Not the company it used to be, but there's still time to right the ship.

I have been working at Bob Evans full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

A lot of dedicated and loyal people at the restaurant and area levels. It's a demanding job, but it will pay the (modest) bills. And the food is high quality.

Cons

Steve Davis' fast food mentality has resulted in stagnation, unrealistic performance expectations, and gradual elimination of outings, bonuses, and benefits. Managers are underpaid by industry standards, yet executives wants managers' salaries cut further - which is only possible if experienced, higher-salaried managers leave the company. The various corporate office support departments have become revolving doors too.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop pushing coupons; they discount the brand's value (and fail to bring in new customers). Increase revenue and profit by opening new restaurants, and give your long-term General Managers a chance at promotion.

    Pros

    flexibility, willingness to teach you new things,

    Cons

    long hours - scheduled 50 work 50-65 a week, raises are minimal just enough to say they are giving you one, bonuses - don't even count on it my last was $100 and my GM's taxes of their bonus was 4 digits. bonus is divided amoungst all store managers 6% AM (2 of them) 26% AGM and 62% GM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if you want to decrease turnover let your employees have a work life balance. consider a 5 man team with 40 hr work wks like normal people have.

    Pros

    Co workers are very kind and friendly for the most part. Great opertunity to make good tips.

    Cons

    Managers are stressed at all times. They take their emotions out on their help alot. Little appreciation and consideration for employees from managers. Long shifts, little or no breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try not to show your negative emotions as much. Treat your employees a little better, and you may get better end results.
