    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale in January 2016.

    Interview

    The job posting is posted on the board in the employee break room and/or online on their intranet. You are required to submit a letter of interest - I supplemented my application with a brief work history highlighting my responsibility and supervisory experience because I had only been at my current store for 3 months.

    Both times I was interviewed, they pulled me in while I was working on my normal shift. They don't tell you when it will happen so always be prepared. My first interview didn't go too well because I wasn't ready to be pulled in and gather my thoughts. For my 2nd interview, very day after I applied, I had a cheat sheet of notes I would review on breaks/lunches.

    They started the interview with the assistant store manager, and pulled in the front end manager to join. The assistant manager took the notes, asked follow up questions, etc. They will ask you behavior questions (conflict resolution, etc.) and about COSTCO as a company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (Sacramento, CA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    ALL questions in ALL interviews with Costco are event and experience based. You MUST cite a specific instance where you acted a certain way. Costco is looking for actual behavior, not what you "think" you would do in a situation. Often, answering the question with a hypothetical response is an instant termination of the interview. Typical interviews consist of 3-5 questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Costco Wholesale (Seattle, WA) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Sometimes, interviewing over the phone doesn't show your true abilities. The best way to interview is in person and to have glowing reviews from your former employer because they WILL call and they WILL ask a lot of questions. I actually didn't have to do much during the interview process because my former manager said nothing but good things about me, but had no way of keeping me because they couldn't afford another supervisor.
