Amazing Work Place

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Anyone who has a desire and tough skin to learn and grow in food production, I would hardly recommend working at the RCYC. Extremely knowledgable and approachable Executive Chef, talented Sous Chefs, and a great team. Expect hard work, stressful situations, and occasional yelling. But it's pretty normal in any kitchen.

F&B Dept

The management made this place a great place to work and cared about the welfare of their employees. The summer is the busiest season of 5month with very long hours but the offseason is incredibly slow with the exception of December.

Stressful, poorly managed, and overly political work environment.

The management is a joke, its more common of the members to be rude, work/life balance was nonexistent (15 days work with 1 day off?). But you learn how to deal with difficult clients pretty quickly, and how to keep your cool and disassociate from your personality in the face of disrespectful club members. Due to this, I would vouch for the RCYC to be an excellent place to learn how to serve in an extremely stressful environment.

Great place to work if you need money and are willing to work insane hours during the summer.

Great place to work if you need money, but must be willing to work sometimes insane shifts and hours (especially if you're in banquets). Great place to meet people and new friends, everyone is super friendly. On your feet a lot, so must be physically capable. Hardest part of the job are the hours and how much it physically takes a toll on you. Excellent summer job.

Pros

Staff meals are ok, supervisors and managers are super nice and approachable, very flexible hours

Cons

long hours, physically demanding

Positive place to work with a very professional management

All the servers, busboys are mostly there for one season only. It would be better if the Club provided with an opportunity for such personnel to work full-time with an opportunity to grow within the organization. That would allow good and hard-working people to stay for a much longer period with the organization. Overall, management is very professional, nice and polite. The workplace culture changes from year to year because 90% of people are always new.

Pros

Work on the island, fresh air

Cons

Snobby members

Stiffled atmosphere

Really stuffy persona everyone has. They try to have inclusion but it seems like just for show. They try to create employee rograms but don't really try to reach employee perspective.

Pros

some employee perks

Cons

stuffy atmosphere
