Application Details

I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Bob Evans.

Interview Details

Three step process. No hard questions. Just talk and have a good personality. Asked about my experience. One of the area managers went on and on about how wealthy the company was and you should act really impressed. They will talk you up about knowing how to run labor, which should have been a red flag, since "Managing" usually meant the dishwasher called out and you're stuck for 8 hours in the tank.

    Generally you must be a shift leader. Your general manager and you must talk to your area director. You than get set up with a regional staffing director and they will interview you. If you are willing to move or go where ever you will get promoted faster.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Bob Evans in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    It started from an email asking me to call them and request an interview. I did so. From that I met with a regional staffing manager. That manager was a nice person, and asked many questions pertaining to areas outside the restaurant industry. If that interview went well, one would interview with the area coach. I then met with the area coach and had another long interview. After that the candidate meets with a general manager and then with the area coach again. It is a longer process, the people seemed friendly and really enjoyed their jobs, it would have been good to work there.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Bob Evans in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line and was then called for an interview. Because it didn't suit the recruiter I drove 1 hr. and 23 minutes to get to the interview destination. I arrived about 7 minutes early and waited in the lobby, the recruiter was late by about 10 minutes for my interview. The recruiter came out with the most stiff and unfriendly greeting I ever had. We then preceeded to a table in the main dining room, where there were customer's all around us. Very uncomfortable atmosphere for an interview. As soon as he preceeded to tell me all his wonderful qualifications and his territory he had to cover, I knew this wasn't going to be good. He had an atitude from the beginning, we did not have any business chemistry. Period. Questions: Have you applied to any other restaurants? (what is it to them?) Repeated questions that had the same meanings, then he as snotty as possible, would cut me off in the middle of several of my answers. This recruiter was one of the worse I have ever seen. Maybe he has been at the same job to long? I am experienced and have interview many many candidates in my career and my thought would be, it left a very poor opinion of working for Bob Evans in a management role. It they reflect the rudeness and arrogance that this recruiter portrayed. I knew when I left that interview that I would never work for this company.
