    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.

    Interview

    Very easy and simple interview process. Mostly just small talk to make sure you were a friendly person. They asked very basic interview questions and graded me on a scale of 1-5. Hired almost anyone with prior serving experience and people who can work in a fast paced atmosphere.

    The manager who interviewed me was nice, but when she asked me what my availability was she just assumed that I couldn't work weekends and I didn't correct her because I didn't know how I was going to get there during the weekdays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cracker Barrel (Bloomington, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Very basic, they didn't seem very concerned with the interview or experience. Just wanted to know if you wanted to work. We've had a lot of turnover from this process. People get hired with no experience or want to work and they won't show up for shifts. Makes for a stressful shift for other servers.

    Interview

    I applied online 7 days before receiving an email asking me to call and schedule an interview. I called at 12:00 PM and I was told by the manager they don't take hiring calls between 11-1:30, told me to call him back, and hung up on me. I wasn't aware and if this was the case they should place it in the email.
