Just before Christmas I wrote a post titled Cracker Barrel in California?
A couple days ago several more articles appeared stating that Cracker Barrel was hiring an HR Manager to support stores in the Western states and that the position would be based in Sacramento.
Some of the articles included a link to an employment site, but it required a username and password to view the job description.
I decided to do my own search and started with the Cracker Barrel website. I did find an opening for a Field Manager of Human Resources, but the job was located in Phoenix, Arizona. All other listings on employment sites also listed Phoenix as the location for the job.
I finally decided to sign up for the employment site that was linked in the article, but stopped short of completion as it required a stiff membership fee. However, I was able to look at the job listing and found that the job had listings in multiple locations. Other California locations listed were Fresno, Modesto, Bakersfield, San Diego and Tahoe City. The listing was also marked filled as someone must have been hired.
I of course will probably receive e-mails from the site prompting me to finish my registration. I have already received a welcome e-mail. Good thing I didn’t provide them with anything more than my e-mail address 🙂
In the job listing at Cracker Barrel, which is very similar to ones at other sites like LinkedIn and Monster, the description states that the applicant will be based in Phoenix and work with stores in the Western states. The job posting mentions recently opened stores in Las Vegas and Idaho. It also mentions under-construction stores in Las Vegas and the Portland area which the applicant would work with.
With what I found it looks like there is a good possibility that we will soon hear news of Cracker Barrel locations in California.
Sacramento, Tahoe City, Modesto, Fresno, Bakersfield and San Diego look to be at the top of the list.
Which location would you like to see first?
From this list I would pick Modesto.
