Server Interview

Anonymous Employee in Douglas, GA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Douglas, GA) in June 2015.

Interview

Horrible. I applied in the restaurant and was offered an interview on the spot. I went in and was then asked for a second manager's interview. I thought things were going well until when I got to the restaurant for the second interview they said they were "too busy for me" and asked me to come in the next day. I came in and the exact same thing happened AND a manager rudely told me I was not the right fit for the job because I am 17. Would not at all recommend.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Batesville, MS) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Was called for an interview. It was only about 10-15 minutes long and pretty easy. We sat down at a table in a closed section and got to know each other. I had experience so I'm sure that made the decision easy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Cracker Barrel (Mattoon, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Interview was immediate and informal. One plus was that they hired me on the spot and asked me to come in the next day to start work, which was what I needed at the time. I submitted my application while eating there with my grandparents and surprisingly enough a manager wanted to meet with me for an interview before we left. They must have been severely short staffed to hire me on the spot like that, and I am not surprised because they have a hard time retaining employees due to the hostile patrons and unreasonably low wages.

    Negotiation

    There was little to negotiate, they offered an unreasonably low rate of pay and the choices were take it or walk.

    Application

    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.

    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.
