I worked at Bob Evans part-time for less than a year

Pros

Good training program for a new restaurant opening up, friendly co workers, overall pleasant environment, friendly regular guests.

Cons

No set schedule, little to no hours, no communication between management and staff, some lazy co workers, short/cut shifts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be accountable for all of your team members on duty and make sure they're performing the tasks they're supposed to so that their responsibilities aren't put onto another employee. Keep in mind the schedules of employees in high school and cut their shift before cutting someone who is 18+. Communicate to the employees before the beginning of the shift so they're up to date on what menu items are/aren't available at that time.

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

    Pros

    The company is looking on strong growth opportunities and there is a lot of room for career advancement.

    Cons

    Too lean for the amount of growth and change experienced for the last couple years. Many departments are vastly understaffed, and in my experience, employees are not compensated for the level of responsibility and amount of change they face on a daily basis. Work/Life balance is literally a joke between employees. In addition, a high percentage of company employees have been with the company for 15+ years and put in just enough effort to get by because they know the will not lose their job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay for employees who will get the job done right the first time.
