    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (Issaquah, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Operation head leads the interview, very casual and down to earth atmosphere. Prepare a list of question before you go there, as they care very much about your determination and passion in the Costco culture.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (Issaquah, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    They rescheduled my interview mere hours before it was scheduled, so it wasn't surprising that I missed the email that went out. My phone doesn't bother notifying me on emails sent to the junk folder. This led to a rather awkward situation with me sitting in the lobby for a half hour before someone comes out to give me a quintessential interview whereby the interviewer wasn't prepared. Still, I answered a few questions before I left. The HR recruiter then re-scheduled a time to re-do the interview. A few days later, I got another email saying they were going a different direction because they were looking for someone who had a longer term outlook, and asked me if I was really interested in a short term contract. Huh? Did the interviewer mix up his notes and confuse me with someone else? I was with my last company for nearly 10 years. On the surface, I was a spot on match for the position. Now I think I dodged a bullet given how the interview process worked.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (Issaquah, WA).

    Interview

    This was a fairly long process. Costco is not one to move quickly at least in this instance they weren't. I contacted them in late September directly about a job I saw on their website. Recruiter got back to me a couple of days later. Now the slow down... Took a couple of weeks to schedule a technical interview and then a couple of weeks to schedule an onsite interview with the hiring manager. Technical interview was not your standard stand in front of the white board answering programming questions, but was more of a technical conversation which I liked because doing the dog and pony show on a whiteboard is getting old. Then I had the interview with the hiring manager and his manager, which again was a conversation. This interview was a mix of technical and behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions like how did you handle a difficult employee. How do you handle stress. Talk about a project you recently worked on... that type of stuff.   Answer Question
