    Pros

    You get a paycheck.... I don't have anything nice to say

    Cons

    Horrible hours, management turn over is very high, extremely stressful. ...not worth the pay. Constantly short staff, work in category every shift for hours. Food quality sucks, constantly training new staff. Every day staff quits do to shortageg of employees, stress or low pay.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, listen to your managers concerns and address them in a professional manner. No one enjoys coming to work, it's not family friendly and it seems that area coaches are not realistic in expectations. They have been out of restaurants so long that they have no idea how to run a shift.

    Since Mr. Bob Evans passed away his vision has been totally lost. The first few years I worked for this company I loved every minute of it.

    Cons

    Everything. Terrible management, complete chaos, never had food, dirty facilities in the end, uncaring employees

    Advice to Management

    Try caring about the store more, we are all there for one reason....the GUEST

    There isn't much you can say to Management, other than stay sensitive to your employees. Have a lot of understanding but don't tolerate laziness or complainers. these type of negatives effects everyone. .

    Pros

    The hours that are available to work, and the money is good for the time and effort you work there.

    Cons

    Filled multiple sexual harassment claims, nothing done about it, and still hasn't been handled. Overworked, and treated with disrespect. Terrible management.

    Advice to Management

    Value the time and effort employed put in for the restaurant and do not treat those that have stuck around like trash.

    Pros

    Not bad for my first job. The interview was super easy, I got hired right on the spot, even without prior restaurant knowledge. Coworkers were pretty nice and helpful.

    Cons

    After working there for a year management went downhill and were rude. Nobody really made money, even on busy nights. When I put my two week notice in, my manager gave my entire last week of shifts away to someone else. The other downside is that you don't get your credit tips at the end of the night, and you get them on your check two weeks later. They don't really do any raises or advancements either.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely get better managers in the stores. Two of the worst managers I ever had were at Bob Evans, they didn't know how to handle some situations with guests or they would overcompensate. I had a table I thought walked out on their bill and the manager told me to run after them outside the restaurant.
