    Fair place to be an employee, not so much for management.

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

    Pros

    Family oriented. No alcohol service. No long nights. Guest base is great.

    Cons

    Too much in company rivalry. Upper management unapproachable. Too much division between day shift and night shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management...area coaches, have a lot to be desired when it comes to professionalism. Very caddy, under handed and play favorites.

    I worked at Bob Evans full-time (less than a year)

    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.
