Hostess (Former Employee) – Hagerstown, MD – October 18, 2018
Working at Bob Evan’s as a hostess gave me good work experience considering that was my first job. However, I did not get trained well enough, then when I had to learn how to do things on my own it was really hard for me especially considering it was my first job which I didn’t think they understood. They also cut my hours without letting me know, from working to everyday to only working on weekends. Honestly, I don’t recommend working there.
Sever (Former Employee) – Shelbyville, IN – October 18, 2018
The job was a great job as a server. I love serving and I love customers. I enjoyed every second I was there. Although, they could never keep steady management there and it was very slow paced working. Never made as much money and I should have.
Assistant Restaurant Manager (Former Employee) – Marion, IL – October 17, 2018
How much do employees make? Glassdoor has salaries, wages, tips, bonuses, and hourly pay based upon employee reports and estimates. There’s a place here for every kind of brilliant. Everyone here is an innovator, or an innovator-to-be, no matter what
The job was great for me until they incorporated the Broaster for their new(er) chicken. It takes too much time to prepare and clean/sanitize completely. It's a restaurant, so it is very fast paced which I did enjoy.
I've been working at Bob Evans a little over a month now as Kitchen Prep and it's a good place to work. All new hires are eligible for insurance after 30 days aND the wages are competitive as well. I started at 10.50 and I'm already up to 11.50 although it's pulling teeth to get 40 hours/week but if you work hard , be on time and be productive there are hours to be had.. Im at 36 and a fixed schedule now which is really nice coming from 22 hours my first couple weeks

Line Cook (Former Employee) – Monroe, MI – October 14, 2018
I was very suprised to see that 75% of the food came from a factory which was already prepared and trown in a bag to put in the mocrowave. It was one of the most fast paced stressful under paid places I have ever worked for.
Some of the people i worked with were very nice.
There is to many to name just not a good place to work for.
Bob Evans Closed 21 stores last year & the one I worked at .
Servers (Former Employee) – Orange City, FL – October 13, 2018
I work for Bob Evans Restaurant for Over 22 Years & When the Restaurant Closed it felt like someone Died! We all worked like we were Family! I went to another Bob Evans Restaurant to work it was Good when I first got there and the they closed the Sam’s Club behind the Bob Evans Restaurant So did our sales and I was driving a long way to get there ! I went from almost 40 hours to less then 30 the drive was not paying for my Gas ! So on My way home from work I stopped by a Restaurant in Orange City & 3 weeks later they called & I have been there now 81/2 months & all I can say is it’s Not My Bob Evans Family! I’m getting old and I think I need a job like being a cashier! I also did at Bob Evans Restaurant!
Working at Bob Evans was a good job...but the only real enjoyment I got out of it was learning the management skills. I tried working in restaurant management because it seemed as though it wasn't what I wanted to do by working in a restaurant but it was the only thing anyone would hire me to do. So I tried to make it work but all I wanted to do was work in an office or at home doing what I loved and that was working with computers....
Hostess/Cashier (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – October 10, 2018
Always have to be working at any given moment. Standing most of the time, sitting is strictly not permitted. You have to smile a lot at the customers. When we get really busy you have to make a wait list!
Discounts of half off when you eat in the resturant.
You don't get a half off discount when you order a carryout. And bad reviews online.
I started out as a Hostess at a traditional restaurant, then went onto the sales person training &grill cook. From there went onto cooperate training program as a hostess trainer at new store openings in Ohio, Maryland, Pennsylvania & Florida.
