I worked at Cracker Barrel full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

They usually pay pretty well. GM and ETC are great people to work with/for

Cons

Terrible managerial treatment, which is always turned down to hourly staff, too much drama. Its like high school, but more hellish.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your employees DON'T have to work for you. Stop acting like they have no choice. Just because you have a stack of applications in the back doesn't mean you have a stack of GOOD employees.

    I have been working at Cracker Barrel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The people I work with in the kitchen are cool. I don't like the food so I don't eat it all the time and get fat.

    Cons

    I've never felt like a cog in a corporate machine more than working at Cracker Barrel. Their promotion criteria is very arbatrary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding things to the menu. It's getting rediculous.
