    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Bob Evans (Mentor, OH) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Once your online application is received (takes about 5-10 days) the store manager will contact you to set up an interview at a time that is convenient for both parties. The hiring manager was courteous, and the process took about 20 minutes. Questions are mainly about work experience, and hours you're available to work. Most of the positions offered are part time, and the hiring manager plainly stated it was so the company could avoid Obamacare. I declined the position after she said that.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bob Evans (Jacksonville, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online and called to set up interview a week later. Showed up at day and time scheduled for interview, lower level manager came out surprised saying they had no interviews scheduled that day and that all the managers were busy conducting a managerial meeting. I inquired about if the mgr who called and set up the interview could come out and confirm but this mgr said that was not possible as they were busy in the meeting...mind you it was 2pm and only one occupied table. At the very least they should have had my name, phone number, as well as my filled out application information but manager claimed they never heard of me. Asked for my name and phone number and said they would call, of course never received call. Basically I drove 30 minutes to give them my phone number which they already had considering they called me to schedule for interview 7 days previous. Very unprofessional and disorganized business...I complained to Bob Evans Corp but was ignored.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Bob Evans (Bowie, MD) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I came in approximately 20 minutes early but was kept waiting for around 45 minutes before i was seen. The interview was brief and not thorough at all but they seemed like they wanted to hire me. They take you through a "trial" period of around 30 min-an hour where you work with the hostess on duty to be a hostess but the lady they stuck me with was clueless on training so they just left me to deal with customers. I had to seat people (they didn't even bother explaining the seating chart) and give out menus. I was polite but considering there wasn't really anything to do the hostess i was working with was just like "yeah we don't do much on slow days". We had a family come in and i seated them and asked if they wanted a booster seat for their kid and they said yes and when i went to ask where the booster seats are, the manager came back and told me i wasn't right for the job and that i could go home. Worst experience ever. Very unprofessional
