    Pros

    Gives a chance for someone just coming into the work force, to know what a dead end job is like.

    Cons

    Freedom of speech 1st amendment, DON'T VIOLATE IT, or I will sue. My comments are 1st Amendment rights, and no one can ask to have them deleted, got it!
    Many Cons. The Company goes on to Glassdoor and Indeed, and WRITES THEIR OWN REVIEWS disguised as an employee, and say how wonderful the salary is and how great the managers are, with other lies.The company is terrible. The pay is terrible. Job security is terrible. They have a terribly high employee revolving door. They go on Monster.com and try to sucker new employees in to replace the ones that quit or they blew out. JUST a typical modern fly by night corrupt company who slave labors their employee's, and have ego problematic managers who think their really something, and will sexual harass the new girls (don't let your wife or girl friend work there is their good looking). I have scene it over and over, I know what I am talking about. If you need a very small paycheck, what to put up with idiots, get treated like crap by your overseers, and just to work a very short time somewhere, then by all means go fill out an application.

    Pros

    Decent work schedules, company benefits, fast promotions due to turn over, stable company

    Cons

    Compensation, turn over, leadership, above store management and senior management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honestly this company is run from the top down, the senior management is so far out of touch with the reality of the stores and daily operations, they will never fix it. Eventually this company will tumble.

    I have been working at Bob Evans full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We work 12 hour shifts on a 2-2-3 schedule. So you work about 15 days a month for decent pay.

    Cons

    Management is a joke in this company ever since Bob Evans forced the former owners to either sell the company or be put out of business. They are running the company into the ground and running out good workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your good workers better. Lazy workers run this place and make it harder for those trying to make an honest living.

    Pros

    Customers are very pleasant. I like the job itself. Never worked in a restaurant before. A different kind of experience. But not too bad.

    Cons

    First day on job felt totally ostracized. Coworkers were rude and irritated if I asked them anything. Got hatefull nasty answers. Managers included. Actually talked to one of the managers about this. He did the same exact thing the next day. Never even acknowledged I was even there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you dont want constant turnovers in your employees act like you want people to work for you.
