joke of an operation
Outside Services (Current Employee) –  Winter Park, FLOctober 12, 2017
The "boss" does not have any PGA certifications. They work you like a dog for only 9.75 an hour and the tips suck. The management is the biggest joke, they expect outside services to do everything while they pocket all the cash from tournaments and sit inside watching the golf channel. STAY AWAY

Server/Bartender (Current Employee) –  Edina, MNAugust 10, 2017
Interlachen Country Club is in a breed of it's own. Waiting on members that create an idealistic atmosphere is a huge motivating factor. Having the pleasure to serve our members keeps me coming back.
Pros
Being surrounded by the elite

Great Golf Course
Assistant Food & Beverage Manager (Current Employee) –  Edina, MNJuly 18, 2017
The management has had some serious turnover and it isn't clear on which direction the club is going and that is extremely frustrating to management. Great golf course...that is all

Good work environment - Professional
Swim Team Head Coach (Current Employee) –  Edina, MNJuly 17, 2017
Interlachen is a prestigious club that expects the utmost professionalism from its employees. A strong work ethic is required to maintain and advance through their ranks. As a swim coach, the club leaves all responsibility to the coaching staff. It is on us to handle everything swim team. From parent communication, hiring of assistants, planning, space and time allocation, equipment and apparel ordering, and all that comes running a team.
The workplace culture of Interlachen is team orientated. At the pool, it is very friendly. It is a member first environment and we do our best to make sure they are well taken care of.
The hardest part of my job is the same as the most enjoyable. Running the swim team is a full time job and requires much work at and away from the pool.
Pros
Meals are provided. Great kids and parents to work with.
Cons
Inconstant employees

Almost Zero Training

Jump right in, almost zero training. Long, grueling hours with very high expectations. Golf course standards very high, perfection is a must, private course entitlement felt strongly.
Pros
Decent management
Cons
Grueling work, not worth pay, rude people

Outside Services Intern (Former Employee) –  Minneapolis, MNMay 3, 2017
Absolutely loved my time at Interlachen Country Club. I was made to feel so welcome by employees and members. We would work six days a week but it wasn't a problem because it was great fun. I worked in the bag room as well as in the golf shop. I had to leave to return to university but would love to go back!
Pros
Free lunch and free golf
Cons
Long hours

Lifeguard (Former Employee) –  Edina, MNMarch 9, 2017
Working as a lifeguard at Interlachen Country Club for three full summers was extremely rewarding yet far too demanding at times. At the country club, it seemed as if the divisions of labor worked as individuals and not united. The lifeguards were at the bottom of the food chain and would not be treated as equally as the poolside wait staff. The poolside wait staff were not treated as equally as the inside clubhouse wait staff. So on and so forth to upper management. Each division of labor was operating on its own and not collaborating with one another which caused some serious gaps in communication, customer service, employee service, and much more. Entitlement was too much of a luxury for some workers, as they would use their power inappropriately to demonstrate their superiority.
Pros
Free food
Cons
Short Breaks, Imbalance of power

Very difficult place to work...
Banquets (Former Employee) –  Winter Park FloridaJuly 28, 2016
Senior Leadership Team, ( Club House Manager, Banquet Director and Chef) were always complaining about the members and lacked focus on the in house team..All 3 made it clear, that they did not care about anyone but themselves. If you enjoy working in a drama filled environment with a lot of self centered attitude from Senior Leadership you will fit right in.. I found myself to be better than that and got out, and could not be happier that I did so...

Regarding the in house staff all are very young and most are attending school, all were very pleasent and polite, however once there just a short time most got in and out quickly, as it did not take them long to realize that they were clearly being taken advantage of most did not stay longer than 6 months to a year...

If you decide to work here I wish you all the best, but do not say that you were not warned
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Employee Meal, barely edible, no support from Senior Leadership, poor pay

It was a great experience to be able to make so many connections and to be around the great game of golf with them. The tournaments were a great thing to be apart of and the caddies treated each other like family.

Chef (Former Employee) –  Winter Park, FLMarch 28, 2016
Working at Interlachen Country Club was a great experience. The work itself never seemed to be too difficult since there was a high morale and work ethic among the employees. I attribute the above average morale and work ethic to good training, above average job knowledge along with management that always treated the employees with respect and appreciation.
Pros
Free Daily Family Meal, good leaders/managers
Cons
None

Line Cook, Winter Park (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 26, 2015
Loved working for the company. co-workers and management were not so great (some). Management hired people they knew and put people that had worked there on the back burner. was there for almost two years with out a raise. low employee moral.
I did learn a lot about food. wasnt looking promising for me to move up in company per not training in multiple areas. company did feed you even though it wasnt always the best food. good insurance good benefits good employee parties
