    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Nashville, TN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    He asked me questions. I then answered those questions. He asked if I had questions. I asked him questions. He answered those questions. We shook hands. I left. These are extra words, because I need a 30 word minimum and apparently I'm more concise than this website would like me to be.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Altamonte Springs, FL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Altamonte Springs, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Due to a little incident on the way to my interview I got there like 15 minutes late, I called and let them know what what's going on, the interviewer was very understanding and told me not to worry about it. When I got there the interview lasted like five minutes, he just asked me a little about me and why Cracker Barrel, then he proceeded to talk to me about their philosophy and that even though I had not sales experience i had a lot of volunteerism and that's something they valued. One week later they asked through email for a background check, the company contacted me to confirm some other information, and about 5 days later I got an email telling me that I was part of their family and that somebody will call me for orientation, they also sent me how I was supposed to go dressed that day. That night I went and spent 40 dollars to get slacks, shirt and shoes . 4 days went by without hearing from them, so I called, the person who answered said that the girl that gives the orientation date couldn't go and that she'd there 2 days later, I called again, they told me she wasn't there neither and that I should call 2 days later because she'd be there. The third time I called, she was finally there. Guess what? She said there wasn't any records of me being interviewed or given an offer and that it was a "system problem". I told her who interviewed me and when, and that I could send the emails so she can see them, she wasn't interested in that and insisted I wasn't interviewed. I asked to talk to the person who did the interview and she said he was on "vacation" for a month and that she can't contact him. I used to admire CB so much, and honestly they lost me as a costumer, they're very unorganized and not very responsible. Also they fired a lady after about 20 years of working for them for not reason at all.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Montgomery, AL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I got a email for an Interview the same day I applied but later that night. Went into the interview that was very straight forward and pretty easy. They asked about my availability and about myself. Then at the end, he told that he wanted me to come in the next day for a second interview. I went in and met with a female manager, she asked about my available and went straight into telling me about the uniform, wage and what is expected. I was then told I got the job! Pretty much a 2-3 day process.
