Research the Company
During Haagen-Dazs interviews, the ice cream chain inquires about what applicants already know about the company. Specific interview questions range from, "What can you tell me about Haagen-Dazs?" to, "Why do you want to work here?" The typical hiring session takes about 15 minutes and includes the above questions and other interrogations into work history, personal interests, and ability to carry out responsibilities of the position desired. Applicants should conduct considerable research on the company prior to participating in the interview process. Though brief and often informal, the interview process closely examines applicant knowledge of services provided and overall history of the ice cream chain.
Prepare for Certain Questions
Prospective Haagen-Dazs employees might also encounter off-topic interview questions during the hiring process. Managerial staff may ask about favorite flavors of ice cream, favorite movies, or other impersonal but inquisitive and personality revealing interview topics. Provide genuine answers to interview questions at all times. Honesty and well-rounded individuals most often receive job offers over other candidates. The hiring process generally concludes without a formal offer of employment. Successful applicants typically wait up to a week to hear back from the presiding hiring managers regarding final deliberations.
