    Pros

    Great atmosphere and stress on employee well-being.
    Corporate office visited several times annually to check the work environment with random employees.
    Promote-from-within philosophy

    Cons

    Typical fast food hours made for some spoiled weekends that I didn't want to be at work, but I think that is difficult to classify as a 'Con' for a high school job.

    I worked at Culver's part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Working at Culver's taught me how to be genuinely polite and courteous to customers as well as coworkers-a valuable skill I've brought into every job I've worked since. It was a fun environment. The team consisted of mostly high school and college-age students as well as a few full time adult employees. Management was great. I worked there in high school and it was a great job that I look back on fondly!

    Cons

    Raises were very small and it is the only place I have worked at so far that starts you at minimum wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More incentives.

    Great environment, Great Team, The core value of the culvers name is true and was something to believe in. Customer interaction

    Cons

    There wasn't much for cons that i can speak of. Everything in my position was great,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Since we were a pilot store we had the Craig stop in on occasion just to say hi. The way Culvers was ran (can't speak of it now during current times due to lack of experience) was great. Being part of the owner operator part was fantastic and taught me a lot.
