    Pros

    Friendly work environment, benifits to some

    Cons

    Vacation pay for a waitress is a joke, have to fight for any promised extras. I.E. training pay, contest prizes. The hours are manipulated so you miss full time. Example- 3 hour shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Realize people you employees are trying to survive , your company seems to reject this goal.

    I worked at Bob Evans part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Easy first serving job, not having to cash people out is nice, there's no tip sharing, flexible hours and can pick what days you want to work.

    Cons

    Awful management, coworkers steal tips and managers don't care, always having to pick up coworkers slack, almost always got out an hour later than scheduled out time, people in the back are unreliable and often times Id have to make things myself, lots of drugs and people come to work high.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring the first person you interview, make sure you actually get a feel for how they would be as a worker!!!
