Upper management tends to move around a lot, so policies in procedures of how the company wants things done need to be communicated properly

    I worked at Cracker Barrel (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers. You will meet a lot of great people you work with, minus the managers.
    Also the customers are great and you will become close to the regular customers who are really sweet.

    Cons

    Everything else
    The managers treat you like slaves. I was a cashier and the way they arranged the business was so cashiers had little ability to make decisions on their own and would need manager approval for everything. Yet the managers hated coming to help us with anything and never liked to take our cash drawers back.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your Cashiers better. We are people, not slaves.
