    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.

    Positive Experience
    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.
