Cracker Barrel Complaint - Lack of respect for employees
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -- Not only are all of those things true but their respect for their employes is nonexistent. About a year ago someone had the wise idea of giving the managers a bonus for making "goal hours" meaning that if they make so much in sales for an hour they get a bigger bonus. Sounds innocent enough, right? But the manager at the store in Joplin, MO, the general manager has taken this to an extreme. He now gives servers, who make $3.73 an hour two table sections on the weekends, when we should be making our money for the week. Keep in mind some of these people have worked there for over ten years and can handle more, and did before the goal hour bonus took effect. Now we are not making enough money to pay our bills or even fill up our gas tanks on a weekend night, while his check is growing, and CB managers would certainly make enough to pay the bills witout the bonus at all. I encourage all who, even if you like Cracker Barrel, to skip the one in Joplin, MO. THere is one in Springfiled, MO, just 60 miles away, or one in Tulsa, just 100 miles. Some regard has to be shown to these people as the manager has said that it's an employers market and he can do what he wants. I just think everyone should know how this company treats people.
