    #man cron
    # ps -ax | grep cron
    /usr/sbin/cron

    if the output from the command provided by archangel.amael was to not show anything (the ps awx |grep cron) it is possible that: cron is still installed and that you have it disabled, you are in a runlevel that does not launch it, that it error-ed out on startup, or that it was never configured to run.

    this is almost never the case, but it is possible.

    generally when cron is installed and not running the command crontab -l as root should provide tangible output
