What is paid time off like at Cracker Barrel?

Pros

Flexible work days (sometimes I would take up to 2 months off and they would never have a problem), family like atmosphere (they have good morals and are like family), paid vacation time, tables turned quickly so you get more money in tips

Cons

You never know how customers can act on a given day (but most of the times there were no problems) most time preferences were given to servers who had been there longest
