    Bob Evans

    Service Desk Representative (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    ProsThis was a good company to learn and acquire skills from. It constantly a challenging environment and you have the opportunity to grow.

    ConsCommunication throughout the company was lacking. From my understanding, the pay is below industry standard for corporate positions. There is a lack of trust in leadership.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    stressful

    Grill Cook (Current Employee)
    Westerville, OH

    ProsYou make a lot of good friends there based on your personality and how you relate with others. it builds character and teaches you about how well you do under pressure. you get to work with others and build confidence.

    Consthe managers don't care about you or your personal life, you are scheduled massive hours and when you try to cut back they give you crap. If you're applying to be a cook, don't. you will have no life and if you don't do well under pressure this isn't a job for you. The pay is okay, when you start off they claim to give you a raise every 3 months but that isn't always true.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't treat the workers like they don't contribute to the store, without them you wouldn't have a store. Let them know they are appreciated.

    Hard Work, Under Appreciated $$

    Assistant General Manager (Current Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    Proseasy to get a management job
    working with people

    Conslong hours
    low pay compared to other restaurants
    impossible bonus structure
    little schedule flexibility

    Advice to Senior ManagementUse some sense when making budgets, If a restaurant, in a saturated mature market, does well one year and actually makes somewhat of a bonus do not punish their achievement by thinking a great year can be improved upon by the same percentage gain as the spectacular in the current year. more realistic goals

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    would rather work anywhere else

    Kitchen Prep (Former Employee)
    Columbus, OH

    Prosflexible schedule, middle management tends to be friendly. staff most often give their all

    Consno team work, or team to work with. no communication. low pay for expected output. upper management seems to care about employees least of all

    Advice to Senior Managementcut upper management pay. hire more employees. pay your employees more. take a look at how finer dining restaurants balance employee pay with profit

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
