    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Oxford, AL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Application:
    took a little under a month, had to call every week before they'd acknowledge my existence

    Interview:
     scheduled the day of without my say so, and I had to cancel my plans because this was the only day that they had to do the interview. The manager was very rude and insulted me throughout the entire interview, calling me a baby, unwilling to work, and undedicated (all untrue, worked a steady job for 3 years). The insults never stopped and he only asked two questions the entire time which took 30 minutes give or take. Also said that because I'm a minor that he wouldn't give me more than 10 hours a week because of child labor laws (also untrue, worked a full time job from age 14)

    Overall:
    This was a highly negative experience and I wouldn't recommend applying if you are near Oxford, AL.
