    Pros

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

    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).

    Neutral Outlook

    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.

    I worked at Ground Round full-time

    Pros

    The staff at my location was great to work with, and I learned a lot by getting to do a little of everything.

    Cons

    As with most corporate restaurants, contact with company executives was sporadic and generally resulted in more work rather than more solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to be everything to everybody. Want to be an after work pub and night spot? Fine, but don't try to cater to children and families as well, it's just confusing.


  11. "Waiter"

    Paid in cash every day

    Cons

    High turnover and when business is slow, there is little money to be made.
