    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Sprinkles Cupcakes (Beverly Hills, CA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume and cover letter through a Craigslist post. The HR person had a phone interview with me and if she thought you were a good candidate there was an in-person interview with HR and/or the general manager. After the in-person interview there was a 2 hour trial day to see if you worked well with others and got the jist of working in the front of the house.

    Fairly quick and easy interview. There was a personality profile paper to fill out which had some interesting questions like to name states and their capital cities. The entire thing took a few days between applying and being interviewed. Offered a position but I didn't like the hours, they told me they had other positions open but not baking. I told them no.

    Bakery Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sprinkles Cupcakes.

    Interview

    It was a very short interview, about 10-15 minutes. The manager simply asked the questions straight from the paper he was looking at and wrote down my answers and that was about it. Very awkward and not personal at all.

    Manager In Training Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Sprinkles Cupcakes (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter, despite my skepticism, everything with her worked out great. I had an initial interview with her to see if I was right for a job, then she disclosed the company she was recruiting for, Sprinkles. She said I would be interviewing for a job with the manager in training program. After a little communication issues with the time for a phone interview I was interviewed by a woman in the HR department at Sprinkle (10 min) then we arranged a time for me to come into the office and have a face to face interview. One week later I was driving into Los Angeles and did a 45 min interview and answered pretty basic questions. I was emailed after by my recruiter ask what times I would be available to come in for an On the Job Education Experience. Which was a 4 hr shift where I got to show off my skills and learn more about how the store works (Sprinkles B.H.) All the employees and managers were super friendly and always kept me busy.

    The last leg: I am now waiting for another interview and possibly a offer. Its been about a month since I got the email from the recruiter.
