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

    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.
