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

    Pros

    Great place to work. Tips are ok. My managers give us all candy all the time.

    Cons

    You can't have Sundays off.

    Advice to Management

    Be more respectful of employee's scheduling wishes. Like, if I need sundays off for religious reasons, you need to respect that!

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

    Pros

    The pros are they have good food and the food is worth the money. The rate of pay is just. The advancement is very good within the company and the core values are excellent.

    Cons

    The cons are. They don't follow the core values. They don't discipline employee's for the stuff they do. They are very messy and some staff is down right out of line. The employees run the store more than the management team.

    Advice to Management

    Managers take back your store. Don't allow people who have been their for awhile to run the store. The messy stuff that went on during work ours on cooks line should never happen period. Be more mindful of the core values you hold and enforce them. Everybody is to comfortable at the store I was at.
