    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Greenbrier Sporting Club full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Strong leadership team with opportunities for career advancement and personal growth. The culture is positive, and focused on excellence. Upper management is willing to provide honest feedback and career guidance. Great resume builder!

    Cons

    The hospitality industry is often cyclical, and it is no different here. There are more opportunities during the summer months than during the winter. If you can take advantage of a seasonal position or culinary / hospitality internship, don't let the short term commitment scare you. It's worth the temporary employment. (And pro: The company does fill full-time positions with prior interns.)

    Yes, you'll be working a lot of hours during the busy season. But you'll also have time to rest or move on, depending on your circumstances, when the slow season comes.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate wisely to give your teams opportunities for growth and to lighten your load. Some managers are naturally better teachers. Culinary students, identify those managers to take full advantage of your internship.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Greenbrier Sporting Club full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed my co-workers and the club members are very generous. Grounds and restaurants are beautiful.

    Cons

    Incompetent food and beverage direction. Sycophants unite! An external audit needs to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Advice to owner--clean house and revamp.

    Most of the members were pleasant.

    It's an elitist environment. Tons of inappropriate commentary.

    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Greenbrier Sporting Club full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You have one assignment in the morning, and one in the afternoon. Once you have finished those, the day is over.

    Cons

    You're outside all day, from 6:30am to 3:30pm.

    Advice to Management

    Have some incentives for employees to take pride in their work.
