    Cook Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cracker Barrel.

    Interview Details

    The more ex-employees that there are, or the more smart individuals that go to this site prior to applying for this job, the less people want to apply. This is why they will hire almost anyone that applies. They sit you down at a table in the dining room, ask you a couple questions to make the attempt at interviewing and to make you feel you need to work a little at getting this job, but the truth is, if you show for the interview, you're hired. Believe me I have seen some people hired that never tucked in a shirt, and still didn't after repeated warnings from management.

    Server Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cracker Barrel in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    One of the 5 managers (supervisors) interviewed me. He asked me various questions. Some of them were weird, like how much money I needed to make a week to pay my bills. Some of them normal, like how many hours I would like to work & what days I would be available to work. Apparently they only hire part-time though at this location. Something came across to me as odd during the interview about how the interviewer was talking & asking questions but couldn't place my finger on it. He was kinda skiddish & liked to talk, like he was reiterating the same points in different ways about the company. Almost like he was trying to make the company sound more desirable to work for then it was.

    Interview Questions
    • Most unexpected question was if I wanted to come back for a second interview. Apparently there are levels in the interview process. Supervisor level & General Manager level.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    My hiring process wasn't that bad because I had a friend that worked with before and she put in a good word for me. But as of late, the application process (at my store not sure of others) has been very unorganized. It's supposed to be every week, Monday-Thursday between 2-4 ppl can turn in applications and have a brief interview when they turn the application in but needless to say our store has lots of applications that have not been reviewed and lots of ppl who haven't been interviewed!
