No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Upward mobility, star program, ability to move to new areas.

Cons

I was only scheduled for evening shifts and always had the back room. When I asked a manager to be moved around, I was still set to work in only one location or moved for one night. I had previous restaurant experience yet was still treated as though I had no ability or skills.

Advice to Management

Move people around more, get to know the new members of the team sooner to reduce employee turnover.

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

    Pros

    Not much, was only tolerable when lines were short which didn't happen too often. As a cashier, if you're lucky you get to occasionally go straighten up merchandise or possibly don't have to clean bathrooms that day (but you might have to).

    Cons

    tight spaces, long lines to deal with alone, bosses with attitudes, cleaning bathrooms, irritating repetitive music, responsible for register shortages, having to answer phone while checking people out. The job was overall frustrating and I could only stand it for several months

    Advice to Management

    Don't make the cashier do everything, and don't make them responsible for shortages (makes the job a lot more scary), have more cashiers, pay better

    I worked at Cracker Barrel part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Loved speaking with guests, over the 3 and a half years I was there I met so many people that I can call friends.

    Cons

    In the 3 years I was there so much change happened that I could tell afflicted with the guests interests.

    Advice to Management

    They need to keep their management teams in check. So many problems arose when we were cycling through management.
