Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale in August 2015.

Interview

New store opening, so it was more of a bulk interview process over a few days. I applied online and was called the next day to set up a time to come in. I interviewed 2 days later, first with two employees (not sure of job titles). We talked about previous work history, and the basic interview questions, maybe 6-10 in total. I 'passed' this round and next met with the Warehouse Manager. This was more informal and was really a get-to-know-you interview. We talked availability and where I saw myself within the company in the future. Altogether a very pleasant experience. I was offered the position the same day, and I'm excited to work for this company!

    I was shocked by the crazy questions ask that had nothing to do with my job? The two so called managers couldn't read well and I found myself correcting them.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were busy with a customer and a line started forming how would you handle that and why? How about some common sense! Is what I said inside. First you greet each person and let them know you will get to them soon. This is what you do because you want that customer to have a positive visit.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to jump my part time work pay up because of my background.
