    Long hours not so bad but the "politics" are ridiculous.

    I worked at River Oaks Country Club full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Gives great experience, especially if your trying to build a base for a career in country clubs. You can learn a lot but only if your willing and motivated

    Cons

    In banquets they either work you to death or short you on hours, it's a total mind-game. The departments don't follow he same standards. There's NO TRAINING your just thrown on the floor and you ave to pretty much find your way by asking others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your banquet staff, service staff in general.

    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at River Oaks Country Club

    Pros

    Laid back work environment with 50% of my time spent on break.
    Free food.
    Lots of networking opportunities

    Cons

    Hot! Houston summers can be very hot and the outdoors nature of the job mean no A/C.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good Job Guys!
