    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (San Diego, CA) in September 2012.

    half an hour, two managers. They made a comment about my shirt because it was sleeveless. They really care about how you present yourself and how much you smile. Their whole point is that people pay to shop there, so you have to treat them like so.

    • asked the general Q and A: what is your work ethic like, how do you deal with tempermental people, how well you work under stress. They mentioned that over 300+ people come in per hour and that I would have to deal with them all. They asked if I had ever been in a situation where someone wasn't pulling their part or was difficult to deal with and how I dealt with this. They asked about a situation where I didn't know what to do so how did I deal with that. They asked me what my biggest flaw is.   2 Answers
