The Cliffs Living
Concierge/Front Desk (Current Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SCApril 19, 2018
The Cliffs offers a positive, professional work environment. Having experience working at other private clubs and in hospitality, The Cliffs standards were a match for me. As a current concierge I enjoy working with my staff & assisting our membership, feeling accepted and supported. Employees are encouraged daily and their strengths are noticed for promotional positions. Like most hospitality position, hours and scheduling vary. The amenities and employee care are exceptional to most hospitality positions elsewhere. The location and properties are beautiful and accessible. The overall family centric values and management structure exceeds other work environments.

Worst management ever
Server (Former Employee) –  Marietta, SCApril 2, 2018
Everyone talks bad about eachother, it was the most petty and dramatic work environment I have ever been in. I made okay money but it was not worth the stress, the management is constantly in and out and servers are made to feel like they can do nothing right.
Pros
Good food
Cons
Horrible supervisors/management

CART ATTENDANT (Former Employee) –  Marietta, SCApril 1, 2018
Enjoyable workplace, co-workers, etc. Did a lot more work than my pay showed. Relaxing atmosphere for the most part. Free golf was nice. Had to know when to drop the hammer and work, though.

Food and Beverage Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SC 29690November 18, 2017
The Cliffs, though a great location to start a career, will more than likely consume your life once in a supervisor role or higher. The pay is wonderful and so are the benefits/ amenities. The members of the club you work for, if there long enough, will change from intimidating to a family.. they will take care of you as if you are family.
Pros
Benefits and Amenities
Cons
Life Consuming

Awesome
Gourmet Market Associate Cliffs (Former Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SCOctober 17, 2017
This is probably one of the coolest places to work!
Yes, it will require you to be on the top of your customer service game but you will learn and grow so much in a lot of areas and meet some of the kindest caring management and co workers. A gem!

Great Hospitality Company
Clubhouse Manager (Former Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SCJuly 21, 2017
Enjoyed working here, but for a very short time. The hours required to work and the location of the properties are big negatives because of the distance you need to travel to work. But the service level is top notch and so are the facilities. A place you can be proud to work at.

Wholly dishonest and manipulative.
Manager (Former Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SCJune 24, 2017
Corporate management creates the most dysfunctional and toxic environment I have ever worked in. Serious issues with basic honesty and credibility. Local management is consistently undermined and replaced so corporate can save face to the membership. Massive turnover in middle management as a result. Any disagreement is treated as insubordination. Staff are discouraged from taking grievances to HR. HR is not particularly helpful since most of the problems begin at levels above HR. Managers are shifted around between clubs with little or no notice. Anyone outside of corporate can expect very little in the way of basic courtesy, decency or transparency. Hours in theory shouldn't be too bad but the revolving door of management and hourly staff leads to long hours.
Pros
Good pay.
Cons
Highly toxic culture and work environment

Fun enviornment, but slow during off season
Sous Chef/Executive Chef (Former Employee) –  Sunset, SCApril 11, 2017
While the summer months are busy and overtime is pretty much a standard, the winter months I was lucky to get 30 hours a week. This was a major part of my decision to leave.

Good pay, decent managers, supportive HR/Payroll system, pleasant coworkers, not too heavy of a work load, flexible hours. Nice getting to see the same members everyday vs. working with the public which is always different.

sell your soul!
kitchen staff (Former Employee) –  GlassyJune 13, 2015
If you have no life and only want to work than this place is for you! Management at club level is chaotic at best and only cares about themselves. Corporate is a joke....constantly changing policy, and they never have a clear and decisive direction. They say one thing to your face and do a completely different thing behind your back. They don't support their employees and treat lower level employees like minions. Horrible place to work!
Pros
money was good
Cons
to much to list

past associate (Former Employee) –  asheville/ardenApril 16, 2014
Be ready to sell your soul to the company.The club in Asheville is a great place. Most of the managers are ok, its CORP that stinks and will stab you in the back. If your OK with that, you will make good money if you can work and go home and don' take any bagage with you.
Pros
will make good money
Cons
lots of hours

Great place to work in early years.
Cash & Banking Manager (Former Employee) –  Travelers Rest, SCFebruary 24, 2014
I loved working at The Cliffs the early years. Once the company started growing the more higher management was hired.

Management then made the company harder to work for.

I had to drive one hour each way to work. This was hard especially with a young child. Did not get to see much of her.

Co-workers were great.

I did learn a lot working here. I started as a fixed asset accountant. Was involved in two software conversions. Before leaving I was a manager.
Pros
Co-workers were like family, company provided lunch each day.
Cons
Drive was too long, did not get bonus

Food and Beverage Manager (Former Employee) –  Salem, SCApril 9, 2012
The CEO stretched the company's resources too thin by overdeveloping the properties. He bought more land and built more homes then he could sell.
