    I have been working at Culver full-time

    Pros

    For the area, Culver offers decent wages and benefits. Culver provides free lunches to their staff so long as the cafeteria is open. The salad bar is a wonderful option. Culver provides a healthy and active environment, offering two days a week where you can utilize office hours to use the gym facilities. They foster an environment that makes the students it serves as its top priority. Most culver employees are valued...

    Cons

    Culver has an interesting “class” system. Hourly are treated differently than salaried staff and Faculty are treated even better. Culver is set in a very traditional mindset, which has meant that they are extremely slow to change and not motivated by innovations or market change. Many people enjoy this tradition; however, it has clearly led to operations mishaps and poor hiring decisions. Culver believes it to have...

    Advice to Management

    Embrace change/new innovations and take the time to investigate what our competitors and others in the industry are doing at all levels. There is a lot to be learned from consulting with other academic institutions. Pay local community members a small hourly wage to participate in the sporting acivities. Employees have lives outside of Culver. Many are trying to raise families and would appreciate time with them rather...

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

    Pros

    Beautiful campus! Lake Max wonderful and can allow you to have fun in your limited free time. Also, a few of the workers here are truly wonderful and unique people. The campers usually walk away having had a great experience.

    Cons

    Culver, and those in charge, clearly do not care about their summer employees at all. Basically, you are isolated in the middle of nowhere, 20 min from the nearest hospital, yet they refuse to provide you with any medical services even in an emergency. The pay is an insult and comes out to far less than minimum wage when you divide by the hour. Assistant counselors work upwards of 12 hours a day, 7 days a week. The upper...

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees a fair wage, and treat adults like adults. Also, medical care is a must for anyone trapped in the local area and is a basic human right. The experience of working here could be so much more than it is.

    I worked at Culver

    Pros

    I interned during summer school. It's a beautiful campus and a family environment - you feel welcome there! The grounds are absolutely gorgeous, and you get to walk around on campus and do not have to stay in an office all day.

    Cons

    The summer vibe can differ from the winter vibe. Summer school seems to take over campus. However, they are good people trying to make sure the campers have the best time at camp. The kids really want to be there!

    Advice to Management

    Keep having summer intern programs - it's great for college students who wants to get some job experience, as well as be around other college people working at summer school.

    I worked at Culver full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    You get to live on a beautiful campus and interact with campers from all over the world. A truly amazing experience.

    Cons

    It is very time consuming and you rarely get time off. Very long hour days, but still an amazing experience.

    Advice to Management

    They need to stop hiring people solely based off of the fact that they attended the camp, because they don't always take it seriously.
