I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time (More than a year)

Pros

No tip sharing. Always have cash.

Cons

Place is ran horribly. They only way you'll know you're out of a certain item is if you get screamed at...if you happen to be in the kitchen. Management treats you horribly. They will never send you home no matter how sick you are. Schedules you shifts you tell them you can't work. NEVER out on the time they schedule you at. Sidework and silverware can take up to an hour. Basically you get treated exactly like you get paid. you're a 2.12/hr employee and that is the way they treat you. Like cheap labor.

Advice to Management

Treat employees better. Let us leave at the time we're scheduled.

    Pros

    Really Good money to be made during the months of November-January If you need to pick up extra days for extra money, you can Some good managers out there Cracker Barrel can get busy, so they keep you moving, day goes by faster, the more busy they are Good benefits if your a Par 4... also like the whole Par system Good job for someone coming out of high school

    Cons

    Some guest can be rude, you have to ignore it Some guest may not tip, you have to ignore it you may be scheduled until 3pm, but won't be leaving at 3pm, it varies. so no exact time you will leave for the day, or night the money you make varies, never know how much you can or can not make for a week walking, walking, and more walking any resturant work is not easy not a good job/career for long term I would recommend this job to a friend, but would tell them not to stay too long, this job can get frustrating at times, and you are very tired after a long day at the Barrel

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful, we may not make as much money as you, but we are still equal, treat us all with respect, we are all human and everyone makes mistakes. put your self in our shoes, treat others the way you would like to be treated! the guest are not ALWAYS right, their are some dis-honest people out there. please stop with the yelling, we are not children, and even with that said, no person, or children like to be, or deserve to be yelled at! we need to hear that we are doing a great job, more positive feedback! We as servers feel some of the managers treat us as we are never good enough! Its always, servers do this, servers do that, servers don't do this, servers do more, servers, servers, servers!! I will admit there are some managers that help out when you ask them, and I am thankful for each and every one of them that help, and not just stand back and yell at us!


  2. Made some great friends, but a not a fun environment to work in.
