    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Mansfield, OH) in September 2014.

    A little challenging, but after the application was admitted, i was notified right away. I applied around late August of 14', and i was immediately contacted within about 3-4 days or so. The interview was about 20 questions, a drug test, and while i was there they verified a few things upon my application and also ran a background check. Well i passed, received a call & was hired quickly. The evironment was great. I loved it. Probably wouldn't have switched if i didn't have too.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Burleson, TX) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I asked for the hiring manager, she told me to sit down and offered me a glass of water or tea, very kind. 5 minutes later I believe the restaraunt manager came out and began the interview. It was the typical, when are you available questions and what experience do I have with money. Afterwards he said he would be in contact with the retail manager to see what is available for my hours and said he will contact me 2 days later to see if he will set up a second interview or not. He promised he would contact me so "I won't be left hanging" but that's exactly what happened.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel in January 2016.

    Interview

    It's a 3 step process consisting of a phone interview, then a battery test, then an interview with your potential District Manager. They want to thoroughly understand your background to make sure you can keep up with the volume of most CBs. Pay and benefits are fantastic for the industry, but you're putting a lot of work and hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Vero Beach, FL) in December 2011.

    Very straightforward. Met with the Cracker Barrel management recruiter first. Had to take a test that showed personality and aptitude. Then met with the District Manager and recruiter. Both interviews were at a Cracker Barrel.. He asked several situational questions to gauge your ability to think on your feet. Very comfortable interview.
