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

    Pros

    Fast paced, had to learn to think on my feet. Also, i was able to work in a myriad of positions

    Cons

    The hours were never the best and I did not really have a say in when I could work or not

    Advice to Management

    Give employees a little more autonomy

    Pros

    A lot of the employees love their job. So that friendliness and positive energy makes you feel better. Ok insurance.

    Cons

    You work 50 -60 hours a week but only get paid for 40. Some managers play favorites. Some days servers make more then you. You have to put up with a lot more then what they really tell you.

    Pros

    Works great with school and sport schedules! I've worked here since my senior year of high school, more than 4 years ago and rarely have had a problem with scheduling issues.

    Cons

    There aren't any set hours, meaning you never know what time you'll get off work. This could be great if you didn't have class or homework, otherwise it's a pain to never know your hours.

    Advice to Management

    Update POS software. It's very outdated!

  7. Very Organized and good company to work for.

    Pros

    It is a very stable company and wont be going anywhere anytime soon.

    Cons

    Need to be able to keep up with a fast pace work load.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Management needs to focus more on the customers rather then the food coast.

    Pros

    Great coworkers
    Good management
    Work great together as a team

    Cons

    Bad tips when serving because dine in bills are not big
    Constant changing of menus
    Menu is way to big, needs to be narrowed down
    Small hourly wages

    Advice to Management

    Less menu changes, cut down options in menus. Make more clear ways for hourly associates to raise their hourly pay.

    Pros

    Flexible hours (depending on manager), easy (all clothes are sent away to be cleaned), fairly autonomous, I usually had extra time to do homework, etc

    Cons

    Minimum wage, can get boring and be unstimulating. But it was perfect for me for an after school job. Customers can be whiney if they don't like how their clothes turn out- but you can't do much bc you may have little to no interaction with the cleaning process
