Application Details

I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery.

Interview Details

The hiring and interview process is typically done through a group interview, unless you previously worked for cold stone before. As long as you read through these posts, you have nothing to be nervous for. They want to see you interacting with other potential crew members, it's a test of how well you interact with others, and if you are having fun they will notice and like that.

    I applied online – interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery.

    Interview Details

    I happened to get called in to interview at 2 different Cold Stone locations. Each location asked similar questions.

    First Location: There were probably 30 applicants attending the group interview and the session was more like an American Idol audition; there were rounds with eliminations. We had to get up in front of the whole group and say jokes, say something interesting about ourselves, and show our best talents. During each round, we were judged by the franchise owner and current employees.

    I was not aware of any of this while others were probably given a heads up by friends and thus were more prepared; some brought instruments with them. You do not have to bring a prop to get past this round If you had personality and were outgoing, you passed.

    The last round was based on how well you can sell a product. You are given a flavor and you have to sell it to the "customer" who was a current employee.

    Second Location: There were only 4 of us being interviewed. Similar questions, but not in an audition format. We were interviewed by the two managers for that location.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery.

    Interview Details

    They called this large group interview an "audition," where we each got up and said something about ourselves, then sang one of their songs, made up a song in small groups, then sang one on your own. Super easy interview as long as you don't have stage fright and can be outspoken. Also helps to know current employees.

    I applied online – interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online heard back in 2 days about an interview. Went in. Not much of an interview. Was given papers to fill out. I was told I would be opening the store, no supervision. That scared me, so I declined in the end. Not enough training, pay, and too much responsibility and the possibility to have to cover someone else's shift and close. No thanks. Interviewer was super nice though.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online but they didn't get back to me for a while so I walked in store and they told me to apply online. Again. So I did and they called me back for a group interview about 1.5 weeks later. I stupidly showed up in pants and a t-shirt and majority of the other candidates were dressed in sharp business attire. There were about 21 of us all together, however, 2 people dropped out when they told us to sing a 15-20 second song. The audition wasn't personalized, they gave us a number and told us to say one interesting thing about ourselves and where we went to school. Then they put us into groups and we had to come up with a skit. They said they would call us in a week. I haven't received a call yet but it's been exactly a week today.

    I applied online – interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and a month later I got an email about Cold Stone auditions. I got there and there were about 70 people auditioning for 5-7 jobs. The audition was from 10-1 and was outside (during summer in Florida… eek!). I suggest you bring water unless you are certain the audition will be held inside. The audition consisted of three stages, a interview, singing a Cold Stone song, and then the group skit. The interview is when you stood up in front of everyone else auditioning, and the manager would ask you about 3 questions. Age, Why do you want to work for us, etc. Then, they employees handed out a paper with a few songs on it. You picked one, and they would call you up one by one to sing for them. Lastly, there was a group skit. You were put in a group with 15 minutes to come up with a skit/song for Cold Stone and then perform it in front of everyone. I don't know what they were looking for, but I guess its not fun, outgoing, and energetic.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I was told to come in for an interview 4 days later. I was interviewed individually and it went by pretty quickly. The questions that were asked were pretty basic and straight forward like...(Are you good with people? Do you think you could manage customers? etc.) Their main focus was that more people were needed to work on weekend nights which I was fine with doing. To wrap it all up, I was given the information for the online training program and test if which I got an 80 or higher on, I would be contacted for physical training. Although I completed the test, I have yet to get a notice from the manager about the next step.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, got a call the next day from the manager, interviewed the day after that and was called in to start working that same week. The interview questions were way too easy. Anyone with knowledge of what a manager is looking for would have been able to B/S the questions so easy, otherwise all questions were pretty standard.
