Head Golf Professional (Former Employee) – Edelstein, IL – December 14, 2015
I gained tremendous experience in being an entrepreneur as the owner of the golf merchandise in the golf shop. I gained real world experience in marketing and selling. The toughest part of the job was managing the multiple personalities of the membership. I feel I achieved success by listening to all comments and concerns and addressed each problem as objectively as possible. The most enjoyable part was working within the gold industry.

Employee (Former Employee) – Somewhere – March 14, 2015
They are getting rid of people left and right, with really no reason at all. My co-workers were wonderful and so were the members. But management is awful. The board needs to take a hard look at the inside.
Lifeguard (Former Employee) – Edelstein, IL – February 15, 2015
My job's included opening/closing the pool, cleaning, checking the chemical levels of the water, watching over patrons, and handling money. This job gave me a better sense of responsibility, because people's lives were at stake. I was also able to develop customer service skills while dealing with unruly patrons. I always got along with my coworker's and made some very good friends. My one gripe I have with this job, is that it was very poorly managed, and I would often not know my schedule until the day of.

Banquet Server (Former Employee) – Rapid City, SD – January 5, 2013
A lot of work involved, depending on the day the pay was worth it. Sometimes it was too much work for too little reward. But with the larger events, and when not over staffed, you were able to make a good chunk of change.
