    Interview

    I sat with the general manager. She was very kind, up beat, and friendly. She was willing to work with me on my experience and try to find the best fit for me. After that I started training. Training is well constructed. They leave nothing to chance.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel.

    Interview

    After submitting an online interview, I was asked to come in for a one-on-one interview with the hiring manager. The interviewer asked typical interview questions regarding my character, previous experience, different scenarios, and so on. After the interview concluded, I was told that I made it past phase one of the interview process, and would be invited back for a second interview with the location manager. I was called the next morning to say that they decided to skip the second interview and go ahead and hire me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Athens, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They called me back the next week after applying to schedule an appointment for an interview. I showed up at the designated time, and they sat me down with one of the managers. The process wasn't too difficult at all. I was just open, honest, used impressive vocabulary, and had simple answers prepared. It was a breeze. A follow-up interview was scheduled, and that went better than the first.

    Interview

    I was called for an interview 2 days after applying online. I was called for an interview for 5pm. I arrived 30 minutes early and was told to sit outside. They called me in at exactly 5pm. The interview was relatively easy and lasted about 10-15 minutes. She was very easy to talk too. She also give me a brief description about the job and uniform. She told me she will send the background check through email. As soon as I left, she sent the background check. I completed it right then and there. A week later, I was called for orientation.

    Negotiation

    If you're applying to be a server just be as friendly as possible, because that's what they're looking for. I didn't try and negotiate anything, so I wouldn't know how to advise anyone on that, and I'll bet it varies from person to person.

    Hostess Interview

    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.
