I worked at Cracker Barrel part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Flexible schedule IF you don't put Any Availability like I did...that was a mistake
Half off meals every shift, Discounted meals any other times
Fun, nostalgic environment
Easy to get certain days off for important things
Ability to move up a PAR in a quick time manner
Awesome coworkers
Some great regulars

Cons

Rude guests
Chaos during peak hours and Sundays
Hours, Short shifts
Wasn't able to get full time AT ALL except management
Added work that was unexpected but expected to complete within 4 hours plus dealing with guests, stocking, cleaning, and helping cashiers and restaurant side
Having to seat guests when stupid managers let the hostess leave at 9 instead of 10pm and then having managers look at me like I was supposed to seat them when I clearly had guests in the Retail store
Pay for the work
Getting used by the manager because she knew I was her hardest worker.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give your hardest working employees FULLTIME and fire the lazy ones! Also give the employees what they are worth and quit being cheap!!

    Pros

    Flexible schedule which was a must for me. Managers are really great. Very laid back feeling. You can gain exposure to several different fields-cashier, retail, stocking, serving, hosting, etc. It definitely gives you much needed experience for any future job in retail, restaurant, and sales.

    Cons

    Sometimes have to work holidays. And just because you 'can' work certain hours does not mean that they will work you. Not really a fan of the uniform. But overall I'm very happy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to be supportive of your employees. Y'all are doing a great job!

    Pros

    Teamwork is huge and someone will always be there to help. Can easily move up and around within the company. The company has good morals and values which you see in all employees.

    Cons

    Huge business, fast paced weekends. Each store has many employees, cant always be heard.
