    I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    For college kids it is great for getting some extra "running around" money. Flexible hours but be prepared for them to fluctuate. Meant to be only a part-time job. Money can be good but only during long hours and peak times. Don't expect the hours though.

    Cons

    Biased floor plan; Cutting hours from regulars and hiring too many people. Good, loyal employees mean nothing to them. The list goes on....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some backbone and treat your long-term employees better. Let new comers work up to the better sections instead of being so biased.
