    I worked at Ground Round full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Creative control in restaurants due to franchise. Great atmosphere and phenomenal concept with striking guest satisfaction benefits. Wonderful menu selection with easier to prepare entrees ensuring simple cross-functionality of kitchen employees.

    Cons

    Poor interaction with corporate structure causes confusion and lowered quality. Without a more hands on approach from the corporate office, the franchise owners have begun to stray from the core values of the Ground Round.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate Training team to tour the country re-establishing the core values of the Ground Round and assuring the brand continues to provide quality service to every guest in the same manner no matter the location.

    Some of the people there were interesting to talk to. If you do everything you supposed to do everything is easy going.

    Cons

    Was barely making 20 hours a week, I could have worked mornings too but then they would have me leave for 2 to 3 hours after morning shift then come back for evening(walking home took more then 45 minutes).

    I worked at Ground Round full-time

    Pros

    For a Server the money is really good if you work hard to get good shifts. People are always giving up shifts.

    Cons

    ABSOLUTELY NO STRUCTURE. Drama, drama, and drama. Some management love to make you look bad behind your back and bend rules for others. There is no loyalty or teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    None. You can't change who you are after so many years. Corporate needs to step in and take out the owner and Kitchen Manager.
