Miserable place to work
Food and Beverage Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Ontario15 July 2019
The Food and Beverage manager is a hateful woman that has her select favorites and will not teach you or show you anything unless you're one of her select favorites. If you're a man good luck, she hates men. The servers are jerks, rude and entitled due to unions. It's full of miserable people I urge everyone not to work here.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Too many to list

very busy, beautiful place to work
Chalet Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Burlington, Ontario24 March 2015
My day usually started at 6am, and progressed to a very busy schedule, handling golfing events, special functions, weddings, promotions, etc. Scheduling of staff, invoicing, balancing end of day for all members. Re-ordering for next day according to events scheduling. Set up for next day for afternoon and evening staff.

Definitely learned time management, first point of contact for all members of the club, handling requests on a daily basis, and the hardest part was dealing with complaints to the members satisfaction. Feeling in a large part the satisfaction of knowing my job was well done and accomplished.

The most enjoyable part of my job was of course the people I worked with on a daily basis, the members of the club, and I had the most incredible view anyone could wish for!
Pros
Very busy schedule, members and staff were fun
Cons
crazy days, meant tired feet

A great job with a fun crew and a serious work environment
Greens Keeper #1 (Current Employee) –  Burlington, ON28 April 2013
Typical day at work involved an early morning head start at preparing the golf course for play that day, staying out of the members way for the most part and just respecting the golf atmosphere which would include being aware of your surroundings while you're operating loud machines and driving carts around the course.

Management at this job was very good and fun to work with. Good leadership skills between the management crew that led to establishing a great crew of co-workers.

Hardest part of this job would have to be working 12 days on and only having every other weekend off for my own time..

Most enjoyable part of this job would definitely be the environment that our crew creates every year between each other, it's very social and can be serious when needed.
Pros
Free Golf after 5pm
Cons
Lots of overtime, no real time for personal life.
