    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got called about 2 days later for an interview. On the day of, I was interviewed by 2 managers. The questions were pretty typical. Nothing too hard. Afterwards they told me they would give me a call if I made it to the third interview ( this interview counted as 2 since 2 managers were present) and if not, they would send me a letter in the mail saying I didn't make the cut. They called about 3 weeks later for the third interview with a higher up manager. The third interview was not really an interview but more of explaining to me what it's like working as a seasonal employee. They then do the swab drug test and background test and once you pass those you're good.
