T job this is the place for you.

    Cons

    This business is ran by a family which leaves no room to grow and nothing is ever fair. You will never be regonized for your hard work, employees work 10hour days with very little pay. Management fails to guide his employees. There is no team unity, no communication between staff and training process.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to have better communication with staff. Create a training protocol for all employees to become knowledgeable in all departments of your club. What goes for the employee should also go for family members. Your Family members should be setting the example!

    Pros

    There were flexible hours. Direct supervisor was good at listening for corcerns. Other employess were friendlt for the most sometimes.

    Cons

    The upper management was very incompontet. Unncessary work was put on some employees shoulders. Management would'n't work with you and your situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take better care of your employees. Make sure people are working and not justs tattle telliing on other employees and not doing any real work.
