Anonymous Employee in Sellersburg, IN
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Sellersburg, IN) in May 2023
I applied online and was given the option to schedule an interview using the online system. In theory it’s a great idea. However, when I showed up to my scheduled interview they didn’t even know I was coming. They were pretty busy so I offered to reschedule, but he went ahead and fit me in. He was a nice guy, easy to talk to, and straightforward. He didn’t have any of my information in front of him since he didn’t know I was coming. It is one of those places where they interview you sitting at one of their tables where customers are watching you have your interview instead of taking you to a back room or break room.
- I had applied for the To Go Orders and he was asking why I chose that position instead of a server.

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (New York, NY)
Completely ignored after 2nd interview. No response to repeated reach out attempts. The pay rate is very low considering the demands of the furniture sales position and the training promised seemed like it would be extremely demanding while simultaneously working on the sales floor.
