You don't get paid what you're worth for a fast paced business. I am a very reliable & hard worker but they don't appreciate all I have done. Wouldn't recommend this place for anyone to work unless you're ok with minimum wage.
Over my year of working at golf Town, I learnt so much about golf clubs, the game of golf, and about sales. The friendly staff make everyday coming to work enjoyable, plus the perks on golf gear is unmatched!
My experience with the company is not the best , I started a year ago , but did not get a raise, the company basically pay well to the assistant managers and the managers . While all the work is on sales associate and cashier
A professional and efficient workplace with friendly employees. Amazing customer service and fast pace business. I worked in cash and was also a sales associate. Regular customers so you create bonds and work friendly relationships with each customer. The store has high expectations so visuals and customer service are key in this position. Overall a great experience so far!
i had some medical problems and my manager did get mad at me and told me to reconsider the job because i could not show up to certain shifts. i used to work 3-4 shifts and now i work one shift every two weeks
My experience at Golf Town was inherently mixed and bittersweet. I was with the company on and off from 2005 to late 2014 - a heady time indeed. I was there during the company's “Wild West” like, expansionistic heyday under its original founder and leadership team, when stores were opening across the country, vendor support was constant, customer needs came first (the costs be damned), and for all intents Golf Town was the golf store of record in Canada (1999-2010, roughly). Sadly, though, I was also there during a time of huge transformational shift, aimless cost-cutting that ultimately took the company's soul, best people, and viability, and spineless failures among senior leadership figures (2010-2014+). On the one hand, I had the privilege of working with some of the most motivated colleagues and managers I will ever meet. These were people who professionalized the retail sales role every minute that they were on the job - and our customers knew it. On the other hand, by the time I left the company had become dominated by a caricatured, penny-pitching retail approach imposed by the leadership of then-owner OMERS, by ruthless decision-making from company executives only looking to advance themselves, and instances of disturbingly inconsiderate and unprofessional behaviour by a few store-level managers allowed to run amok at their locations. Golf Town subsequently experienced even worse, after I left, as it ended up in partial bankruptcy proceedings by the late 2010s. I heard stories about some people I worked with - first-rate, deeply loyal employees and gifted teambuilders - plus...
loved working there, no complaints about staff or management, all around inviting environment. gained a lot of product knowledge. through the off season not much to do, just sat around doing almost nothing.
Good place to work as an avid golfer. Not much room for advancement. Work life and personal life are not easily interchangeable. Very strict guidelines which is good for some, not for others. The people you work with are generally very easy to get along with.
Fun place to work. Still waiting on them to distribute prizes to some of the contest winners. Seems they keep pushing the deadline back as a way to avoid actually having to pay out the prizes. All in all, worth applying to but don’t get your hopes up for any “rewards”.
I've learned a lot about the corporate industry being at Golf Town head office. The management was great to work for and is very supportive with their employees. I've worked there for over 7 years and have learn almost every position in the company, therefore making me quite knowledgeable with the retail industry.
I would do my own routine and go through a bunch of products' description to translate following with a review of what was happening online with promotions and offers. Sometimes, it would include some brainstorming regarding the ads coming up.
