    I worked at The Dominion Country Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    great golf course, nice members, stress-free job - perfect for college students

    Cons

    no credit card machine on carts, so you have to write down numbers and keep track of inventory manually

    Advice to Management

    investing in a credit card reader for the carts would be helpful for sales and customer privacy!

    I worked at The Dominion Country Club full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the people I worked with. I also loved driving the golf course in the Bev Cart, surrounded by an amazing landscape of nature and million dollar homes.

    Cons

    But the 17 hour shifts, the lack of equipment (none) provided for moving heavy banquet setups every shift, the uniform of black polyester slacks, matching jacket, and long sleeved shirt that we were required to wear inside and outside, regardless of the temperature; working every holiday, and most of all the lack of any type of raise, or bonus, after 2 1/2 years of full-time employment, just made it impossible to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Do whatever you have to do to ensure that all banquet staff gets the moving and storage equipment so desperately needed; regular (every 6 months) evaluations; raises every year with an additional bonus for long-timers. No matter what. Also, a sit down meeting with all the banquet servers before each service to review what is expected that shift is needed. Last but not least, get new uniforms that don't make the country club look cheap. :-)

    Pros

    Once you have been there for a 3 or 4 months, the members start to tip. When you leave, they give you a big tip if you are good at what you do.

    Cons

    When you start out, it's tough to get any sort of tip. Also, reset work can be a daunting task. Not all the staff pulls their weight equally.

    Advice to Management

    Management has probably changed since I left in 2010 but it would be simply be to hire more people to do reset, perhaps even a reset staff. Also, make sure that each employee is doing what they are responsible for. A bartender shouldn't have to hop out from behind the bar every night and wait tables so people have to wait for drinks. Like, I said, it could have changed, it's been a while since I worked there.

    Pros

    the connections from members / management that belong to the club
    the availability for promotion
    the flexible hours
    most all of management is competent and understands what is happening

    Cons

    The only downside of a private country club is some of the members. A few expect a 5 star restaurant / facility and have no problem complaining until they drop. Many servers have been brought to tears by a few select members.

    Advice to Management

    Management: watch out for the bad members. You know who they are, we know who they are. Protect the servers when you can. Most days are good but some days are just bad.
