THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIAL…Today is International Labor Day, it is a day celebrated everywhere and by most everyone except here in the United States.
It is a day to celebrate our collective labor but, it is also a day for reflection – a day to stop and take survey of where we and our fellow workers are.
If you are still reading the Used Job Shack, it is fair to assume that the past year has been more a time of struggle and a lack of steady labor.
The past year has been a year of slippage for not only those left behind by a seemingly jobless recovery of the nation’s economy but, for all those who are called greedy for asking for a living wage.

    • THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIAL… Today is International Labor Day, it is a day celebrated everywhere and by most everyone except here in the United States. It is a day to celebrate our collective labor but, it is also a day for reflection – a day to stop and take survey of where we and our fellow workers are. If you are still reading the Used Job Shack, it is fair to assume that the past year has been more a time of struggle and a lack of steady labor. The past year has been a year of slipage for not only those left behind by a seemingly jobless recovery of the nation’s economy but, for all those who are called greedy for asking for a living wage. 1 MAY 2014 – THE DAY YOU GOT HIRED!
    • Where, Oh, Where Can Minimum Wage Earners Afford to Rent a One-Bedroom Apartment? The 'housing wage' puts a modest place beyond a $7.25-an- hour salary in every county in America. Is the rent too darn high? If you’re an American worker earning minimum wage, the price of a modest one-bedroom apartment is beyond your reach in every single county across the nation. According to the National Low Income Housing Coalition, the cost of renting an average one-bedroom apartment exceeds the national minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. The coalition determined this by crunching data from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to create a “housing wage.” That housing wage is how much someone working 40 hours per week over 52 weeks would have to earn to afford fair market rent in a community. What does a modest one-bedroom apartment look like? The coalition’s not talking living in a pricey Manhattan penthouse with views of Central Park, nor does it mean squalid, roach- and rat-infested tenement housing that no one should be forced to call home. Instead, think about a place that’s basic (no swimming pool or building gym) but decent. Of course, some states and local municipalities have minimum wages that are higher than the federal minimum. San Francisco has one of the highest minimum wages in the country, $10.55 per hour. Compared to the federal minimum, that seems downright generous. Most experts advise against putting more than 30 percent of your paycheck toward housing costs. But if you’re a fast-food worker living in San Francisco, even if you’re sending your entire paycheck to your landlord, you still can’t afford a decent one-bedroom. You’d need to earn a whopping $29.83 an hour—approximately $62,000 per year—to afford a basic one-bedroom apartment.
    • The result is that Bay Area workers are moving to inland counties where housing is less expensive. Of course, that leads to move time spent commuting to work and more CO2 emissions. The other option? Shacking up with roommates. Four young people, all service- industry workers, live in a one-bedroom apartment in my building in Los Angeles. The dining room has a mattress on the floor, the living room has two futons, and one person sleeps in the bedroom. They do that because you’d have to earn $20.83 per hour to afford an average market-rate one-bedroom in L.A. County. Head across the country to Osceola County, Fla., the home of Disney World, and you’ll see service workers sleeping in cheap motels—all because of the same unaffordable housing problem. Is an $11.50-an-Hour Minimum Wage Coming to a City Near You? Washington, D.C., living-wage victory could provide a national road map for labor activists. Our nation's capital made international news this week when local lawmakers passed the most generous living-wage bill in the United States, which means workers in the District of Columbia will earn a minimum wage of $11.50 per hour by 2016. Wisely, activists and local politicians partnered with neighboring Montgomery and Prince George's counties in Maryland to raise their minimum wage to $11.50 by the year 2017. The move guarantees that businesses looking to save on labor costs won’t be able to skirt the district’s wage laws by fleeing to the suburbs. This movement at the local [level] is hugely important to win real concrete policy change nationally,” she tells TakePart. “It’s changing the conversation in D.C. and building momentum for what’s possible at a federal level. It shows the president and national legislators that this effort has grassroots political support.” http://www.takepart.com/article/2013/12/19/1150-hourly-minimum-wage-coming- city-near-you
    • WHY YOU SHOULD SHOP AND (MAYBE) WORK AT COSTCO! Not only does Jim Sinegal and Costco’s Management Team say this but, they have put the corporate wealth into being a better employer and the loyalty that have establish with paying a living wage has made them a one of the most successful companies in the world.
    • Why Wal-Mart Will Never Pay Like Costco The average American cashier makes $20,230 a year, a salary that in a single-earner household would leave a family of four living under the poverty line. But if he works the cash registers at QuikTrip, it's an entirely different story. The convenience-store and gas-station chain offers entry-level employees an annual salary of around $40,000, plus benefits. Those high wages didn't stop QuikTrip from prospering in a hostile economic climate. Many employers believe that one of the best ways to raise their profit margin is to cut labor costs. But companies like QuikTrip, the grocery-store chain Trader Joe's, and Costco Wholesale are proving that the decision to offer low wages is a choice, not an economic necessity. All three are low-cost retailers, a sector that is traditionally known for relying on part-time, low-paid employees. Yet these companies have all found that the act of valuing workers can pay off in the form of increased sales and productivity. ===================================================================== COSTCO SEEMS TO BE INVESTING SOME OF THOSE PROFITS BACK INTO ITS EMPLOYEES The recession has been good for companies that targeted budget-minded customers. Sales at Costco (COST, Fortune 500) have grown an average of 13% annually since 2009, while profits have risen 15%. Its stock price has more than doubled since 2009. During the same period, discount retailer Wal-Mart's sales grew an average of 4.5% each year, profits rose 7%, and its stock price increased 70%. Cesar Martinez, a 37-year-old fork lift operator, has worked at a Costco in North California for 19 years. He makes $22.82 an hour, gets health benefits and a pension plan. He manages to save, and doesn't worry about hospital bills for his daughter, who suffers from asthma. "That's the reason why I've been here for so long," he said. "The company gives you a decent wage and treats you with respect and takes care of you. That's why we all give 100%." Research shows that it pays to pay employees well, because satisfied workers are more productive and motivated, according to MIT Sloan School of Management professor Zeynep Ton, who focuses on operations management.
    • "How many times have you gone to a store, and the shelves are empty or the checkout line is too long, or employees are rude?" she said. "At Costco, you see a huge line that disappears in minutes." The productivity translates into sales, she said. According to Ton's research, sales per employee at Costco were almost double those at Sam's Club, its direct warehouse competitor owned by Wal-Mart. Costco CEO: RAISE THE MINIMUM WAGE TO MORE THAN $10 PER HOUR President Barack Obama wants to raise the federal minimum wage to $9 per hour. And the CEO of one of America's largest retailers says such a move would be good for workers and businesses alike. In fact, he says raise it even more. On Tuesday, Costco CEO and President Craig Jelinek came out in support of the Fair Minimum Wage Act of 2013, which aims to raise the federal minimum wage to $10.10 per hour, and then adjust it after that for inflation. "At Costco, we know that paying employees good wages makes good sense for business," Jelinek said in a statement. "We pay a starting hourly wage of $11.50 in all states where we do business, and we are still able to keep our overhead costs low." "An important reason for the success of Costco’s business model is the attraction and retention of great employees," Jelinek added. "Instead of minimizing wages, we know it's a lot more profitable in the long term to minimize employee turnover and maximize employee productivity, commitment and loyalty. We support efforts to increase the federal minimum wage." Costco has a reputation for paying its employees above market rate, with the typical worker earning around $45,000 in 2011, according to Fortune. Walmart-owned Sam's Club, in contrast, pays its sales associates an average of $17,486 per year.
    • Costco also provides health insurance to a significantly larger percentage of its workers than does Walmart, the Harvard Business Review reported in 2006. Jelinek's predecessor, Costco founder Jim Sinegal, has also expressed support for raising the federal minimum wage in the past. "The more people make, the better lives they're going to have and the better consumers they're going to be," Sinegal told the Washington Post in 2007. "It's going to provide better jobs and better wages." Not all business leaders agree with Jelinek about the minimum wage. Subway CEO Fred Deluca, for one, told CNBC last week that raising the minimum wage is "a bad idea" that "will cause franchisees to raise prices." About three in four Americans support raising the minimum wage, according to a recent poll. =================================================================== Costco application online James Sinegal and Jeffery Brotman opened the first Costco Warehouse in 1983. Located in Seattle Washington, the pair had come from a long line of wholesale and retail. Sinegal had worked in wholesale for both FedMart and Price Club, and while Brotman was a lawyer his family had been in retail for years. The company operates on a membership bases similar to that of Sam’s Club. Customers pay a yearly fee to shop there but get to take advantage of wholesale pricing.
    • Today Costco is the largest membership warehouse club chain in the United States with over 140,000 employees and 584 stores worldwide. They also have around 55 million members worldwide. JOB OPENINGS AT COSTCO: Because this is a warehouse setting there are a lot of opportunities when it comes to employment. You work in the store you can work as a cashier, which means you’ll ring customers out. You may also have to assist customers in finding certain items. You will need to be meticulous so that you are certain that your drawer balances at the end of the day. Bakery workers are also required. Since they have a full service bakery they need bakers, wrappers, cake decorators and sanitation assistants. Deli servers and food court service assistants are also needed. Because they are a membership based business membership assistant, outside marketer, and membership refund cashier are all areas in which you can distinguish yourself. In most of these jobs you’ll be working with customers to begin, renew, or cancel memberships as well as solicit new memberships. As an employee at Costco you’ll be able to take advantage of many of their benefits. Full time employees are eligible for health, dental, pharmacy, vision, 401(k), dependent care, voluntary shorter disability, long term disability, life, stock purchase, and long term care insurance.

    • From the desk of Duke Pat-Menot PhD. WHERE TO START? THE ON-LINE JOB APPLICATION Many things have changed in recent years about getting a job, and now companies and businesses are using online job applications instead of a paper one. While it has streamlined the process a lot, it has also taken away from the more personal satisfaction with seeing someone face to face. While some of the procedures are the same, there are many other differences. Costco - Paradise Valley Mall: Anchor Forklift Driver - Receiving Clerk – Stocker - Cashier Location: PHOENIX, AZ (PARADISE VALLEY - 4570 E CACTUS ROAD) – ================================================================ Various internet sites may link to this page claiming this is an open position. While this position is representative of a job at Costco Wholesale, it does not represent an actual job opening. ================================================================= TIPSTER: The upside is that they pay really good money…up to $20/HR. The downside is that you are asked to spend 1-2 hours to fill out an application without knowing if there is a job or not. If the hope of $20/HR. floats in your head, then, spend the time to do the application. Here is what we would suggest. Go up to the store and do some investigating (snooping). Walk around and start conversations with the staff and then ask if they are hiring. Now go able online download/copy the full job description for the position and take the skills that we have taught you to tear it apart, to dissect it for the required skills and abilities and use that information to rewrite each of your job descriptions AND now go fill out the application. NOTE: Some people have had a hard time getting in to the store without a Costco’s Card. Here is the easy way! If asked for a card (I have never been unless I wanted to buy something) just say that you would like to apply for one. They will let you through to go to the customer service desk. After you are in you can go anywhere in the store with no trouble (just can’t buy anything).
    • APPLY FOR JOBS ONLINE AND STAY FOCUSED ON YOUR GOALS! http://shop.costco.com/About/Costco-Employment Merchandising is the lifeblood of Costco, and our business is centered on our warehouse operations. Most employees begin their careers in the warehouse setting, becoming experts in Costco merchandising and operations. If you are an ambitious, energetic person who enjoys a fast-paced team environment laced with challenges and opportunities, you've come to the right place. Our successful employees are service-oriented people with integrity and commitment toward a common goal of excellence in every area of their personal and business lives. Read on to discover how to pursue employment opportunities with us. Costco offers great jobs, great pay, great benefits and a great place to work. We have 6 locations in PHOENIX, Arizona: • PHOENIX (BUSINESS CENTER - 3801 N 33RD AVENUE) • PHOENIX (CAVE CREEK - 2450 E. BEARDSLEY RD.) • PHOENIX (CHRIS TOWN - 1646 W MONTEBELLO) • PHOENIX (N PHOENIX - 19001 N 27TH AVENUE) • PHOENIX (PARADISE VALLEY - 4570 E CACTUS ROAD) • PHOENIX (THOMAS ROAD - 4502 EAST OAK STREET) GETTING A JOB HERE IS NOT FOR THE LAZY APPLICANT… Most people who apply at Costco will NEVER hear from the regarding their application. In fact 8 out of 10 will not get an interview and from there 1 person MAY get an offer. WOW! That’s tuff!
    • It is impossible to get a job there right? It is impossible ONLY if you don’t know the secret(s) to getting your application seen and thus becoming one of the two that actually get considered. This is not for the faint hearted, those who have (be nice) lazy job seeking skills or those who totally believe that their “KILLER RESUME” is magical and it is so good that it can open any door or get them any job…these will be some of those 8 out of ten applicants who don’t get interviewed and the surely won’t be the one hired. Is it that hard? No…but, you must be willing to set-a-side that killer resume and start from scratch. First thing you need to know is… RULE # FOUR ONLET (EXPERIENCE VS. SKILLS): WITH MANY LARGE COMPANIES…it is important that you know that for the first two levels of review a real person does not see your application because the company’s computer system scans your application. The computer is a very bright 6 year old…very smart but, not a lick of logic. Getting selected for an interview is very difficult when the company screens your application with the computer and you do not have the cheat sheet (full job description). OK…YEA! We are talking (in general) about positions that require little or no experience…So why is it difficult? Why should you be worried? Because you just confused experience with skills. You are correct that the positions do not require experience but they do (many times) require a lot of skills. (See the job below):

Didn’t EVERY job you EVER have require that you do many of these things? • How many of you have these skills and abilities encoded into your “KILLER RESUME?” • How many of you DO NOT have all of these things incorporated into your resume and/or (especially) your application because (guess what?) they didn’t get to see your “KILLER RESUME” and the computer didn’t accept it instead of the application? • How many of you cut-n-pasted your killer resume into the application because it is “sooo good?” • STILL WONDER WHY YOU DIDN’T GET CALLED FOR AN INTERVIEW? • WANT TO CHANGE THIS TREND?
    • ANALYSIS This job requires little experience but (as you can see) requires a ton of ability and/or skills. Seems impossible? Not really! Have you ever run a cash register (Point of sale or POS System) ever? Did I ask how many times? No! All registers operate in the small basic way but, every company develops their own custom system that will require what? TRAINING? Yes, every company will train you as long as you have the core (basic) skills. Can you count? Can you handle cash? So, are you qualified? Look through those customer service skills. Is there anything that you didn’t do (if you worked or were around people at all) or that isn’t part of every job? The only deal maker or breaker here is: Have/be obtaining a HS/GED and do Ten Key. Ten Key for those who don’t know what that is. It is using a calculator, a computer or a ledger to enter numbers? TIPSTER: Did I ask you how many times that you did these things? Did I ask if that was the primary focus of the job? Did I ask for a breakdown of how much of your day was spent doing these? THE ANSWER TO EACH IS NO. The computer will be scanning your application for these words. The more times that the computer finds these words/phrases, the better your chances of getting an interview. So are these words in your job description(s)? SO ALWAYS USE THE FULL JOB DESCRIPTIONS: • READ THEM SEVERAL TIMES…TEAR THEM APART. • PULL OUT ALL OF THE REQUIRED SKILLS AND THEN, GO THROUGH EACH OF YOUR JOBS AND MATCH UP WHAT THEY NEED AND WHAT YOU HAVE DONE… • THAT’S ONLY IF YOU REALLY WANT THIS JOB? EXAMPLE: Here is the same person, the same job but, one used their “KILLER RESUME” to fill in the blanks and the other one used our system applying for the position listed above. RESUME # 1 “I KNOW BETTER!” Teacher, ____Unified School District, ____, AZ Assigned to teach a full range of daily classes (with an average class size of 46+ students) that ranged from 8th grade Geography to 11th grade Business English.
    • Each subject required a great deal of planning, prep work and in record keeping and related paperwork to include reporting to the School District and to the Federal Government in the way of the Student Free Lunch Program. Also ran the school’s concession stand at school events. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- RESUME # 2 “I USED THE USED JOB SHACK FORMULA!” Teacher & Concession Stand Operator As a teacher at ______ School, I was trained to successfully operate the school’s concession stand and it required the ability to efficiently and accurately processing of all food orders for school members. Maintained courteous school member service at all times. Operating the concession stand meant that there be an unwavering commitment to providing prompt and courteous service while obtaining student membership cards or in determining the student member’s packing preferences. From both training and experience, was able to provide prompt and articulated information, both verbally and/or in writing receipts. Developed an excellent ability to actively listen to customers, employees, school members, and managers and have a proven recognition for being able to take appropriate action(s) as were necessary. Always, exhibited a professional demeanour toward others and was well praised (by the school) for unselfishly service to others, assisting members or employees in a proactive means of reacting quickly and appropriately to identifying problems, find solutions, and make sound decisions to resolve the situation. Maintained a solid commitment to personal, professional honesty, integrity, and was always able to maintain a high level of efficiency and accuracy. Always strived to remain well-organized and be able to prioritize while adhering to deadlines but, working independently with minimal supervision from the school. Accepts responsibility for choices and decisions made in regards to the daily operation of the concession stand. Cooperated with a variety of local personalities and/or individuals from the school and parent support groups while adjusted positively to any required change in direction or assignment by the school. Continually made an effort to demonstrate a daily commitment to do more than one task during a work shift. Strived to expand upon the proven ability to comply with new programs, methods, practices, and procedures to enhance sales volume and the operations of the concession stand.
    • Trained to operate a commercial point of sale (POS) cash register to enter transactions into the register. Received accurate payment - made change - processes checks, credit and debit charges. Transferred and accurately scanned merchandise - collected payment and made change when necessary. Handled all front end opening and closing tasks. Recorded the sale of items to the register with the option 10-key pad (10 Key SKILL 5,000 KPM) or more commonly with a barcode scanner. Monitored the accurate scanning of all merchandise. Requested Supervisor (Principal) verification for high-ticket, BOB, or non- transfer items.

Personally responsible for conducted a count of the register in the opening and closing duties maintained and collecting registration paperwork… Required to follow proper safety procedures, standards and responsible for cleaning the Front End area while adhering to all (OSHA) safety and security procedures. ==================================================================== SEE THE DIFFERENCE…SAME PERSON…SAME SKILLS… ONE APPLICATION WILL BE TOLD THEY DO NOT QUALIFY… ONE APPLICATION WILL GET THE JOB… DO YOU SEE WHY? ============================================================= TIPSTER: The reason you need to do this is because a computer will scan your application to see if you have the required skills. The computer does not reason nor does it understand that what you did was the same thing – unless you tell it. The computer is like a six year old (bright but stupid in using logic). You need to be using the company’s key words and even the way they phrased the requirements. Only people who have done this will be selected by the computer to be reviewed by a real person. Don’t be like the computer, use common sense in filling out the application correctly.
    • APPLICATION COMMON SENSE: • Most required skills will be general in nature. • Do not over complicate this! Customer Service is Customer Service if I am in retail or if I am an auto mechanic. REALLY! What is Customer Service? Isn’t
    • it making sure that you customer has what they need and that they are happy with that? SEEZ! • Operating a cash register at the repair shop is no different than at any other store. Realize that if you have the basic operation down pat then you are good to go – as every store has a different system on which they will need to train you…if you have the basics. • They are looking for skills and your ability to perform certain duties. They are not asking you how many times you actually did something but, rather, do you have the ability to do the task. If the job is riding a bicycle, do they really care where you learned to ride the bicycle or do they care if you know how to? SEE! • They are not asking you how many times you do an actual task. Only the government will ask you to do that kind of breakdown to what fraction of time per day did you perform each task. • REPEAT RULE #2. • Do not assume that the computer (or for that fact an employer) will understand every aspect of your job and realize that they will not connect the dots for you. That is not their job, it is yours! If you really want the job connect the dots (match up your skills with their requirements). • Understand that this is required to get the job and that the more time you spend to do a quality application the better you chances are of getting called for an interview. Volume does not count especially if they are done incorrectly. There is no such thing as close in applications…this is not a game of horseshoes, it is your future, your ability to get a job and return your life to normal. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- USED JOB SHACK INSIDER… FRONT END CASHIER INTERVIEW - I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week. Interview Details – Had to go through four (4) interviews before I was hired but it was worth it… Interview Question – • There are only two positions left, impress me and tell me why should I give you one of those two positions? • What are your expectations in the future in the company?
    • BAKERY- SANITATION INTERVIEW - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks. Interview Details – I was called by Costco and first they asked me over the phone how much I knew about Costco and what kind of work was involved. I was then invited to an interview the next day. I was interviewed by the front end supervisor and another supervisor (not sure of which department... maybe maintenance?) and they asked me basic questions like: when did you feel like you accomplished a difficult task? When did you have a difficult customer service issue? What are your strengths and weaknesses? When did you have to work in a team to accomplish one goal? Interview Question – • Was there ever an experience when you saw someone doing something against company policies? ---------------------------------------------------- STOCKER INTERVIEW - I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Costco Wholesale. Interview Details – Filled an application on line, was contacted for an interview, met with 2 people who had about 15 questions, was asked to return to interview with the warehouse manager, was asked to do a drug test, started a week later. Process took a week. Interview Question – All questions required a level of thought. ---------------------------------------------------- CASHIER ASSISTANT (FRONT END ASSISTANT) NOT HIRED! - I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks. Interview Details – I applied online on Sunday, October 13th to the new store. I was contacted and set up an interview for that Friday. First interview was with one manager. Second interview was with the same manager plus a different manager. Third interview was with two completely different managers. Looking back, I did not prepare as well for the third interview as I did for the first two interviews. I also allowed myself to be distracted by all the new hires that were enjoying themselves in the waiting room. The first question they asked me, which was very simple, for some reason startled me. It was "Tell me about yourself". I simply was not focused for that third interview and could not help them figure where the best position for me to go was. I did not apply for a specific position which ended up hurting me in the end.
    • QUESTIONS THAT CAME UP: • Why do you want to work for Costco? • Give an example where you wish you could have done something differently with a customer? • Give an example where you were successful due to your ability to communicate? • Describe a time you met a goal and the steps you took to reach it. • What did you do to prepare for the interview? How do you handle feedback or criticism? • Have you experienced working in a fast-pace environment? • Give an example of when you made a mistake; what steps did you take to fix it? • How do you handle unexpected changes or interruptions at work? • Tell about why you like working in teams (or not). • How do you handle unhappy customers? • Do you have any questions for me? ==================================================================== Things I did to prep for the interview: I looked over Costco's website & Googled Costco. I wrote out answers to questions that they may ask. Also wrote down questions to ask them. ================================================================ Interview Question – • Give an example of a time you worked on team in order to meet a goal? • How did you accomplish it? ---------------------------------------------------- CASHIER ASSISTANT SEASONAL INTERVIEW I applied online and the process took 2 weeks. Interview Details – applied online. Later, I received phone call with initial questions about availability… etc. Interviewed with 2 managers. Read questions off a list. Tell me about a time... Then they called back for interview with warehouse manager. Drug tested on the spot. They called the next day and offered the job. Orientation 2 days later. Interview Question – nothing too difficult. Just pull from your experiences. • Tell me about a time someone was upset?
    • • What you did about it and the outcome? ------------------------------------------------------- FOOD SERVICE ASSISTANT INTERVIEW - I applied through an employee referral Interview Details – Applied online first and was called for an interview within the week. I had an interview with the food court manager that lasted about an hour. Was actually a very tough interview for a simple food court position, they asked a lot of behavioral questions. Completed the interview and was called in to do a drug test the next week. Interview Question – • Describe a decision that you made that were unpopular - how you handled it? ------------------------------------------------------- CAKE DECORATOR INTERVIEW - I applied online and the process took 2 months. *DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT, bother applying online if you don't have a referral. I learned this the hard way, having applied numerous times with no connections to Costco, until I finally applied through unemployment and they were able to refer me. (HINT FROM US…GOES OLD SCHOOL AND GO OVER TO MAKE SOME FRIENDS!!!) **Another word of advice -- DRESS PROFESSIONALLY. The number of people who showed up dressed in jeans, a t-shirt, and/or beat up sneakers was appalling. One woman was even wearing a wife beater! I was one of maybe 3 people dressed at least business casual. Odds are, dressing appropriately WILL make you stand out among the rest. I got lucky and got my two interviews (first with bakery managers, then with GM) back to back in the same day. The questions are pretty easy but some are oddly specific, luckily I was allowed to swap for a different question if I couldn't come up with an answer. Basically, if you put a smile on your face and can keep up a good rapport, there's not much that can go wrong. I thought it'd be smooth sailing from there, because they said they'd call me back for a drug test. It ended up taking them forever to call me back. When they finally did, it would be bad timing and they'd have to leave a voicemail and I'd call back only to be redirected to 3 different people before someone could give me a straight answer -- it was like playing a game of phone tag before I could get through to the person I had to talk to. But, I finally did receive my drug test, got a background check, and went through orientation.
    • Interview Questions • Explain a time when you made a mistake. • Explain a time you were given responsibility for company assets or a piece of confidential information. ----------------------------------------------------- SEASONAL PART-TIME INTERVIEW - I applied online - took 4+ weeks. Interview Details – After 2 weeks after application, I dropped by the stores and introduced myself to the managers. I applied two locations. At first store, the manager kept my name and checked my application, and set up interview, but the second store, the manager said they don't have any access to the application. The interview questions are pretty much as same as other people mention. How did you handle the recent emergency situation?" What would you do with angry customers?" They are mostly situation, problem-solving type of questions. After two interviews and the drug-test in the same day, and waited for background check for 10 days, I got an orientation phone call. Interview Question – • How did you handle the recent emergency situation? ---------------------------------------------------- FRONT END CASHIER INTERVIEW I applied in-person and the process took a day. Interview Details – There hiring process was quick. I was in a crowded trailer. There were lots of discussions happening with other people. The interview was quick. I was hired on the spot. Interviewers knew exactly what they wanted, which made the process seamless. They were easy to talk with and were attentive. It was a good experience considering the chaos. Interview Question – How would you handle an irate customer? SALES REPRESENTATIVE INTERVIEW I applied online and the process took 5 days. Interview Details – I interviewed online, they called me back almost immediately 2 days after asking me to come in the very next day. Since the Costco I applied
    • for was not built yet, I had the interview at the local mall. I heard others have a hard time finding the location, but was not hard for me. When I got there, there was 2 others and by the time I was called in the waiting area was quite crowded and had lots of different people there. The girl I sat next to said she was there for her third interview - and that made me nervous than i already was. Little did I know you needed to complete 4 interviews before even being offered a position.(they told me this at the end of the interview.) Two men asked me various questions, which were very situational. You could tell they were looking for very specific characteristics and if you didn't meet them they got you out quickly. Interview Question – • Please explain when you had to handle a situation with accuracy. --------------------------------------------------- CASHIER ASSISTANT (FRONT END ASSISTANT) INTERVIEW - I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 days. Interview Details – I first had an interview with the Front End managers, they asked me simple questions about my life, hobbies, skills, etc. They seemed very interested which was nice. Then sent me home and called me in for a 2nd interview with the warehouse manager, it was there they questioned: • How I liked Costco? • Are you a hard worker? I was hired on the spot. From there I attended orientation where I signed the usual paperwork and watched information videos, took a tour. The basics. Interview Question – • What I didn't like about my last jobs? -------------------------------------------------- CASHIER ASSISTANT (FRONT END ASSISTANT) INTERVIEW - I applied online and the process took 3 weeks. Interview Details – After applying I was called in for an interview a few weeks later. I dressed business casual. I was interviewed by a manager and supervisor. Basic questions about how you would react to certain situations were asked. Then I was interviewed by the main warehouse manager. I remember someone interrupting the interview but I kept my eyes focused on the manager. A week later I accepted the job and went to orientation. Interview Question – They all weren't too difficult. Just be yourself! -------------------------------------------------
    • CART PUSHER INTERVIEW - I applied online and the process took 2 weeks. Interview Details – Filled out an application online and they called back within three days. They scheduled an interview for the following week. The interview was in a room next to the break room. Two employees asked me typical situation questions. They then asked if I had time to do one last interview with the manager, so I agreed. She ultimately just asked about my life and what I like to do in my spare time, nothing more. I took a drug test on the spot and was told they would call if I got the job. They called two weeks later. Interview Question – • Name a time when there was an issue that you had to take the blame for? ------------------------------------------------- FOOD SERVICE ASSISTANT INTERVIEW - I applied online and - took 4+ weeks Interview Details – The hiring process was fast and efficient. I applied for Costco end of May and they called me in June for an interview. They called me in for a "third" interview the next day. So in reality I only had to be interviewed twice. There are two managers who interview you. They will both ask you questions for a total of 14 questions. It's important that you maintain focus on the person asking you the questions. One of the managers will try and distract you and sometimes their walkies will go off, but continue to stay focused on the interview. I skipped the second interview because the managers felt comfortable with me. Just be yourself and you should be fine. Humor is important as well. I was able to make them smile and laugh. The third interview is just a detailed description of the job duties and what to expect and they will ask you if you accept the job. I took the drug test that day and signed papers. This process took only 2 days. Interview Question – There was no difficult or unexpected question because I went in prepared and practiced most of the answers at home. The questions are pretty much all listed on this website. Also if you know nothing about Costco, be sure to do your homework on it before the first interview… =========================================================================

The average American cashier makes $20,230 a year, a salary that in a single-earner household would leave a family of four living under the poverty line. But if he works the cash registers at QuikTrip, it's an entirely different story. The convenience-store and gas-station chain offers entry-level employees an annual salary of around $40,000, plus benefits. Those high wages didn't stop QuikTrip from prospering in a hostile economic climate. Many employers believe that one of the best ways to raise their profit margin is to cut labor costs. But companies like QuikTrip, the grocery-store chain Trader Joe's, and Costco Wholesale are proving that the decision to offer low wages is a choice, not an economic necessity. http://www.quiktrip.com/Jobs/Store/Job-Application-Form Pay Incentives • Entry-Level Assistant Managers are eligible to earn skill-based raises at their six-month anniversary.

    • MAY DAY SPECIALS… NOW HIRING – 158 OPENINGS VALLEY WIDE We're constantly adding new stores and expanding our business so you never know when we may "sprout" in your neighborhood. But one thing is for sure: working at Sprouts is a lot of fun! Sounds right up your alley? All you need is a passion for people and flair for food. We can show you the rest. https://www.sprouts.com/ web/guest/careers WHAT'S IT LIKE TO WORK AT SPROUTS? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tHjC3Ear_a4 This is a must watch video because otherwise you will not understand their company’s mantra (their culture) and you will miss by a mile, the correct answer to “why do you want to work for us?” =========================================================================== REALLY WANT TO GET HIRED? If you really want any of these 150+ jobs then it is on you to give yourself an advantage over the 100,000 other people here in Phoenix that “need” a job. You need to start this with: A. Use ONET ONLINE to construct your application. You need the key words and phrases that you need to populate into your application/resume. You need ONET to help you discover the skills and the abilities that you didn’t know that you had. B. Transfer the application information back into your resume to give a killer resume for this (or this range of jobs).
    • C. APPLY FOR ONLY ONE JOB AND ONLY APPLY TO THE STORE CLOSEST TO YOU. Every store manager is telling us that if you want to get your application tossed, apply for multiple positions at the same store or at a location that is over 5-10 miles away from your home. D. Do your homework! You need to be able to have an intelligent conversation about the company and/or the industry. You need to understand what makes them tick and why they do what they do – without this, how would you know how you fit or if you would? E. Spruce yourself up, combed hair, brushed teeth and a recent bath will go a long way to getting you a longer interview. Dress for success is how you would you would go to work. If you are going to work at IBM, then please wear a suit. Dress for Success for most entry and/or re-entry jobs is a polo shirt and khakis (for building trades and warehouse you are already over-dressed). Do not go to Home Depot in a suit unless you want to be a business sales rep or a senior manager if want to get hired. F. Put on you walking shoes and go to the store you applied for between 10 AM – Noon or 2 – 4 PM (depending upon the business) to introduce yourself as someone who lives in the neighborhood, who applied online and ask if the manager could “please” pull your application. We had a manager say the other day that the sweetest sound is an applicant saying “I just live down the street…” G. Have a direct contact number where you pick up the phone or (if a message phone) where you can return an employer’s call within 30 minutes (if not sooner). You need to have your voice mail on and accepting calls (not full of messages). You need to remove all cute or profound messages or music and replace that with your name. Important to remember, you have one hour to return a call before the employer calls the next on their list. If you don’t return their call in a prompt manner, they believe that you are no longer interested or you are already working. H. DO NOT CALL THEM UNLESS THEY CALLED YOU. Do not do these if you want the job as the employer will see you as too lazy, uninterested or shy to come in person. I.

Also, previous law enforcement or military experience takes everything to higher level of pre-training, qualifications and abilities to fill in at high profile security location(s).
    • IF YOU DO NOT ALREADY HAVE A GUARD CARD DO NOT GO OUT AND GET ONE ON YOUR OWN. It really doesn’t work that way, it is expensive and you will still need to have the 8 hours of training ($40-100 cost…$40 is for bare bones training only and everything else is extra and done by you or the $100 is a full turnkey they do everything for you) by whoever hires you.

The security some of the biggest companies here in the Phoenix Metro Area and they need people who bring their “A” Game daily. So, truly, they only take the best. BUT, SOMETIMES, THE BEST IS NOT THE MOST EXPERIENCED BUT THE MOST MOTIVATED! If you are a security guard want-to-be with little no actual security experience, walking through the door to this open house and present yourself with less than a driven “I want this job and here is why I would be a GREAT Candidate…” which means being on your best “A” Game, if you are not spruced up and looking sharp and/or are not interested in the company (you didn’t know anything about them or their history) and you have the attitude that “I don’t really want the job but, I might take this until something better comes along;” PLEASE STAY HOME because you are not who they are looking for and you would just get your feeling hurt over wasting your time. TIPSTER # 3: If you are a regular reader of the Used Job Shack then you are (by know) familiar with the new generation JOB SEEKING RULE #4. Then you already know what you need to get the full job descriptions…read it completely, several times…tear it apart…pull out all of the required skills/abilities and then, go through each of your jobs and match up what they need and what you have done… that’s only if you really want this job…Now fill out the application.
