Thread regarding CBRL Group Inc. layoffs

Info on upcoming layoffs at CBRL

1st round will be 4-7-20. This will be higher paid underperforming managers and not needed home office staff, guest relations phone service, store support limited. I feel second round will be 4-20-20 this will be closing units doing less than 10k per week in take out. Cutting managers with eligibility of rehire.

Sad part is they will work the ground level before they work the executive teams and anyone above the
General managers.

Bumped from a different thread for important info. Originally posted by @1alyl+13cmRHor.

Some of the HO staff let go were offered other positions. They are also possibly looking to beef up the catering and takeout department/staff with possible re-hires in August.

Same experience. Terrible company. Lie about caring . Only care about money. Managers are always in position to save labor. And if you draw any attention to that you are then deemed "underperforming". They punish hourly employees by scheduling , there is no formal documentation for performance development. You are always wrong until proven more wrong.

The HO is absolutely trash. You have to be white, blonde or bald with pristine white teeth to survive here. They are quick to mark you as a “underperformed” if you don’t fit in. I don’t know why people patronize their stores. They fired a lot of people in the first round now the second wave is about to hit. The executives at HO are all safe

Yes, sadly, this is how they operate. The Cracker Barrel "family" has a way of deserting you when times are hard. And, they typically lie first, then there's no communication at all, then, you're gone.
To add insult to injury, you're often tagged as "underperforming," or "unnecessary."
There are many wonderful folks that work here, at the HO and in the field, but Leadership only looks after itself. You'll see the front lines decimated first, LONG before any executives take one for the "family!" And, of course, tenure means absolutely nothing, since you "cost" the company more...

Cracker Barrel is ready to have veteran attire and items in their store to make money off of but no veteran discounts and no veteran preference when it came to terminating all these Managers especially those with long tenure. They say you will know what your company thinks of it’s employees by the way they treat them during this pandemic.

my SIL is home office and got laid off in the 4/6/20. He was probably considered an underperforming manager. He had been with the company for a good part of 20 years.

My spouse, an hourly retail manager, was among the layoffs.

In total, 75 retail managers, 197 associate managers, and about a dozen general managers were laid off on 4/6/20. I don’t know about above store managers or home office staff.
