    I have been working at Interlachen Country Club part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Abundance of food, laid back atmosphere, flexible
    Scheduling, good experience in fine dining/upscale service, prepare you with clothing for job.

    Cons

    -Unorganized management: many times end up doing twice the work because of laziness, lack of instructions going into the shift, priorities get mixed.
    -Raises very minimal, they do not have any employee reviews at all, also no tips, so you make much less than an actual restaurant no matter which position you have (Bussers make as much as bartenders)
    -Lack of control from management; problematic people/attitudes and situations are handled poorly. May be addressed but there is no repercussion. May stem from unorganization (it becomes a cycle here).
    -Very lone wolf environment, others do not help others unless told by management or it's their table (management does not encourage teamwork). You might have one person doing rigorous 45 minute task while others leave or just watch you.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage teamwork, have employee reviews, reward positive behavior and ask questions about how to improve. Keep tasks organized, stop making workers do twice the amount of work because of your misinformation. No letting problematic attitudes cultivate. Look up and ask about how restaurants run to get an idea of successful managing.

    Tip Pool is nice. Real Pool is nice. Mondays are open for employee golf.

    Just shut your mouth and get in line. Lemmings with a Smile.

    There is always room for improvement.

    It is a great place to work in the summers, many benefits, easy job, nice to be outside.

    I have been working at Interlachen Country Club full-time

    Pros

    Pay is above average.
    Management is very cooperative and uplifting.
    Easy to move up if you work hard.
    Membership is generally very friendly.
    Free employee meal served twice daily.
    Coworkers feel like family.

    Cons

    Tip free environment even if a member wants to write a tip on the receipt you will not get it.
    Members are allowed to stay as long as they want after closing hours and staff must continue to serve them.
    Must work all holidays or blackout dates with no exception.

    Advice to Management

    If a member chooses to write in a tip amount on the ticket then the server should be allowed to redeem the amount.

  8. "Good high school job"

    Pros

    The managers are chill. Theyou are flexible with time off.

    Cons

    The hours suck. The pay could be better.

    Advice to Management

    The grounds crew should have first dibs on employee golf days. They are the reason the golf course is so nice, so they should have the right to play on it.

    I worked at Interlachen Country Club part-time

    Pros

    The overall environment is more professional than other country clubs; however, the pay remains the same as most Minnesota country clubs, if not less, mysteriously. As a part-time job, it was engaging, since they teach you many ways to be a better banquet server, and it was convenient, since you can work one or two days a week (if that's all you want).

    Cons

    First of all, "the professional nature" of the work environment can seem quite the illusion, on certain shifts, because as much as the management may boast of quality service, they hire many people who tend to be irascible and petulant, as if children, and even if you mention their objectionable behavior to the boss, such people themselves will not alter their behavior (since they've been working there for half-a-decade!). Second, the pay is truly poor (exclusive of tips, it is $6.00 an hour!), and once again, that is in spite of their claims of high quality service. Third, although the job can seem convenient as a part-time job, it ultimately turns out to not be so, once you've worked there for several months; indeed the longer you work there, the more you shall realize that you end up doing clean-up or set-up work a long time after events are over or before they've begun, meaning: you are doing heavy-labor or tedious labor for $6.00 an hour, which is unforgivable! I could go on, seriously, but I'll leave you with those three cons.

    Advice to Management

    First, stop touting your "high quality service, your excellent service, your best country club service in Minnesota," and instead start monitoring the individual behavior of your employees -- so that you have an accurate understanding of your service. Second, stop putting eight to twelve banquet servers on one shift, only so you can collectively tip them less, while paying them a below-minimum-wage hourly wage. Third, be more aware of the petulancy and vulgarity and general lack of discipline among your employees, and by doing so, seek to reduce and eventually eliminate it (which won't happen, trust me); after all, how enthusiastic can an employee possible remain when he arrives to work to find an obese, hung-over, and grouchily inarticulate young-adult complaining about wanting to take a smoke break, an hour into the shift? Answer: marginally enthusiastic.
