    I worked at Cracker Barrel for less than a year

    Pros

    Co-workers. You will meet a lot of great people you work with, minus the managers.
    Also the customers are great and you will become close to the regular customers who are really sweet.

    Cons

    Everything else
    The managers treat you like slaves. I was a cashier and the way they arranged the business was so cashiers had little ability to make decisions on their own and would need manager approval for everything. Yet the managers hated coming to help us with anything and never liked to take our cash drawers back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your Cashiers better. We are people, not slaves.

    I worked at Cracker Barrel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company is structured very well, with a fairly lengthy training program to ensure employee competence and preparedness. Managers are very flexible and willing to work with employees. The staff for the most part was very helpful and willing to help fellow employees

    Cons

    There is little room for growth, but that is understood going into the company. Far too many unreliable employees in the front of the house. The management stresses "server walk" too much, to the point where it can interfere with personal obligations while on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better qualified employees.
