    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Dickson, TN) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and the hiring manager got in touch with me the same day for an interview the following Monday. I went in 20 minutes early and waited for about 10 minutes before I was interviewed. The general manager only asked me about past experience and then talked for the rest of the interview about the company. He mentioned asking me some situational questions but never ended up doing so. He then explained that if he hadn't gotten in touch in 48 hours, then they'd went ahead with someone else. It seemed clear to me that they'd found someone else at that point.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel.

    Interview

    It felt like midway through the interview the manager said they already just hired people and it was beginning to be their slow season then she just got up and left it was the weirdest interview I've been on and the manager seemed kind of rude towards the end
