    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel in September 2010.

    Interview

    I had to take a test that gave all different types of scenarios like figuring profit & loss and overhead and similar. I thought the test was kind of ridiculous as when hiring a manager you should be more concerned about the person being a good fit; you can teach anyone to read a spread sheet. The interviewer wasn't someone I warmed to right away which is important to me in choosing a new job. I didn't feel his questions really pertained to the job I was interviewing for.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about partnering with the restaurant side and clearing tables, etc.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    I think I'd hate working at cracker barrel. I mostly did it for the interview experience and practice.
