Host (Current Employee) – Birch Run, MI – August 15, 2018
My time at the Bob Evans Restaurant has been very nice in the fact that everyone has been very kind and helpful in my time there, but, management is all over the place it seems with managers coming and going at the blink of an eye it's very difficult to establish a set-in-stone way of doing things as each manager does things a little bit differently than the other, making working with all of them all the more confusing. Otherwise, they are all very kind and hardworking people from my experience, and if you don't mind getting your hands dirty and working your butt off, it's at least a great place for a first job for a teenager.
Great people and environment
Short breaks (if you're even given one), work from other fields bleeds over into the hosts' jobs more frequently than desired.

Bob Evans is a great place to work at if your are looking for a second job. The people there are great, I love the team I work with now. The management need some work. But they hiring some new managers so hopefully it will start getting better.
Waitress (Former Employee) – Dayton, OH – August 14, 2018
I was a waitress so we got paid half of minimum wage and people never tip well unless you're super cute which I never have been. It's alright if you don't have any bills to pay or if it's just a part time job on the side for extra cash
Grill Cook/Prep Cook (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – August 14, 2018
I will never ever work at this location again. My experience was horrific at best. Lied about pay hours were cut shortly after I worked almost 12 hour days during the Thanksgiving week. Once Xmas came I worked maybe 20 hours a week. MAYBE! And the MGR thought he was going me a favor. Was promised a position and once someone came in with less experience and willing to take less pay they got all the “hours”, go figure😑. They give you a three dollar sausage for Xmas “per policy”. Happy holidays guys. WAy to SLAVE for the year😩🤷🏾♂️
Server, Kitchen Prep, Hostess/Carryout (Current Employee) – Chambersburg Pa – August 14, 2018
if you’re content with just being a server, host, cook, kp, dishwasher then it’s perfect. I loved it but hated it at the same time. Plenty of pros and plenty of cons. I loved what I did but I disliked the amount of times I was overlooked for management position because I worked too hard. They lack discipline.
50% meals while working, the regular guests
Drama filled restaurant, spineless managers, no room for advancement
The job was stressful due to lack of staff and over use of the employees that worked there. If they’d call you on your day off and you said you didn’t want to come in, the next time you did they mdr it hard on you.
The pay is too iffy. Wage is $2.23 an hour, and you hope to make up for it in tips.
Server (Current Employee) – Milford, DE – August 10, 2018
I have enjoyed working here, but there is no stability in pay for servers. We don’t make enough for the work we do, and there’s nothing we can do about tables that refuse to tip us. It happens all too often and I’m left dwelling on the fact that I put my heart and soul into the service I give, and customers don’t realize that I’m just a kid trying to get through high school, living off tips.

This job was very easy going and was able to work with odd hours if necessary. Management is very lenient with hours and scheduling. Also very good at keeping people in order. Very clean place to work.
