    Pros

    Great fun environment, friendly people to work with, enjoy working with customers that appreciate the effort and time in making their meals

    Cons

    Some customers tend to be too needy; some workers do not show up to work on time and cause disruptions

    Advice to Management

    Work on relaying information in terms of reviews and such to employees in order for the employees to understand areas of improvement

    Pros

    We work as a team. Bob Evans treats their guests and their employees well. Benefits are available and incentives are offered-- at our unit, our managers aren't afraid to get their hands dirty, they wash dishes, work the grill line, prep food, help out the servers and do all of the administrative stuff at the same time. Management treats us very well. They prepare us before the menu changes, they create a good workplace, and I really like it that they care about the community. It makes me feel good about going to work. I may not be a rocket scientist, but I am proud that I work for Bob Evans

    Cons

    I would not want to discourage anyone else from working there. It is just for me, the space is limited and on weekends it is a little crowded and I tend to feel a little trapped. It is also very warm because we have the lamps to keep the food hot, and the humidity coming from the dishwasher etc... But even with that, the mood at the restaurant stays positive.

    Advice to Management

    I have learned a lot watching the way that our unit is handled. I don't have any "advice" for my managers, I think they are doing a great job!

    Pros

    Extra day off per month
    Solid company-no debit
    bonus
    regular schedule
    professional managers and leaders
    Changes to make company better

    Cons

    Some changes to make the company more profitable. Some work some do not.
    Since becoming mostly a shareholder company the smallest benefits were taken away, but the company still provides major benefits. (employee discount on retail, Christmas party)

    Advice to Management

    Small benefits that are taken away often have the same impact as taking a larger benefit away

    as long as you do your job! The people are great! Employees, co-workers and of course management! You can learn so much from this company to take with you to other companies as well! EXPERIENCE!!! You can learn SO much!

    Credit tips go to your paycheck and are taxed.

    My advice to management is do what you feel is right, don't let anyone make your decisions for you.

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

    Pros

    Its like a family and it is nice to have a set schedule which is hard to do in the food and beverage industry. Most of the managers seem to really care .

    Cons

    just like any other job sometimes you just get tired of things and people are particular about their eggs and they forget you are a person as well.

    Pros

    Everyone their is like family. Like in the company philospohy "treat strangers like friends and friends like family"

    Cons

    It's discouraging after being promised for several months a promotion. Actually getting it takes a long time.

    Advice to Management

    You would retain and keep employees happy (A happy employee is a happy customer) and health if you offered more hours to your employees or offered full time hours with out the benefits.
