    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Montgomery, AL).

    Interview

    It was lengthy and in depth. A book full of scenarios and questions plus a reading on the job description to see if you would like the position. It's a little much in my opinion for an hourly restaurant job. Very corporate and many rules apply

    Server Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bremen, GA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Bremen, GA).

    Interview

    I had two interviews. The first one I waited 40 minutes then the manager approached me and told me he was busy and I would just have to come back. So I came back a week later and waited an hour . I interviewed with the general Manger, who pretended he wasn't the manager and changed his story quite a few times. He didn't ask me any interview questions, he just asked me why I couldn't work mornings and where I went to school. He then said he'll call me in a few days and when I reached to shake his hand, he walked off. Both managers were horribly rude, it wasn't a good experience at all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Davenport, FL).

    Interview

    I applied inside, filled out the application, and had my first interview that day. Told me the time and date of the second interview and I went home. Pretty successful interview.

    The second interview was not so much. The manager that approached me, after 25 minutes of waiting, was very unprepared. Ran back and forth into the office three times. Didn't know what questions to ask, what position I was applying for, or if it was my first or second interview. After that was over, said I was hired and they would call that day and let me know when orientation was.

    I ended calling them to ask about orientation. They seemed confused, as if they didn't know who I was, and then told me the time of orientation. Two days later, the training manager calls me and tells me all about orientation. The lack of communication is astonishing.

    I later found out that the manager that hired me was not the hiring manager. I didn't meet the hiring manager until I was already hired. No wonder they were so confused.

    My firat interview with the store manager went great. He set me up for a second interview with the general manager.
