If you like to eat at cracker barrel you should know they treat their employees like crap. They threaten to fire people daily, and they talk to them like a dog!!!! I've witnessed them fire several people for just common mistakes. No reason to treat another person like that, just being a manager doesn't make you a better person...

I've witnessed the same thing. I agree with you. The food might be good but employees are treated like crap.

Tell me where decent jobs are here and I'd sure get another one... But if I'm not mistaken THEY DON'T LET ANY JOBS COME IN HERE!!!!! so enjoy your meal knowing that the person serving it to you is mistreated.

Yeahhh I worked there when I was a teenager and they were dicks then as well. One particular manager who isn't there anymore didn't like me so she made it a point to make my life a living hell. They will work minors everyday if given the opportunity. And you can forget about a break of any kind. I don't go there often simply because I remember how much I hated it lol hang in there! I wish I could say it'll get better but it doesn't as long as you're employed there!

Why mistreated someone just because you can? Because someone makes a lower wage than you do doesn't make you a better person actually it may be the opposite! I can't stand to see people mistreated at some crumby job.
AWFUL place to work

I worked there years ago when I was a teenager. It was horrible. I hated that job. They were so strict. They care nothing about their employees. Only the customers. I remember one night one of the servers walked by the checker board when a kid in one of the rocking chairs rocked back and accidently knocked an empty tray out of her hand. No harm, no foul. But the manager chewed her out, made her cry, and MADE her go out and apologize to the table for "scaring their child". That's ridiculous!

just find another job, no use staying somewhere that you're mistreated. Some people think they have the right to talk to people under them however they want which is not true, you should respect all people and treat them how you would like to be treated! I guess every one has had a boss like that though but that's all you remember about the person is how rude they are nothing else...

They claim to have an open door policy for employee problems and concerns, but they just argue with you until you give up! A manager allowed almost to the point of encouragement, another employee to verbally abuse me and physically threaten me. He then gave all of my days to other employees while I was off. I wouldn't have even known had another manager not called me because he was concerned. I called employee relations to let them know about the incident, SURPRISE!! they did nothing! They did nothing SO well, that my complaint wasn't even documented. When I applied for unemployment, the state called my CB store to verify my work history. My case worker just to happened to speak to the same manager who screwed me over in the first place, and he LIED and told them I still worked there! Now, I had to jump through a few more fiery hoops, but I convinced them that I know longer was employed with CBOCS. When I called employee relations to report him essentially trying to screw me out of any sort of livelihood, SHELLEY said that there is no reason to complain because I still got the benefits. That's right! Disregard the fact that he lied to the state to keep me from getting UI because I took another week to convince them otherwise. OH! And now I am in their records as having, "abandoned my shift." Never EVER work for Cracker Barrel. Dream bigger than that.

I don't know how they treat their employees, but last time I was there the food was bad. The mashed potatoes tasted and had the texture of 2 days old. Their macaroni and cheese was cold and so was their corn. Their buiscits were hard as a rock, but their country fried steak was ok. I won't be back. We have some horrible restaurants in the county. I heard a rumour that Cancun's is closing. Let's hope so. Los Primos is even worse. McDonald's is awful and so is Dominoe's Pizza. There are some good places here, to, like Hardee's, Pizza Hut, and Taco Bell. I'd just soon stay home and eat a $! tv dinner than eat at some of these slop houses.

Things like this happen at other Cracker Barrels too, I worked at one in Knoxville and they are just as bad. I worked as a cashier and would be stuck working alone most of the time with NO breaks and couldn't even get a manager to watch the register so I could go to the bathroom while working an 11 hour shift. Company policy states you can not go more than 10ft away from your register, that's crazy, the company doesn't realize Lincoln freed the slaves, cause that's how they treat their employees.

Why doesn't everyone get together and tell the managers you're not willing to be treated like this, call human resources, do whatever you need to do.

ok all of the employess that is unhappy with the treatment at the harriman cracker barrell, need to get their heads together and plann a day when the most of you are there, and at the busiest time of the day lunch-dinner-breakfast-- do a walk out, and leave them there to serve the food, and wait on all the can always sit up down on the state property and protest them for un fair labor treatment...they sit on roane street every day on roane medical.....let your voice be heard.
