    Cashier/Retail Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Knoxville, TN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cracker Barrel in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to my local Cracker Barrel and applied in person and was interviewed that same day by the Male Manager. After the interview he told me I was qualified for the position and told me twice he would call me for a second interview with the other manager (who was just hired) when he got her schedule in order. Two weeks later and have heard nothing from them, guess honesty isn't their first priority. I have another job now, but if you say you're going to call someone then you should it's common curiosity, and Cracker Barrel at least the one in my town is seriously lacking it.

    Dishwasher/Busboy Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cracker Barrel in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview was very short and easy. The manager asked very basic questions. They were in immediate need for a busser so I was hired on the spot. Initally, I did not have a very good experience starting out; during orientation I arrived in the wrong colored shirt and was sent home, then there was an issue with my social security number and was not paid for weeks. Luckily the manager was nice enough to work through all of these issues with me and now I enjoy it.

    Bussing is a very physically demanding job and we earn our pay.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cracker Barrel.

    Interview Details

    I called the store just to ask about hiring opps for 16 year olds & was asked to come in! I came in, was interviewed with manager for servers & then was referred to retail manager. I was interviewed by her a few days later, then called back for interview with the store manager. The interview with the store manager was really nice, she & I just talked about the role I would have, she got to know me, & got a feel of my personality. The interview with the store manager was a bit more intense and straightforward!

    Two interviews, one with mid level manger and then general manger. Fairly innocuous interview. If you have experience you can slightly negotiate for your starting salary.
