    Pros

    Great customer base business reasonably priced menu

    Cons

    They continued trying to make me do back kp and the meal program is 50% and they went to biweekly pay.

    Advice to Management

    Change pay back to weekly as it has been for decades, that hurt the company, offer meal program free except for expensive meats for employees, and keep assigned employees titles where they are best to meet job requirements

    I worked at Bob Evans Restaurants part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 401k benefits, good hours

    Cons

    The CEO is pushing sales of grocery store Bob Evans food instead of keeping up with the restaurant and they are slowly failing. I was a shift leader, and was considered "lower level management" but was not offered PTO. Not a good company because they do not take care of their employees or customers.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the companies values and make more ethical decisions
