    Pros

    Great employees and fun working environment (because of the employees). They work with you if you need time off for personal and family reasons.

    Cons

    The VP's can care less about their employees. They will act like they care and make promises (and speeches) but there is no follow through. Great starter job and some perks but do not get your hopes up if you want to move up in title or make livable money. You are easily replaceable and will be reminded of that if you plead your case on why you may deserve more money.

    Advice to Management

    "People, process and product" - Marcus Lemonis (multi millionaire entrepreneur).
    Notice the order of operation of this saying, "People" is first and "process" is second. Both is what this company lacks. Improve this, the company will be a true success.

    I worked at Hampton Golf full-time

    Pros

    Nice designed course, discount on food, there are some good people to work with

    Cons

    Not provided tools to do your job, no communication from upper management, very tight with money, need to provide more workers to get the job done

    Advice to Management

    Don't be so secretive with everything. When things change, communicate what is happening. Take care of your properties, it is amazing what preventative maintenance will do for equipment. Take care of your employees and put money into your properties and you will be amazed at what can be done and the pride everyone will take in where they work.

    I have been working at Hampton Golf full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Beautiful club , with amazing coworkers. Of course the free golf is a bonus.

    Cons

    I wish upper management would appreciate the management and coworkers. Very sad that they never say Good job, only speak about negative stuff, or will speak to you if you are a young good looking girl. Yes, you the area manager and VP. You have great people, apeciate them.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management as in Corporate Management needs to be respectful to their club employees. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the bottom line , which will makes the owners happy. In other words, focus on making your employees happy.

    I have been working at Hampton Golf full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great golf course. Free Golf. Working in an environment that is not the same every day. Having a job

    Cons

    Low pay. No sense of urgency from corporate to fix problems to help improve work effectively.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying so much about the bottom line. Pay Your Employees A Good Wage And Give THEM The tools to take care of the customer. If you have happy employees that feel you care about them, your financial success will come. Also a note to the corporate office, when you vist a club, introduce yourself to everyone. When you don't, it makes the employees that you come in contact with feel like you feel that you are too good for them. Stop with the attitude.

    Also dump the IBS that system is so far behind. Your restaurants deserve a more efficient POS.

    Thank you for reading.

    I worked at Hampton Golf full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Golf Club Restaurants usually have decent food. Resorts are scenic places to work. Plenty of pretty young girls to work with, if thats important to you (certainly the management seems to like it).

    Cons

    Employer steals wages in the form of tips. Will hire experienced servers that are male to work the front of house, then tell them that only women are wanted out there and demote them to dishwashing. Prefers to pay you out of petty cash. Misses paychecks. Ignores your W-4 forms. No reasonable explanation. Will calculate taxes out of the petty cash check and not allocate them towards your tax payments. Irregular work hours - may demand you work until close saturday night and open first thing sunday morning, leaving you exhausted and under rested. Management is incapable of working along with the employees, but perfectly capable of reprimanding and scolding people when the work load is high and they should instead be helping.

    Advice to Management

    Quit screwing your employees just because you can. Recognize what you are doing is illegal. Most of you don't need any additional money, so why do you steal it from your lowest paid employees? Learn how to work the positions so you can help the workers when work loads are high and staff is pressured. Stop discrimination based on sex. Pay people on time and what they are due. You are hurting people.

    Pros

    All of the pros I can state are if self discovery. My discoveries were a result of changing professions

    Cons

    Senior management was too far removed from the actual daily functions of the individual worksites. Poor budget allocations, poor conditions behind the scenes not allowing for proper work completion.

    Advice to Management

    Disclose all conditions of employment at the time of hiring

    I have been working at Hampton Golf (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice people, good starting point to find opportunities elsewhere in the golf industry, free golf at many clubs.

    Cons

    Low pay, almost non-existent benefits, high turnover, limited chance for advancement. Shoe string budgets, ancient technology.

    Advice to Management

    Know who works for you and care about your staff. Don't visit the properties in your very expensive sports cars when your entire staff is living paycheck to paycheck. Everyone can see how you splash out at conferences etc. but do not compensate employees for bringing in new customers or up-selling.

    Pros

    It was a paying job.

    Cons

    There is a right way and a wrong way to run a business, upper management consistently demonstrated the latter.
