    Interview

    Two interviews, one with mid level manger and then general manger. Fairly innocuous interview. If you have experience you can slightly negotiate for your starting salary.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Statesboro, GA) in February 2011.

    Interview

    Met with an associate manager for initial review (mostly personality type questions) and then the general manager for the final interview which was more detailed and came with more job specific questions to see if my experience was what they were looking for. Then a quick view of the store as it was brand new and received my offer after the walk around.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Fort Mill, SC) in June 2011.

    Interview

    Talked to kitchen supervisor one day for about 10 minutes. He told me to come back a few days later and talk to the General Manager. Talked to her for about 15 minutes. Had to wait a couple more days for my background check to come back. When it did I was offered the job. Management is very nice and upbeat. They also know what they are doing. You go through a training program before you actually start your job. It is pretty thorough, and honestly I have never gone through anything like it for a kitchen position. But you learn a lot in training. You take tests on the computer, there is a lot of reading about the business, what you are expected to do, OSHA MSDS sheets, menu items and how to plate up. I've completed 15 hours of only training so far and I have only worked for three days. And I am not finished with my computer part. Overall though it seems like decent job (since I haven't actually started cooking yet).

    Negotiation

    Depending on what position you apply for, there is a maximum pay rate to start out at. You can get a raise in 30 days. Another raise is available 60 days after that. Another raise is available after 6 months. The economy is poor right now, and this is a better job than most right now that pay $8.50 per hour.
