    I worked at Culver Capital Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They have good sales training that will help you learn how to talk on the phone. The training was good. It teaches you how to read a script very well.

    Cons

    They overwork and underpay you, and treat you like you don't matter when you're an account executive. You will be expected to make 160+ calls a day, and will be expected to "do whatever is necessary to get leads and apps." Management has a tendency to listen in on your calls and berates you for no reason. On blitz day, the reward for making 100 calls by 10AM is that you "can take your tie off" and that's just... demoralizing. They expect you to work excessively hard for very little pay, and only a handful of people there make a good living (namely, management makes all the money). They post everyone's call times and call number as a way of shaming people into competing against one another (if you're in red, management ridicules you). This is the worst job I've ever had.

    Advice to Management

    They need to respect their employees and not treat them like slave labor. Management needs to be less arrogant and rude. They give employees cheap incentives like gift cards and mugs to incentivize them, but it's really just demoralizing. They need to focus on retaining employees instead of continually flipping them out for new ones. I was the third person fired in my class of 8. Leaving Culver was the best thing to... ever happen to me.

    Once again, this (as well as others posted by the same person ) appears to have been created for the sole purpose of disparaging our firm. We pride ourselves on fostering a positive and transparent work environment and are highly committed to ensuring all employees are given the best possible opportunity to be successful in the financial services industry.

    I have been working at Culver Capital Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Most employees are really cool and college educated. All are under 30 - Leaving this company

    Cons

    - Compensation is poor. Other equipment leasing companies offer a much better compensation. - There is no training other than summarizing sales books and putting it on a piece of paper -Its 8 hours a day dialing on a phone. Its pure telemarketing despite what management says. - Management treats employees with disrespect and all employees are disposable "seats to fill" - Unethical business practices and pitches... told to clients

    Advice to Management

    First off, all the positive reviews done on this company are by management. No one in the office actually enjoys their job. People are condescendingly treated. Its a telemarketing job. Plain and simple. Secondly, management talks about confidential information to other employees. They talk about who has been let go and why, which is extremely unprofessional. Lastly, its elementary school all over. Its... micromanagement that I have never in any previous employment. They know how long you have been on the phone, numbers dialed, etc. Basically if your not in before the required time to start, your late. Look for another Capital company to work for. The pay will be better and so will the culture. Much better to keep looking than to work for this company. Very high turnover here. Did I mention the longest time someone has been there is a year? (Other than management)

    Recent turnover at Culver has been with entry level Sales Account Executives, who have been with the company less than 4-months. It is during this entry level probationary period that evaluations are done to ensure there is a good fit for the new hire and Culver, which is a consistent practice with most companies. The Account Executives at Culver who clearly understand the performance expectation, have a genuine willingness to grow and expand their knowledge/skill set, motivated by our success model are advancing to higher tiered sales positions making $10k-$20k per month, within 9 to 12 months. Culver Capital Group is rated A+ by the Better Business Bureau and proud of their high ethical standards and reputation in the industry.

    I worked at Culver Capital Group

    Pros

    Base pay - instead of paying strictly commission, this really helps in the early stages.

    Cons

    Strictly telemarketing company and they sell it as something else You get a couple of deals, you probably get fired because they dont want to pay you your fair earnings. Small cubicle work place Management's ability to effective manage the group really sucks and practices are not fair.

    Advice to Management

    Get involved in the group.
