Hey Experts -

I have a client of mine that has a front desk machine which is running OS X and has a shared folder called Docs which the other machines access (some Mac some PC).  Anyway we are having a bunch of file persmisions some folders have the correct permisions, most do not.  I can manually Get Info on a File or Folder and set it to Read/Write for Everyone and then can open up the file and save it on the PC, but i do not want to do this for every folder.

I have tried the Repair File Persmisions that found some errors but didn't fix the problem.  

On a PC i would just Right Click on the Folder, give Full Access and it would apply to all subfolders and files.

How can I do this on the OS X?

While what strung suggests will work you have a couple of other options.  You could use sharepoints to set up some more indepth file sharing that will allow you to work around these issues in the first place.

The second option is to create a cron or launchd job that performs a chmod on a regular basis on the share so that you don't have to constantly be changing permissions yourself.
