Interview Question

Cashier Assistant (Front End Assistant), Etc Interview Eugene, OR

During my first interview they requested, "Talk about

  yourself for three minutes." (and set an egg timer!) All interviews I had at Costco were heavily behavior-based. So they didn't ask questions so much as give prompts usually beginning with, "Tell me about a time when…" For example: when you were challenged, when you faced an ethical dilemma, and so on.

Interview Answer

The first time, I was really thrown off by the style of interview and had a hard time coming up with specific situations. I asked them to narrow it down more concretely a few times and that helped me a lot and didn't seem to make bother them, but I was very young at the time (and it was Christmas season), so that may have been part of it. I tried to prepare a list of specific situations I could talk about for subsequent interviews.
