Bob Evans was a great company to work for!

Prep Cook (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bob Evans part-time for more than a year

Pros- There are many different positions available
- Management is wonderful
- Pay and benefits are competitive for restaurant business
- Good company values

ConsI don't think that there are very many cons t working at Papa Vino's. You have to be able to work with people who have different personalities and there will always be someone who you clash with in that way.

This is a great company to work for.

Server (Former Employee)

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

ProsIts like a family and it is nice to have a set schedule which is hard to do in the food and beverage industry. Most of the managers seem to really care .

Consjust like any other job sometimes you just get tired of things and people are particular about their eggs and they forget you are a person as well.
