Kitchen work here is hard and unrewarding
Cook (Former Employee), Fredericksburg, VAMarch 25, 2015
Pros: None
Cons: low pay, filthy kitchen, lots of rude staff
The managers were always nice but the kitchen work was hard and unrewarding. Not that I dislike hardwork and all but it's nice to have a sense of pride and such and it's just not there with this company. Short hours and low pay.

Good Experience
Server (Former Employee), Fort Worth, TXMarch 24, 2015
Pros: discounts
Cons: no breaks, constantly on your feet.
I would do the same thing everyday, my job was to take guests orders and make sure they were satisfied with their meal and service by having a positive attitude. I learned to use the register to ring in orders and how to read and interpret them. I learned how to provide customer service. The management was not always the best. my coworkers were always very helpful. what I most enjoyed was meeting new people both coworkers and guests.

productive work place
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee), Rocky Mount, NCMarch 23, 2015
Pros: breaks, enjoyable job, great co workers, paid weekley
Cons: no benefits since i was seasonal.
my daily job at work was basically promoting sales and helping the guest with any retail needs. I was only seasonal so I wasn't there long but I enjoyed my time there. I had pretty great coworkers and made friends with some people. The most enjoyable part was probably whenever kids came in and were playing with the toys and I could help show them how the toy worked and all. I also enjoyed when I had sweet customers and a lot of them came in a lot. I learned that you have to come to work everyday with a smile or a great attitude no matter what mood you were in. You needed to let the customers see that you were in a good mood and had a positive attitude.

Pros: great employee discount, friendly and family oriented environment
Being my first job I didn't know what to think of what to expect, but the four years i spent there were the best days of my life. I would come into work and love to see the regular customers come in.

Cracker is a great company to work for. I have really enjoyed working for them for 4 years. A typical day is making sure I am pleasing people. The most enjoyable part of my job is the guest who come in there and eat with me.

Host (Former Employee), Richmond, INMarch 19, 2015
Pros: discounts
Cons: drama
I worked for Cracker Barrel as a host. This was my first job (at 18) and what an experience it was. The environment was lovely, as long as you avoided the drama. You have to jump through hoops to advance, but it is possible (and fairly quickly). Nothing happens, though, that doesn't happen anywhere else.

working as a server
server (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXMarch 19, 2015
Pros: flexible schedule
Cons: revolving management
A typical work day at The Cracker Barrel consisted of serving guests beverages and food, making sure their needs are met, and making their visit enjoyable and pleasant. The management was constantly in transition, as the company had great difficulty hiring and retaining a general manager. The methods of operations were sometimes changed to fit the situations. Co-workers were on the most part hard working, helpful, and friendly. The hardest part of the job was the frustration of not having the appropriate tools and materials to work with. Ticket times often suffered due to human error. The best part of working at CBOCS was meeting the guests and getting to know the regulars and acknowledging and meeting their needs.
