No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

The people are good to work with and dealing with the customers, especially the regulars, is a lot of fun.

Cons

Sometimes a four-hour shift turns into a 2 hour shift when there are slow times. Like most retail operations, you're never sure how many hours you will get from week to week.

Advice to Management

The par 4 employees should be rewarded for there loyalty. That means they should have a consistent schedule and a consistent number of hours. The penny pinching by bean counters needs to end.

    Pros

    Friendly managers, flexible schedule, reputable company, great food, good employee discount if taking PAR tests

    Cons

    Conservative values may not correspond with all employees. Health insurance is difficult to get (the enrollment process), and it is overpriced and not very good coverage.

    I have been working at Cracker Barrel part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Employees good to work with and helpful, PAR levels allow you to gain more in hourly wages and discounts

    Cons

    Policies like "One Stop Shop" (try to take customer's order on the greet) make customers feel rushed. Servers are spread thin and expected to take care of every need for other servers' tables at risk of neglecting their own tables. Tips are generally poor.
