    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Costco Wholesale in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    One interview. Initial process and communication were great. Easy to follow and talk to the lady on the phone. The interview itself was horrible. The questions asked had nothing to do with the job itself and when I arrived the interviewer said the job was only seasonal anyway.
