I have been working at Bob Evans part-time for more than 5 years

Pros

our guests make it wonderful to come to work every single day. I love my regulars and they love me ?

Cons

corporate is corporate~you lose major mom & pop closeness. While it is good to have standards and high expectations, our slogan of treat each guest as if they were family isn't always extended to employees. It has been getting better in recent times, but not always.

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

    Pros

    Depending on what managers you have, work can either be super fun or miserable. Like most restaurants, managers have basically free reign to do whatever they want. If you're lucky, you'll get a manager that is actually willing to work and help you out.

    Cons

    If you're NOT lucky, the managers can make the place a living hell. Lazy managers are commonplace here and will usually just watch by as you struggle to carry the ridiculous workload placed on you. Unfortunately, even if you do luck out and get a decent manager, corporate obnoxiously cycles them out every few months anyway so once again you'll be at the mercy of the luck of the draw.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate in the business; don't just expect the employees to do everything (including your jobs)

    I have been working at Bob Evans full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Bob Evans is a great company to work for. I have been treated with respect and my hard work is appreciated by all. The company promotes from within if u are willing to put in the hard work. I have been there for 13 years. They are family oriented and are very understanding about family needs.

    Cons

    Training of new employees is a little lacking lately. In my opinion they are turned lose to soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to see to it that new employees are thoroughly trained. I think you would have a higher retention rate. I have seen some new people that were set up for failure because they were not trained properly.
