    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went in, asked for manager, told me to wait on a red bench. Afterwords, I was told to fill out an availability sheet and read over the job description and sign the paper. After looking at my availability, the manager said that he forgot to ask on the phone when he called before the interview for my availability. I couldn't work the times he was looking for and that was the end. Make sure if they call you they ask for your availability.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Filled out online application and was called a day or two later. I scheduled an interview but was not given the correct location (I assumed it was a different location but failed to verify) - I arrived at the wrong warehouse and as a result, was 10-15 minutes late for my first interview.

    I was interviewed by two women, one of whom asked all the interview questions. The other one looked disinterested and only took notes. The questions asked were your typical situational scripted interview questions. Needless to say, I was sent an email informing me that I wasn't offered the job.

    Interview Questions
    • None really. I think they were looking for someone with more confidence. I was a little nervous so that may have hurt my chances.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was short and simple. Took all of 10 minutes. I sat in a room while a floor manager and another store manager asked me questions like what I thought customer service was and what qualifications I had that would put me ahead of all the other potential hires. They also asked me about school and what I do as a hobby on weekends.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    The hiring and interview process was one of comfort in that the peolpe in which I was given my interview were easy to talk to, very mild mannered, smiled alot, and overall didn't made me feel un confortable during the interview at all. It was the first interview that I'd since my last job interview back in 2001.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult, yet most interesting, question they asked me was 'How did I know that the job I applyed for was for me and why did I apply other than looking for work'.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in June 2009.

    It is a 3 part interview process which they do in two sessions. They ask you questions such as why do you think your qualified to work there and what projects have you done that could help you out for the company in the future. They give you a drug test via mouth swab which they find out the results asap. Then they do a back round check which takes about a week to process.
