    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Costco Wholesale.

    Interview Details

    Filled out an application online and they called back within three days. They scheduled an interview for the following week. The interview was in a room next to the break room. Two employees asked me typical situation questions. They then asked if I had time to do one last interview with the manager, so I agreed. She ultimately just asked about my life and what I like to do in my spare time, nothing more. I took a drug test on the spot and was told they would call if I got the job. They called two weeks later.

    Cart Pusher Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Costco Wholesale.

    Interview Details

    This is what you usually start out as(cart pusher), either this or at the bakery. for 11/hr I don't think there is time to complain.

    This was my first interview so in my ass it was tough. If you done them before it should be a piece of cake.

    They have a set of questions like 8 parts and 4 within each part. so they will pick one from each that is why you never know which one they will ask.
    I don't remember all of them but these are the ones they asked me.

    of course the classic "Tell me about yourself"

    "Name a time where you used a team to accomplish something."
    "Name time where you volunteered for something."
    "Can you tell me about the time you had to deal with a difficult customer?"
    "What is one mistake you had, and had to learn responsibility for it"
    "When it comes to safety, name a time when you knew you had to be safe about something and did it"

    Since it was cold, and it will be hot they will ask you if you think you can handle it. I think it is common sense what to say there.

    Interview Questions
    • They are all just think of a time and name a time..Like I said all Costco's are different so they might have a different set of questions.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was tough because they had 2 positions and 6 more interviewers. So make sure you do it all you can. I had an advantage since i am Bilingual.
