    Pros

    The restaurant segment in general is up right now, and labor everywhere is difficult to source. Therefore, things are a little stressful everywhere. The pro's, you ask? I'm working with a team that's been trained to work together to solve problems, and to see solutions instead of wallowing in neutral. The guests that come in are fantastic for the most part, and as with any customer service job, there are going to be those situations where people appreciate you less. The owners are involved and appreciative, they make sure to keep a pulse on how their team is feeling about their jobs. The focus on quality remains strong, and they set challenging goals within reason.

    Cons

    The con's for me are just part of the regular cycle of running a business and employing a younger team. As leaders of a restaurant, we're forming the labor force of tomorrow. It can be challenging to find just the right way to push someone to make them better while maintaining mutual respect and balance the subtleties and complexities of running a business.

    Advice to Management

    Look for every chance you can to educate your leadership team. This type of work will never be "easy," and no one gets anywhere if you were to try to sell it that way. Provide tools, but don't leave the training wheels on for too long. Always coach respectful authority.

    Pros

    Culver's was a great place to work. I was promoted quickly and the schedule was flexible enough to accommodate my college schedule. The family that owned and operated the Culver's I worked for was wonderful.

    Cons

    Pay was not equal across the board. Two individuals who held the same title, worked equally as hard, and had the same amount of seniority were paid different salaries.

    Advice to Management

    Try as hard to even out the pay scale as you do trying to keep it quiet.
