Very Easy Interview
I applied in-person - interviewed at Cracker Barrel in November 2012.
Interview Details – I had 2 interviews, and they both were very typical interviews. Same questions, "Why do you want to work here?". "What do you know about Cracker Barrel?". You are told that a criminal check has to be run before the second interview is even scheduled, and if you have had a feloney, or an arrest they will not hire you under any circumstances. After clearing the criminal check, the second interview is meeting all the managers of the location, and answering their questions.

Negotiation Details – There are NO negotiations, they will only pay a bit over minimum wage to start no matter what education or experience you have.

Interview Details – Filled out an application, and then was interviewed three times by a different manager each time. Had to go back in person to remind them I was still interested and to schedule subsequent interviews. Each time, the interviewing manager would look at my application, ask me a few questions, and tell me that if I didn't hear anything in a couple of days, to come back in...this happened three times before I was given a job offer.
