Associate Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Perrysburg, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Perrysburg, OH) in November 2016.

Interview

Applied online. I am an internal promotion so the process is slightly different than an external hire. I was interviewed through Montage/webcam. Then they send an assessment test to determine your leadership style. Timed test. If you are willing to relocate you can go to home office training immediately. Otherwise you wait for an open position in your area. When they have a need for you they send you to home office for training.

    District Manager interviews you for about an hour. He starts with a little about himself, to put you at ease, then asks to know about you. After that the situational questions begin, pretty basic questions, you are in the middle of the dining area so don't get distracted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Columbus, GA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    The interview went quite well actually. After speaking with the talent acquisitioner, he was impressed enough to set up an interview with the DM. To my surprise, I was invited to one of the busiest stores in the district. I believe this is a tactic to observe your body language during the lunch rush. The GM was pleasant, yet not easily impressed. He barely smiled but my experience and answers were enough to offer me a position.
