Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Shiloh, IL) in March 2015.

Interview

they had me go back in and interview when I turned in my application. The manager seems really spacey and preoccupied and in all honesty came of as rude. He said he was going to have me come back and interview with the general manager.

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Spanish Fort, AL).

    Interview

    Brought in for a quick interview. It was essentially a one and done type interview. Sat down with a manager in the dining room and discussed my background in the food industry. This was followed by a quick description of the role and company. Pretty simple interview considering the high turn-over rate for servers.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Springdale, AR) in June 2012.

    Interview

    One interview upon providing resume, second interview given the next day. The first one was a breeze, just went over requirements for working there such as uniforms. The second interview with the gm was more uncomfortable. He seemed to have drank the corporate Koolaid. Talking about CB's culture like they pay enough to pretend to believe that crap, but I suppose he is well compensated.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Simpsonville, SC) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I walked in to drop off a resume and pick up an application. After I filled out the application I gave it to the hostess who failed to give it to the hiring manager. But I asked for him anyway, introduced myself, told him I was a college student interested in people, hard work, and planning ahead. I had little serving experience before, but he liked my enthusiasm and told me to come back for an interview with the general manager and to fill out a new application for the sake of formality.
