Time consuming, always busy unless restaurant is slow
Waitress (Current Employee), Lansing, MIJune 23, 2015
Pros: 50% discounted food while working
Typical day at work would be greeting customers getting them drinks. taking orders and serving foods, making sure i check on each table to make sure they are enjoying food. Managers are great and co-workers – more... are great. There's always good costumers and bad costumers. The hardest part of the job is making sure no matter how many tables you have to make sure everyone is happy. People seem to need everything at once and i can't get over whelmed. Most enjoyable part is the other servers i work with. This is because they know what i am going through and we can laugh about things. – less

Very Unorganized workplace
Hostess/Server (Current Employee), Germantown, MDJune 22, 2015
I have been working as a hostess/server/carryout specialist in a busy breakfast restaurant for over a year. Working in a restaurant has taught me many things and the most important is patience. While working – more... in such a chaotic environment, I was forced to learn how to do many of the different jobs in the restaurant. I know how crucial teamwork is when it comes to running a business. I help as much as I can in order to keep the level of stress down behind the scenes because our attitudes are vital to creating positive customer experience. – less

Intimidating but decent enviorment.
Bob Evans (Former Employee), MIJune 10, 2015
Pros: 50% off
Cons: Rude management
A typical day at work as a host would be coming in, and usually there's atleast one other host on, depending on the day,your responsibility is to seat the door, give menus, and buss tables. If you're closing – more... you wait until all customers leave and clean bathrooms, clean tables, vacuum, mop, and make the restaurant presentable.
A typical day as a carryout lady would be coming in, setting up the bakery (icing the blossoms, making cookies, etc.,) take carryout calls, get the food together, bag it, carry it to the cars, handle cash, keep the bakery stocked, occasionally box breads.
I was very intimidated coming into this job because I heard they were a bit rude, and it has definitely been proven.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the interaction with people. – less

Was a great place to work when it firsted opened but, things just declined over the years.
Server, Customer Service Representative (Former Employee), Akron, OHJune 9, 2015
Pros: The people I worked with.
Cons: Management just didnt care.
I worked for bob evans almost 15 years. Greeted guests and took orders. Delivered food and made sure customers were taken care of. Brought stock out and kept up with that all day so that we never ran – more... out of anything. Answered phones for to-go orders and got them ready for pick up. Always made sure the customer had a great experience and would want to come back. The hardest part of my job was only a couple of us would keep everything running for an entire shift while others stood around and watched. I guess if a few of us were getting the job done that was all that mattered. The most enjoyable part of my job was getting to know all of the regulars over the years as they became my second family. That is what I miss the most. – less

friendly work place......great costumers
HOSTESS/CARRYOUT/SERVER (Former Employee), dayton, ohioJune 7, 2015
Pros: great business and pay
Cons: managment is not the greatest
I loved working there. The employees were great with working with you, and most times made a average working day amazing. This job taught me to multitask and to have great communication skills. That's – more... really the hardest part......but it did not take me long to learn how to manage it. This job was great, its just the managers just seem to do whatever, as if they did not care who trained who, or just sat in the back while we sometimes fend for ourselves. – less
