    I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great pay, flexible hours, great upside on busy days for more money due to high turnover

    Cons

    You can get a bad manager who makes your life hell, side work and silverwarerollingdutys can be a bit much if you’re too busy to get to them during the times you’re on the floor

    Advice to Management

    Most are doing great, just listen to your employees.

    I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    50% off food while working, 35% off food all other times (which is awesome!) Flexible hours, but you usually need to work weekends.

    Cons

    Can be extremely boring & hard to find stuff to do because you’re either just walking in circles looking or folding the same clothes over & over. Low pay.. hardly any hours beside cmas time. I’d recommend becoming a server.

    Advice to Management

    Abby (retail manager) is so great. Always open to talk to her about anything or ask anything. The only thing is she want some you to SELL SELL SELL.
