average place to wait tables...

Server (Former Employee)
Greensboro, NC

Prosflexible schedule
they promote from within
frequent pay rasies
some opportunities to be traveling trainer or crew trainer
NO tip outs to a bus boy, host or bartenders (because there isn't a bar)

Consteamwork is stressed. so stronger servers do more than weaker ones.

bills are low there, you have to make money by table turnover

since they dont' have a bar, you aren't going to be learning anything about beer, wine and liquor that would benefit you at other restaurant.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere are too many servers on the floor too often.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not a good job if your a hostess

    Hostess (Current Employee)
    Cicero, NY

    I have been working at Cracker Barrel


    Pros: - The benefits package - Not that long of an orientation -… Cons: - For a hostess the pay is only 7.50 an hour, which isn't that great for all the stress and being yelled at by others… Advice to Senior Management: my advice would be if you want to keep hostess pay them better and don't yell at them. Give people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
