Cracker Barrel Employee

"I loved my job, my coworkers were nice, the food was delicious and we had plenty of customers but not enough workers. The managers wouldn't train properly because they were too busy. It was more like a crash course learn as you go type deal. There was one manager who would put stuff in the oven not tell anyone at least set the timer but when the timer went off your asking yourself in the middle of preparing food what's in the oven? Viola you have another job to do that you knew nothing about. Not very organized. I always had to work over my shift and I would not get a lunch break or they would spring something on me last minute causing me to stay over to complete the task. If I would ask for a lunch break they acted like it was an inconvenience. If I could eat I would be able to get more done! I tried calling the main office in Tennessee but they don't seem interested in addressing the issue. GIVE YOUR EMPLOYEES A LUNCH BREAK! They will be recharged and able to do more of what you ask of them."

"A very nice place to work. There is opportunity to growth, and moving up in the company means more options on location and variety in position. Good compensation and good people that very much follow the company vision of pleasing people. Most of the managers started at an entry level position-- my current manager started as a dishwasher."

"I have worked for Cracker Barrel for 7 years now. You will hear people say that their company treated you like family. Cracker Barrel doesn't because the people there are your family. I have never thought so highly of a company before but somehow they managed to select all the right people in their IT department"

"I am working for Cracker Barrel in their home office since Jan this year. Its an amazing workplace with a beautiful campus and I have learnt a lot here.The team is very diverse and management is engaging. The only reason I am looking for a change is because its located very far from the city and the commute is getting difficult for me"
