Company reviews
"Job of a Lifetime"
Former EmployeeManager
I absolutely LOVE this place. The people were amazing to work with, and all were always willing to help if you had a need they could assist with. No game players here, everyone got along great, and worked very, very hard. Management was amazing as well. I was constantly challenged and learned an incredible amount while working here. I really stepped outside my box and it was awesome. Some days I feel like my day was 3 minutes long and I'd look back and think "what did I do today" as the day went so fast. Job of a lifetime in staff, management, salary!!

"Overall good company"
Current EmployeeGeneral Manager
Overall company is a good company to work for. Hours at golf courses are stressful and can take a toll on you. Upper management is hands on and willing to help in any way needed. If you are doing your job well you are left alone and not bothered by upper management.

"Temped there for 4 months"
Former EmployeeAssistant Controller
I had the pleasure to work at MCRA in the past. This company truly invested in my training although I was there to temp. That was impressive. Also, the people are nice and would answer any questions you have. Another plus, health benefits kicked in right away.

"clients were amazing"
Former EmployeeSupervisor
The clients made the job worth while and that is why I stayed as long as I did. always something to do. shifts go by fast. co-workers were mostly nice.
