Overall ok place to work if you are in high school
Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 7 November 2018
Overall Angus Glen golf club as a place to work is a 5/10 It lacks good management Long and irregular hours High amount of labour is required Constantly under or over staffed No work/life balance Low pay
Management seriously needs to look at what they are doing as there is an extremely high turnover rate.
It's a good place to work if you are in high school in the surrounding area as you get to meet you friends while you work. Otherwise if you are travelling from far or need to advance your career then you should do so as quickly as possible.
Event Supervisor (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 5 October 2018
I've worked at AG since February 2018, beginning as a Banquet Captain and moving up to Event Supervisor at the beginning of May.
The busy season is an absolute grind, especially in June and September, but there's a welcoming and enjoyable workplace atmosphere that makes the hours go by more easily. Also, with how much work you're doing, you will learn so, so much in just a few months.
Only downside is the weirdness of the hours. Be prepared for absurdly early mornings and ungodly late nights when it's busy or for particular event types. Work-life balance is challenging in June and September, but it's otherwise manageable. Also, it's worth mentioning that there is very little work for mid-October to late November and between January and March.
Golf Course Maintenance (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 2 July 2018
The management is very focused on everyones safety and health. They are always lending a hand and train very well before letting you work on a machine you may not be comfortable with. Great co-workers and fun place to work. Plus you are outside working during the summer months which is always a plus if you enjoy the outdoors.
Customer Service, Banquet Captain (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 12 November 2017
Worked as a banquet server, worked weddings, company dinners and so many different events. Great learning experience, warm environment. Would definitely recommend this company not only to host events, but for employment.
Greet and assist guests (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 12 September 2017
This job has been a great experience for me and I am very grateful for being given the position. Working at Angus Glen has been fun and at the same time hard work, due to the high demand of work. For example we had to work a really big tournament for Shoppers Drug Mart and I have worked a 16 hour shift. Although there is sometimes high demand of work it is still a great place to work because of the people I work with and the overall work environment.
Sales Manager, Special Events and Weddings (Current Employee) – Markham, ON – 29 June 2017
Angus Glen is a great company to work for with an inclusive team environment.
I have learned how to run an event from sale, coordination, execution and accounting. It has given me the opportunity to gain confidence, strength and my ability to succeed in a sales management position,
Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 14 November 2016
Working at Angus Glen Golf Club was a pleasant experience. I was surrounded by great staff and it was a consistently fun work environment. The reason I no longer work there is because it was quite far from my house, and because of that as well as me not having my drivers license, the long and late hours were very difficult to maintain. If that would not be a problem, I highly recommend this job.
Free foods, surrounded by good people, friendly staff
Good amount of hours, however lack of breaks pr/hours.
Banquet Captain (Current Employee) – Angus Glen Club House – 10 August 2015
At AG you can be expected to work long hours on your feet without breaks. You do however get fed by the food left over events as well as "staff cafe" service. You can be expected to work for 8 hrs straight serving guests, clearing tables and setting buffets without break or reprieve. As a staff member you will receive benefits of use of the golf club and other staff discounts only at Angus Glen. However, there is a lack of communication between servers and directors as many claims and issues of safety and breaks are not maintain as mandated.
