Retail Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Cracker Barrel in September 2010.
Interview Details – I had to take a test that gave all different types of scenarios like figuring profit & loss and overhead and similar. I thought the test was kind of ridiculous as when hiring a manager you should be more concerned about the person being a good fit; you can teach anyone to read a spread sheet. The interviewer wasn't someone I warmed to right away which is important to me in choosing a new job. I didn't feel his questions really pertained to the job I was interviewing for.
Interview Question – Questions about partnering with the restaurant side and clearing tables, etc. View Answer
Reason for Declining – I think I'd hate working at cracker barrel. I mostly did it for the interview experience and practice.
