    Pros

    Great place to work. I'm lucky to work with a lot of great people. You get to work in a team environment that, in my experience, has been great.

    Cons

    There are times when the job can be high stress. During busy hours there can be a lot of multitasking that can get pretty hectic.

    Pros

    Great Managers and owner to work with! Culvers provides a flexible schedule and promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    No cons that I can think of! All of staff is friendly and accepting of new employees.

    Advice to Management

    The only suggestion I have is to encourage their new employees to strive to be promoted more often

    Pros

    Great job to start out with as a high school student. They supply you with skills that can set up the foundation to have great customer service skills. Which almost every job needs.

    Cons

    Worked there for two years and was never once given a review or a raise. Only offered me a raise when I submitted my two weeks notice.


  7. Good first job

    Pros

    1/2 of food during break, nice coworkers, management are very lenient if you make a mistake

    Cons

    Working late nights, and I hate closing

    Advice to Management

    When I make a little mistake like forgetting to counter custard it is not the end of the world. They are very nice about it! I am 16 and that means I can work till close. So almost every shift I close and I hate it! All my fellow workers are so nice and welcoming. I love it there! Another thing I don't like is if you are new and say it is scooper night they will have you in the dining room. Newbies can and will work most of their shifts in the dining room unless you are very good at what you do right away. I love working at culvers and I hope to work at culvers until I get through college.

    Pros

    Discounted food, good organization and planning skills, very clean, fresh food. Overall a good working environment and comfortable eating place.

    Cons

    I personally did not have very many cons to this job. Just the hours were extremely unpredictable and sometimes they were not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep hours at a steady pace, but besides that, continue the system that you already have. Great job!

    Pros

    Unlimited samples, okay co-workers, discounts are decent (but strict).

    Cons

    Managers expect a lot, management played favorites, store is expensive even with discounts, long hours on feet, fast-paced & stressful for continuous hours.. ALSO closes are horrible & are never consistent.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure every employee is doing their part. I always see someone just being lazy & everyone is having to pick up their slack..
