    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.

    Application Details

    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.

    Application Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in May 2014.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Cold Stone Creamery.

    Interview Details

    As far as my interview, it was not normal. I just kind of walked in and got the job. Didn't really have an interview since they needed people, bad. So I lucked out. As far as while I was there under a different manager. He didn't know what he was doing and as long as you smiled and said you work well with people. You're a shoe in.
