    I worked at Ground Round part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, fun staff and management. Many repeat customers who would come in on their regular night and ask for their favorite servers. It's a perfect position for college students needing the flexibl hours. The restaurant has been around a long time and is sure to be a staple in St. Joseph for many years.

    Cons

    Waitress area was a little tight, but we managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Treat employees with respect. The servers and bartenders are the reason people come here to enjoy your mediocre food.

    I worked at Ground Round part-time

    Pros

    awesome management staff and coworkers, fun place to work, flexible with hours, and rewarding with usually pretty nice customers. A local atmosphere, so a lot of people that know the menu and also many travelers to converse with because of the location and lack of other nice restaurants in town.

    Cons

    many scheduling issues (but they would usually take care of them right away), some catty-ness between some coworkers, unreliable ending time as in any restaurant business

    It was a very middle of the road experience... not spectacular but not horrifying either.

    I worked at Ground Round

    Pros

    Good meal discount, some fun coworkers and guests- it's a restaurant. Not dissimilar from any other chain. Management was pretty flexible with hours and requested time off.

    Cons

    The line cooks could be really difficult to work with. This is a old dying restaurant chain. The one I worked in closed because of so much competition nearby.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I found it a pleasure (for the most part) to work for the management staff at my restaurant. They were firm with you when you'd done something you shouldn't have, but they weren't stingy with praise. If you did a good job, they made sure that you, and everybody else, knew about it.
