Server Interview

Anonymous Employee in Middletown, OH
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Middletown, OH) in May 2017.

Interview

I asked about a job after eating at Cracker Barrel and they gave me a card which referred me to an online application. I filled it out and submitted information for a background check and completed a type of personality test. I then was called about scheduling an interview, attended the interview, and was told that I would be accepted if my background check cleared. I waited a few days, and I was hired.

    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.

Got my back round check that same day and was able to easily fill it out in about 10 minutes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Hammond, LA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was emailed less than thirty minutes later asking me to call and schedule an interview. I was offered a same day interview later that afternoon. There were two short interviews and I was hired right away. The offer is tentative, so you must pass a background check in order to be actually hired. My background check came back clean 2 days later, and I was then able to have my orientation 3 days later.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Lake Oswego, OR) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Three minutes of, "Oh, Welcome to cracker Barrel" There wasn't much else. I had experience in the industry so I was put at the top of the pile. I had hoped it was because my resume was full of experience, but sadly they were just filling the 200 positions they started with.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Athens, TN) in February 2017.

    Interview

    They called me back the next week after applying to schedule an appointment for an interview. I showed up at the designated time, and they sat me down with one of the managers. The process wasn't too difficult at all. I was just open, honest, used impressive vocabulary, and had simple answers prepared. It was a breeze. A follow-up interview was scheduled, and that went better than the first.
