    I worked at Bob Evans part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This was my very first job, and I loved it. I started out as a hostess and then they gave me the chance to move up to serving. I made good tips and worked with some great employees and managers that were always willing to help out in anyway. Even at the busiest times, the atmosphere was still fun and happy. Managers were always willing to be flexible with scheduling, so it was a perfect job for me as a college student, and it wasn't hard to request days off when needed.

    Cons

    Some people didn't pull their weight, but you'll get that at any job. When I did do extra work, it wasn't recognized by upper management even though others got BEST awards and such for doing less work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the BEST values that make this a great company. Recognize hard work when you see it.

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

    Pros

    You got tips to pay for the gas it took to get there.
    I liked that they gave you a set schedule, it was easier to plan ahead.

    Cons

    I was given one shift a week that I worked for 4 hours at a $3.50 per hour wage on the slowest night of the week.
    There was no proper training to help new employees learn the job.
    They expect first time workers to just "know" what they're doing.
    I was constantly being "yelled" at and talked down to for doing something wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect, especially if they're new to the job community, and please take your time with training.
