Cracker Barrel Employee Login Problems and Solutions.

Occasionally, users may encounter difficulties when attempting to log in to their account. While this can be frustrating, there is usually a simple solution. However, if you are unsure of what the cause of the problem is, it is best to run through the following troubleshooting steps, which cover the most common issues.

The first thing to do is to check that you have successfully activated your account. Users often receive a username and an initial password to do this, but you may instead be required to follow a link sent to your email address and you may need to perform an initial sign on using your Cracker Barrel network login credentials.

Next, you should check that your internet connection and your wi-fi connection are actually working. The easiest way to do this is simply to refresh the login page, or to visit any other website and check that it loads. If the page does not load, the problem is with your connection, rather than with the Cracker Barrel website.

Make sure you are using the right login page:

The old login page at: should automatically re-direct to this new login page, but there could be a problem with the re-direction process, so it is best to use the direct link. It is also recommended that you update any browser bookmarks to the right URL, in order to avoid running into this problem at a later date.

It is also worth double checking that you have entered the right login credentials. Your password is the one you selected during the account setup process and this is case sensitive. For this reason, you should have CAPS LOCK turned off on your keyboard. On your first ever login, your password will be “00” followed by the last four digits of your SSN.

Finally, you could try some quick web browser-based solutions. Make sure your web browser is updated to the latest version and try clearing your browsing data, cookies and cache before attempting another log in. You could also attempt to sign in using a different web browser, or a different device altogether.

If you have forgotten your password, you can reset it through the platform itself.

Alternatively, if you opted to enter your email address, you should receive an email with instructions for resetting your password. Simply follow the instructions included within this email and select your new password.
