Typical Restaurant

Host/Server (Former Employee)
Charleston, WV (US)

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

ProsDepending on what managers you have, work can either be super fun or miserable. Like most restaurants, managers have basically free reign to do whatever they want. If you're lucky, you'll get a manager that is actually willing to work and help you out.

ConsIf you're NOT lucky, the managers can make the place a living hell. Lazy managers are commonplace here and will usually just watch by as you struggle to carry the ridiculous workload placed on you. Unfortunately, even if you do luck out and get a decent manager, corporate obnoxiously cycles them out every few months anyway so once again you'll be at the mercy of the luck of the draw.

Advice to Senior ManagementParticipate in the business; don't just expect the employees to do everything (including your jobs)

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
