    I have been working at Bob Evans part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people you work with are amazing so friendly and make you feel like family. Very helpful when you need a hand. Uniform is pretty casual and comfortable. Majority of the food is good.

    Cons

    Managers need some training, things you learn working there is disgusting an makes you never want to eat out again. Watching all the things that happens in back is just unsettling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think some of the stores preferably Irwin pa's Bob Evans needs new managers or they need taught about food service and what is healthy and not healthy example.. Don't just cut moldy spots off of vegetables and continue to serve them to customers and don't change the dates on expired foods when the inspector comes around.

    Pros

    Most of the employees are friendly, and the customers are awesome!

    Cons

    They over work you, They tell you 50 hrs per week, but it's closer to 60 or 70. And for the industry the pay is really low. It's sad when fast food companies pay more for their managers than a sit down restaurant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't keep your managers longer than their shift, and try real hard not to call them in on their day off.

    High stress with low pay and little or no raises

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New Albany, OH
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New Albany, OH

    I worked at Bob Evans full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people at the corporate office are a great bunch of people to work with. The new office is fabulous and very convenient location.

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking. Several key personnel have left the company along with many members of finance and accounting. Work is extremely stressful, little to no recognition, long hours, and little or no annual raise. Talk of a headcount reduction increases the stress.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be open with your employees and be more appreciative. Employees are leaving because of the way they are treated.

    Pros

    You learn how to give excellent customer service, how to work in a team, food safety...

    Cons

    Management is awful. They can never agree on anything, and talk to the employees like we're trash. Not worth the stress and abuse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe consider training your management to work more cohesively and be less abusive to employees.

    Pros

    The people you work with are mostly great.

    Cons

    Poor work life balance. Terrible training and terrible management depending on the store. Upper management is nearly impossible to get a hold.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what goes on with your GM's. Corporate is very very disconnected from the frontline.

    Pros

    Paycheck.

    Cannot even write 20 good words about this place.
    The bread was good and so was the chili?

    Cons

    Management, Co workers, no out times, too much bias nonsense,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not fair to tell someone when to come into work but no general idea of when they are getting off, unless of course they are sleeping with you. Maybe I just worked at a ghetto BE but it was nonsense. Since I wasn't sleeping with management or drinking with them and smoking blunts with the cooks, I got horrible hours, bad sections, screwed up food and attitude.
