    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (San Marcos, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty fast. I came in and waited for about 15 minutes before someone came to speak with me. Once interview started it was easy going from there, it took about 30 minutes and flew by. They said they would call me in for a second interview that same day, which they did. I went in for the second interview and that one took about 5 minutes and i was hired right after.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Oklahoma City, OK) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I sent in an application for a hostess job online and was invited in for and interview. I went in an interviewed with a manager who was very nice, we talked for about 30 minutes and he told me he would like me to come back in and talk with the other manager. A girl I know was applying for a cashier job around the same time. We both had interviews with the other manager on the same day. It was my 2nd interview and her 1st. When she went in the lady that spoke with her told her that she should be a hostess and that she didn't want to be a cashier. She then introduces her to the manager and they went back to interview. I believe this lady was an employee training coordinator or something. She spoke with the manager for a minute and then came over to me and told me that they weren't in need of any hostesses at that time.

    I did not consider this a good experience. They convinced the other girl to take the job I wanted instead of the job she applied for. Then lied to me and instead of telling me that they wanted to hire someone else, they told me that they didn't need any more hostesses. I find this hard to believe because the first manager I interviewed with was talking about schedules and what days I could work. Also, if they didn't need hostesses, why have me come in twice? The whole thing was a bad experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Chesapeake, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Cracker Barrel does two interviews. My first interview was very good. The manager was friendly, natural, and personable. I felt like I was just talking to someone about myself. The second interview was not as good, however. I came about five minutes early for the interview, but the manager did not come for almost half an hour. When he did come, he was in a rush to finish the interview and due to his foreign accent, I had trouble understanding him as he quickly asked questions. Other than the second interview, the questions were concise and easy to answer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (York, PA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I had to go through 2 interviews. The first one was with a new manager, and the 2nd one was with the main general manager. When I went to my 2nd interview, they told me that the manager was busy, so I'd have to reschedule. On the rescheduled date, they had me wait 55 minutes for my interview. So not a very professional experience.
