alright place
SERVER/BARTENDER (Current Employee) –  North York, ON4 October 2018
I used to love coming to work, it was a great place to work. until new management started last year. since then i have never seen more people getting fired and quit. everyone is getting paid the same however if youre a good worker they will suck the life out of you. youre expected to work so much and given nothing in return. benefits are ok, food is nasty downstairs, and people get fired over taking some food home from the left over buffet. also the amount of food waste in this place is absolutely ridiculous. weve been getting so many new people and no one is being trained which means more work for us, management seems disconnected. tey will ask us what needs improvement but nothing ever changes. still the same...

Great place to work
Bartender (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON7 November 2017
This was a great place to work the members and management are awesome. The workplace offers great meals everyday and excellent benefits.

a typical day is 8 hours but they have lots of hours to give out as there are so many staff and there are frequently sick calls.

The best part of this job is the people and the beautiful building.

Cook (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON19 September 2017
- Good compensation and benefits thanks to a decent union.
- 8-hour shifts, overtime pay for extra hours.
- Working culture is mostly positive.
- Perpetual under staffing, minimal training. Not always clear what your responsibilities are.
- Management will either be helpful or make your life a nightmare, depending on how much they like you.
- Mods like you've never seen.

Lead Counsellor (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON3 July 2017
Teach the kids how to learn a particular sport, responsible for watching them the entire shift. I learned how to keep the children entertained for a long time. The management is very good, they keep a very good relationship with their staff.

Executive Assistant to the CEO & GM (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON29 April 2017
High profile employer that provides a very enjoyable working experience; a lot of very nice people, friendly and smiling at all times. Situated in a beautiful uptown area. The requirement for excellence reflects in all areas of activity to preserve the prestige and tradition. Employees must maintain a professional appearance and a perfect demeanor at all times in relation to their both their peers and members. Privacy and confidentiality are mandatory. Some long hours are required. Decent pay and good benefits. Accessible by TTC, ideally one should drive to work; parking is free for all employees. There is a major concern for health and safety for employees and members alike at all times; everyone is accountable for safe work practices and the control of physical hazards in their areas. Training and orientation sessions are very well organized, thorough, informative and gratifying. All in all, a very desirable place to work in provided that one is a good fit to the culture.
Pros
complimentary meals, workout sessions during lunch hour

Thumbs Down in the kitchen too
Breakfast Cook (Former Employee) –  Stouffville, ON10 March 2017
Worked at the golf course 3 years ago. Typical hierarchical behavior . staff were unsupportive, and unfriendly. Chef yelled his face off and lost temper on a regular basis. Pay is low.. Not recommended for new students as this place may ruin what should be a positive experience for a first job, unless you've got thick skin. Yet they hire many students. 😫
Pros
Use Cooking skills
Cons
Grumpy staff, grumpy chef, typical hierarchical behavior
