- No OfferPositive ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months – interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Lebanon, TN).
Conversation with recruiter. Conversation with potential manager. Panel interviews. Overall a good experience. All interviews were amiable and flowed easily. The downside was time wise the entire process was way too long. There seemed to be a lot of trouble coordinating schedules on their end. It was a 4-month interview process. They ended up promoting from within, which is understandable considering it is cheaper to have someone transition into a new role than hire an entirely new employee. All feedback I received was positive, they encouraged me to keep up with their job postings to see what else becomes available. I liked the company and everyone I met so would consider applying again if a position came up that interests me.
- With the recruiter is was mostly an informational session to see about my background and give a broad introduction to the position. The second interview, with the potential manager went more in-depth about the position and asked a lot of questions about how I saw my background and strengths fitting with the role. The round of panel interviews focused a lot on preferred management style, communication, etc. Answer Question
