The online Cracker Barrel application is very short and simple. From start to finish, it should take you about 20 minutes to complete (assuming you already have your resume prepared).
Note: For the sake of this application guide, we applied for a restaurant manager job. Your application experience may vary a little bit depending on the position you’re applying for.
Before you can apply for a Cracker Barrel job, you will need to create an account on their hiring website. To create an account, you will need to provide your name, email address, a username, a password, and an answer to a security question.
At the start of the application, you will have an opportunity to upload your resume. And while uploading a resume is not required (you can manually enter all of your information if you prefer), we highly recommend providing one. A well-written resume is much more effective than a simple list of your employment history and education.
At this point in the application, you will need to provide the following information: Your name, phone number, email address, home address, employment history, references, education, skills, and languages spoken. We recommend taking a little bit of time to organize all of the information you will need before you begin the application the process. Not only will this ensure that you have everything you need to complete the application, but it will keep you from sending time hunting for something (and your application timing out while you do so).
When you submit your application to Cracker Barrel, you are consenting to a pre-employment background check. Any employment offer that you receive is contingent upon passing this background check.
Cracker Barrel does not provide automatic application updates. If you have already applied for a job at Cracker Barrel and would like to know if you’re still being considered, you will need to contact the hiring manager.
Cracker Barrel is an equal opportunity employer.
