    Cupcake Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sprinkles Cupcakes.

    Interview Details

    I originally submitted my resume and cover letter to jobs@sprinkles.com and received a call asking if I was still interested in the position, and if I would be available to come in for an interview. At the interview I filled out a "first interview quiz" that tested whether or not I could do some complex multiplication, remember the name of the Vice President and the names of 5 state capitals, etc. After the interview, which was pretty standard for an interview as far as reviewing my job history/duties/experience, my interviewer set up a "trial day" where I would come in and work for 2-3 hours with a trainer to get a feel for the job and see if I would be a good fit for the company. They ask that you wear a plain white or brown t-shirt, jeans, and closed toe shoes. Since I already knew a lot about the company's history and most of the flavors (I was a huge Sprinkles fan before I started) my trainer went over basic order taking procedures, boxing and sticker basics, and a rundown of all of the flavors they had that day. What they really look for is how you interact with the customers and how quickly you can catch on. By the end of the mini shift I felt pretty comfortable with everything I learned, and the manager scheduled me for an orientation (a few hours of filling out paperwork to make you an official employee!) and then I was hired :)

    Interview Questions
    • There wasn't really anything out of the ordinary...just prepare like you would for a normal job interview. Keep your answers relevant to the questions they ask and remember that this is a company that prides itself on an extremely high level of quality bordering on perfection. You need to be well-groomed and present yourself well.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I started at the base rate, but I know other associates with more food service experience than me (I had absolutely none) started a little higher.
