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

    Pros

    Good management after previous superintendent was replaced. Reasonable work schedule 12 days with 40 hrs each week; however, if you are really reliable tread carefully because you could get pulled for a lot of overtime which is good unless you have many responsibilities in your life. There were plenty of amazing sunrises I got to catch though since work usually started at 0445 - 1400. (4:45AM-2PM)

    Cons

    Being the only reliable person you can get pulled for a lot of overtime including extra days of work. I pulled a month and a week straight of working without a break which was just the two days I normally have off every twelve days. During that time I was easily pulling about 60+ hr work weeks

    I worked at Oki Golf part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with diverse people, wide variety of responsibilities and discounted golf. They offer flexible hours to work around my schedule.

    Cons

    Trying to please difficult customers. We wouldn't always get the normal 40 hour work week. Closing hours were dependent on amount of play.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I worked at Oki Golf part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Interacting with the loyal "regulars" who love to golf the property. Greeting customers who are happy to be there to play a round, contributing to their positive golf experience.

    Cons

    The corporate office, as small as it is, practices a philosophy of distance between themselves and their properties / employees. Support for long-term employees is viewed as a financial liability, so longevity is not encouraged. Tyranical management style that believes in summary punishments without vetting situations, circumstances, but does believe in embellishments, fabrications.

    Advice to Management

    Try interacting with the various properties more than once a year, and not to just eat lunch at the clubhouse. Believe in the catch phrases you put forth to your employees to empower their success. A bit of introspection: is there a wonder why there's such large turnover within the small building where you work? The CEO & COO don't even golf, how could you understand the operations behind running a golf course?
