    I worked at ClubCorp part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The relationships that were built with fellow employees and members of the club were truly priceless. On top of those being able to use the club for personal events at a discounted rate. Even though I was not able to take advantage of this opportunity, it is truly an excellent opportunity.

    Cons

    Extremely late shifts. Most of the time after working a wedding I would not get off until 3-4am.

    Advice to Management

    Organization is key! I have had excellent managers and average managers. The difference was simple, setting clear goals and objectives to achieve the task.

    I worked at ClubCorp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic training, opportunity to move within company to beautiful locations, very supportive of salespeople.

    Cons

    None; this is truly a wonderful company. I know that my predecessor felt pressured to sell but that's what we are hired to do-sell. In sales, you reap what you sow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. I loved my job; I performed quite successfully because of the fantastic support from ClubCorp. My boss at the club was wonderful as was the VP of Sales for the company. I regret leaving every day. I had the chance to meet CEO Eric Affeldt in person while in training in Dallas (which was amazing) and he was intriguing-started out as a towel boy and worked his way up. I'll never forget his story.

    Pros

    Outstanding leadership - CEO / COO care about the staff and ensure Senior leaders are focused on growing business and growing people . Environment is focused on fun and building relationships and enriching lives. So it is really good for positive people who are self starters and willing to speak up

    Cons

    Big company so can't always move as fast as you'd like

    Advice to Management

    Keep focused on balancing needs of Employees, Members and Shareholders

    I worked at ClubCorp full-time

    Pros

    This was actually my first real job. I learned a lot about foods, wines, liquors & etiquette. Met some very interesting people, both Members & Employee Partners who will forever be family. An experience that I would not change for anything. A wonderful place to have worked. "You don't miss your water until your well runs dry". I loved this Club & all that went along with it.

    Cons

    Corporate greed. Dropping the initiation deposit was probably the worst change that the company did. It took the exclusiveness away from the Clubs. It was apparent to most Members that it was now about quantity & not quality as in affordability. Allow Club Managers to be more active in creating a realistic budget for their Club.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your people more by listening to their comments & following up with changes that are sensible
    and recognizing those that make cost saving ideas with bonuses.

    I worked at ClubCorp part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun outdoor environment combined with guest service that will teach a young person valuable life lessons. Tips are extremely motivating and teach young workers how to work as a team. The country club environment is a great place to work in and develop relationships for the future. I managed to work nearly full time and maintain my grades in school. I highly recommend this job.

    Cons

    No cons. A job is a job, it is what you make out of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!
