I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Pretty good training in most cases. Decent compensation.

Cons

I work retail and they can be a little ridiculous in their expectations of selling. People come there mostly to eat and then we're supposed to convince them to buy a bunch of stuff every time too. It can be frustrating when the numbers are low and there's nothing you can do but you get yelled at. The scheduling can be really frustrating too.

    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.
