Good money for a serving position

Server (Current Employee)
York, PA

ProsWhen I was a server at the Cracker Barrel, I rarely made less than $10 an hour in tips, plus the $2.83 hourly base pay. Shifts went by quickly, and the customer turn-around was very quick. I rarely felt overwhelmed, as each server allowed a very manageable number of tables.

ConsAt times I felt the management was incompetent, and that the store would be better run by someone who has worked there a long time, rather than managers who undergo training for that position only.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees. Chances are they have been working there longer than you, and know what they are talking about.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
