Oakton-wonderful management and clean, productive environment
Shift leader, server (Current Employee) – chantilly then transferred to Oakton (the best) – February 13, 2016
i honestly love Bob Evans, i love all seeing all the families come in have a great dinner/breakfast, it makes me smile. I learned how to make customers happy if they had a bad experience and they return. The management team at Oakton is outstanding, everyone works as a team and everyone helps to keep oakton a great environment. The hardest part of the job would be when a customer is so unhappy that it makes it hard to get them to return. My favorite part of the job is again, to see families come in and enjoy each other, also when customers talk to you like you are their friends, or my regulars, talking with them each time they come in to see how they are and how things are going.

Hours were short for what they were paying you. If you weren't one of the managers' favorites, expect to have a 2 to 3 table section while the favorites received 5 to 6 tables and made more than enough to pay the gas it took to get to the restaurant.
I really enjoyed working with Bob Evans Farms, the job was easy and still fast pace. My days went by fast and I was paid well. Everyone that worked there was friendly and helped you whenever you needed help. It also had an amazing gereral manager.

It gets busy for ten minutes and you think you're going to make money until your food comes out looking and tasting disgusting after a half hour of waiting and then you are tipped $3 or less. You could give a table all you had and all of the kindness possible and you won't even get a 5% tip. The managers could not care less about your life outside of Bob Evans. They legitimately expect Bob Evans to be the only thing you're ever worried about and devote your whole life into it. Then, if you have a problem regarding something of the company, they do little to nothing to try and fix that problem. So much drama with everyone. Would never recommend working here to anyone.

I got along well with most of the staff and management while working their, I made some life long friends. The work gave me a challenge but if I needed help their was always a manager around to lend a hand.

Pretty laid back. It was a good experience to have. Management was good. Workplace culture was okay. The hardest part was using the cash register. The most enjoyable was working with my co-workers and customers.

Worked there 19 yrs ago and loved the job. I still have many friends who remain working there, so something has to be right . Food was always great and working with the staff was also great. Also loved the regular patrons.

As much as I enjoyed working at Bob Evans, the management was horrible. Many employees were late if they even showed up but was still able to keep their job. They hired just about anyone off the street which would be fine except many of the people didn't know their right from their left and would complain every 10 minutes about needing a smoke break but if you didn't smoke, then you rarely got a break unless you are a minor.
