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

    Pros

    Ummm.... the customers are nice. That's about it. Not really alot i can say that working for Bob Evens. Hmmm...

    Cons

    Not the best people to work with and not a great place to work if your thinking of a solid income. You'll mostly get more of your money through tips and its not that certain. Training is the best cause your trainer would probably be slammed with work and maybe get all you can from it. Benefits sucks too

    Advice to Management

    Have better quality workers, hire people that love people not people that see people as a ATM. Give raises to more desired workers. Give better training to newbie.

    Pros

    Pays well with good benefits

    Cons

    Work positions instead of managing restaurant. No quality of life with the expected work schedule.

    Advice to Management

    You lose managers on a regular basis because of unrealistic expectations and disrespectful upper management (Regional VP's)
