Company Culture

I’m speaking in terms of MY pay. Their culture sucks, they have none!

Support from management

Mostly sex talk, if they aren’t talking about that,either dogging an employee or goofing off in the office.

Teamwork

You’re by yourself. Hope you already know what you’re doing.

Freedom to work independently

More like you’re rushed and yelled at until you work by yourself anyway and get behind and short and simple it’s not a choice. That’s what you do there!

Internal Communication

I was fired due to MY MANAGER not informing another manager that I called out in time. Yeah. You read that right!

Gender Equality

Plenty of LGBT worked there and some still do. We don’t judge.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I myself respect my elders, but when The ELDER is freaking out yelling at everyone you have to stop and almost slap her to calm her down so she ain’t a thing at work for real.

Career Development

If you’re trying to work here looking for management opportunities. . R U U U N N N

Overall compensation for your work

I kept racks on racks with that 9-2 and 4-10 Monday through Saturday.

Office / Work Environment

Usually messy. If it’s clean or even remotely straightened up I can promise you it’s because we have less than 5 tables I’m the whole BUILDING

Work-Life Balance

Lmfao try no. I worked 9-2 breaked from 3-4 and worked 4-10pm went home and repeated. I kept racks I ain’t complaining however I did not ever have time to do S*** for myself or family.

Company Image

“Cracker Barrel” you tell me.

Job Security

Lady has been at this location for seriously Y E A R S ! With a nasty disgusting attitude and poor hygiene and potty mouth. How? She threatened to sue.

Challenging Work

No help. Usually three managers at least two at ALL times and ALWAYS two out of three can’t do anything besides fill drinks. Sorry grill line !

Inclusive / Diverse

That it is!

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get REAL managers that know how to properly manage a company successfully. That’s the first step. Really everything will work itself out immediately after that.

Overall compensation for your work

For all we in retail, we need better compensation. Guest thinks we are the ones responsible for why they have to wait almost 40 minutes for to go orders they call in 20 minutes ahead of time. They think we are responsible for their guest check being wrong just because we ring it up. We have to listen to every complaint about their experience from the time they get to the hostess stand, their bad service etc.....and when you we use our S.T.A.R.S. and ask if they would like to speak to a mgr, they say No which mean we've spent 5 minutes listening to complaints when we could've been waiting on the next guest

Office / Work Environment

Retail cash area have no work space to work when ringing and bagging guest items

Work-Life Balance

Retail mgr works with your schedule

Job Security

It's hard to get fired
I've seen employees no call no show for a few days and still have jobs. They are late and no consequences .

Workplace Safety

I don't feel comfortable parking my car in the lot. Too many break ins

Challenging Work

Learn new way of doing things all the time

Suggestions for improvement

What I dislike about the company

Putting up with restaurant managers not responding

Company Culture

They're all different individuals with different backgrounds which work to make things broaden.

Support from management

Horrible. Just that simple. All the good ones quit or got fired because of the sneaky ones. Sad.

Teamwork

No one likes to stock and its Management responsibility to make sure it gets done. When its brought to their attention they still allow it to happen. Then get the incoming staff to do that while trying to get tickets done too. How can you continuously go do that and remember your orders? Ridiculous.

Freedom to work independently

Yeah, its OK if management gets the right stuff.

Internal Communication

Management is overworked, the good ones. They ignore your request until its too late. They have a lack of importance, and try to speak to you crazy.

Gender Equality

No problems there.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Some are respectful and others don't respect themselves let allow an elder.

Overall compensation for your work

Slave work.

Office / Work Environment

Nasty, you supposed to smell food when you walk into work not sewage.

Environmental Friendliness

Too much drama.

Work-Life Balance

Its alright.

Company Image

Its just that store. Sad. Not all of them are like that place.

Workplace Safety

There were all type of broken tiles around that kitchen. Someone fell and got hurt bad. That's when they fixed after countless request from staff.

Inclusive / Diverse

Sad.
