    Pros

    Great people to work with, fun environment, and discounted food. It is a typical high school job, however I would not recommend it to anyone past high school unless you are looking at opening your own Culvers restaurant at some point.

    Cons

    The store manager and my location was a career fast food worker which made him very cranky. Although it was a fun place to work you never know what kind of mood you will get from the manager, one day he is more excited than a kid on Christmas and the next day hes terrible to be around.

    Advice to Management

    Work on management consistency across the board. The restaurant management team had inconsistent practices. It seemed to get better towards the end of my time though.

    The Culver family is fantastic though.

    Pros

    I was always getting raises, the owner was very generous and gave all the employees presents or money for holidays and anniversaries. pretty good hours, and they work well with a busy schedule.

    Cons

    Very strict on what you have to do, and sometimes not very nice about it. The training needs to be a little more extensive. They tend to just throw you in.

    Management was hard on employees at times because of a stressful work environment, but overall was not bad at all.

    Pros

    Very flexible! I worked there for about 5 years, and felt as comfortable at my end of days working at Culvers, as I did when I first started. Great group of people I have seen at the Culver's where I worked at. Whether you are working in the kitchen or up front taking orders, regardless everyone has to have a great personality to fit in.

    Cons

    Some people may view how fast you need to be at Culver's to be successful. Culver's is a very busy place, and requires fast reaction time; especially working in the kitchen.

    Pros

    It's a good place where you can bond with coworkers; lots of eagerness to work as a team. Easy-going atmosphere outside of rush hours; fun place to get to interact with many different kinds of people. You really get to be close friends with some of your crew managers and other crew members. You get a good amount of hours each week, and generally job tasks are very simple and easy to accomplish.

    Training went pretty smoothly and if you make a mistake while working, friendly coworkers willing to help you fix the mistake and let you improve without the worry of impending harsh judgement.

    - Strict but understandable dress code.

    Cons

    Overworked and not paid the deserved compensation, even at minimum wage. Many lazy coworkers that resulted in too much work being put on for driven workers. Too many moments where I had to take on 4 tasks at once to get jobs done and help customers while other employees reluctant to help out as they joked around in the back of the restaurant (general unprofessional-ism). High amounts of stress. If you are open and accepting about taking other people's hours that don't wish to work, or coming to work on day-offs when they call you in, upper management takes advantage of that entirely and works you until you're sore.

    Not much respect for employee mental health with lack of disciplinary for the workers that slack off.

    - No piercings.
    - No "unnatural"/"crazy" hair colors.
