I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in June 2013.

Interview Details – The Interview process wasn't really hard. the manager interviewed me and didn't even ask me questions. He just told me that I'm hired and I would start the following week. Very unprofessional and didn't really give me information on what to do my job. It was fun to work with my co-workers but they don't really teach you that well at all. Learn everything by yourself

Shift Leader Interview

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery in August 2011.

Interview Details – If you are a part time student, which most of their workers are, your best bet would be to apply in person or go to one of their group interview sessions. Applying online will most likely get you nowhere or you won't ever get a phone call back.

Interview Question – They will make you sing a song since they sing for tips.   View Answer

Shift Leader Interview

Shift Leader

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed 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.

Seal Beach, CA

I applied in-person and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Cold Stone Creamery.

Interview Details – I walked into the store and asked for an application because I never heard anything at the other locations I applied to online. The application was very straightforward. Asked for previous experience, references, and some basic math questions (add, subtract, etc...). I called a day or so after I applied and was scheduled for an interview. It was very straightforward and I got hired on the spot.

Interview Question – My interview was very straightforward and fast, but most cold stone employees are hired through a group interview process and you have to display a talent on the spot in front of everyone.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation phase
