The overall culture at Clublink is a negative one. As someone who played a key role in the day to day operations, retail/inventory, and outside services, I was severely undervalued.The pay structure doesn't make sense for people trying to get into the industry, or even those with industry experience. With the amount of hours I worked weekly as a salaried employee, I made just over $14 an hour. When I told my manager about this, his response was "That's just the industry". Just to put it into perspective, IF I worked year round, I would only take home $36,000 BEFORE TAX. For myself, this is nowhere near proper compensation for how much time, and responsibility I was given. I was given extremely minimal training on my day to day responsibilities, and was expected to be able to perform them immediately. I thought there would be a light at the end of the tunnel, which is why I persevered for several years at the club level, but there isn't.
The only good thing about my time at ClubLink is the people I met there. Most of the members at my club were extremely friendly, and some remain my friends to this day. The same can be said for some of the people I worked with.
