    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Mobile, AL) in July 2020.

    I had to fill out the application. In order to qualify you have to be at least a PAR 2 trainer. Of course leadership and communication are a need. I got a call to setup an interview and interviewed with the general and district managers.

    Lots of conversational questions. It was one single interview that took place in the restaurant. It was solely with the manager which was beneficial for me as well. Overall it wasn't bad at all!

    Server/Waiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Tampa, FL) in June 2020.

    Interview

    I had what I thought was a wonderful interview. The manager asked just a few questions and was extremely friendly the whole time as he explained how many people usually worked a shift and what would be expected of me if I was hired. He said at the end they would let me know in a couple of days if they had room for me.

    After a week of not hearing back I called the store back to ask if they were still waiting to make a decision, and the employee who answered was extremely condescending and said "no one would hear back for a few weeks" because CO-VID was impacting their hiring (there was no mention of this during my interview the week before). After another few weeks went by with no response, my online profile updated to show I didn't get the job. I would have been fine with the decision had the store been upfront with me about their hiring situation from the beginning, but overall it was a miserable interview process. I had a lot of respect for Cracker Barrel before this, but this experience showed me that at least the location I interviewed for does not have a lot of respect for its potential employees.
