I worked at Cracker Barrel full-time (More than a year)

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 Management

Hire better qualified employees.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    I did make some very good friends while working there.

    Cons

    90% of them time, they would not let you take a break. Even if you worked a full shift, you had to stand there and smile and smell all the food. You are treated like a criminal, and have to get searched at the end of every shift. They claim that they're flexible with your schedule, but that's not true. Management takes advantage of their title.
