7 Key Parts Of Working At A Country Club

Want to know the real ins and outs of working in a country club?

7 Key Parts Of Working At A Country Club

1. Members Get What They Want And They Are Always Right

The members can ask for anything they want and there is a 95% chance that they are going to get it because they run this place. If something is wrong with their food or drink, even if their food and drink are perfectly fine, you fix it, because they are always right.

2. Resetting For Events Is A Trip

Ok, but like, lugging the tables and chairs around the dining room is a struggle. Also, better get used to spending hours folding napkins for table settings.

3. You Learn About A Lot Of Different Alcohol

These members order so many different drinks and want some weird liquor brands, so now, I know all about the alcohol.

4. You Tell Your Life Story Over And Over Again

The members will want to know everything about you. How did you get your name? Where are you from? Do you go to school? What's your major? Do you have a boyfriend? Give them your life story and they just may be satisfied.

5. Every Day During "Season" Is A Blur

Between working and school and life, season will be the death of you. Long days of events and resetting and just a constant cycle of country club life.

6. You Create A Real Bond Between Your Coworkers

Since you spend so much time together in one place, you learn a lot about each other and become a small family. I can't tell you the amount of brotherly/sisterly bickering that happens on a day to day basis.

7. The Money Is Great!

The guaranteed 18% gratuity is a really great treat. I mean you can't go wrong with that! So even if you hate the job, which you shouldn't because it is great, the money makes it all worth it!

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
