    I worked at Culver's full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was awesome for a QSR, family environment, solid leadership

    Cons

    You can't go higher than GM unless you go corporate or your owner/operator has multiple locations which most don't.

    Advice to Management

    Be a LEADER. Don't let people take advantage of you.

    Pros

    Everyone I work with is super kind and it’s a big happy family.

    Cons

    Pay rate not always reflected by performance. Some who aren’t up to par get paid more.

    Advice to Management

    Even out the pay scale a bit. It’s rather discouraging when you’ve been there longer and do more but someone makes substantially more than you.

    No decent insurance

    Can be a very overworked experience
    Nothing offered for full time employees
    U have to fight and argue in order to get a raise or u can be there for 5 yrs and management will try to pretend like they keep forgetting to give you your yearly review.

    Advice to Management

    Please listen to employees. You get bad employees due to having bad management and you get bad management from from having bad Corporate. Take the time and effort to discuss a game plan for what is expected on the job so people know what they are getting themselves into. How about offering a decent means of living for full time employees crew chiefs and some managers that have been there for years that have rent, bills and kids to take care of? People shouldn’t been there for so long working 46hr weeks with no benefits and not even a paid week off.
