Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (League City, TX) in December 2016.

Interview

I applied online and received an email about coming to an interview. That was on a weekend and my interview was scheduled on a Monday. I went for an interview and was offered a job contingent upon a background check. The background check was done and I passed and was sent a "welcome to the people pleasing team" email. It said the store would be contacting me about orientation if they had not already. I went out and bought clothes and shoes for the uniform. I was very excited about the job. The store never contacted me. I called them three times and was told to call back at a different time, which I did. The last time I was put on hold for an hour and no one got back on the phone. I finally gave up.

    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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Orangeburg, SC) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They emailed me and instructed me to call in to schedule an interview. I scheduled for Monday at 2 P.M . The interview was easy , it was more of a conversation than an interview. I didn't get hired due to my shyness. If you really want this job you must smile CONSTANTLY, don't break eye contact and talk energetically ( don't seem shy ) .. But it was very easygoing.
