Fairburn, GA

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Cracker Barrel in August 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty easy, though it was my first ever interview and my first time seeking a job. At this particular Cracker Barrel, it wasn't near opened yet. I saw a banner saying now hiring. So me and my cousin went in the next day as walk ins, filled out an app, and waited in a seat line you could say. I didn't know what was going on. Someone called my name (manager) and she interviewed me. Asked me a few questions. Mostly standard questions. Tell me about a time you were in a difficult situation and how did you handle it? Do you have any work experience? How would you handle a difficult guest? Sell me this.. I waited for about 10 minutes and then interviewed with the Retail Manager. Her questions were more selling techniques and asked me to sell her an item. (It was a picture frame) She hired me on the spot and I recieved the paperwork, etc.

Interview Question – The sell me this question was only difficult because I was extremely nervous, but now looking back at it I did an amazing job.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiations-Minimum wage for first time worker

Retail Interview

Belleville, MI

I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Cracker Barrel.

Interview Details – 2 interviews. 1st with retail manager. 2nd with associate manager. Wasn't very professional. Just talked about everything other then the position I was applying for. Background check then orientation with a bunch of computer training.

Interview Question – Explain a time where you had an angry customer in a past job and how did you deal with the situation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They never talked about my pay to me. I had to go online and see the crappy pay I was getting. Less then $8 an hour! Can't survive on that.
