    I have been working at Culver's part-time (more than 3 years)

    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.

    Webb City Culver's is a decent company for which to work, but there are issues about which you should be aware.

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

    Pros

    The franchisee (Jered) is a great owner. He is a genuine guy, and he cares about his employees. A few managers were good as well.

    Cons

    My particular location had a few people in management that had no business being there. They were overly critical of employees and just plain jerks at some points. Employees would always roll their eyes or scoff at them when they were not around. A few times, they humiliated employees publicly with no regards to the consequences of doing this. The wage was too low considering the poor management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do 360 degree reviews so you can find out which managers are good from everyone's perspective and which managers act differently when the owners are around. A few managers need to be cut quickly, for they are causing most of the employee turnover.

    I have been working at Culver's part-time (more than 5 years)

    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.
