Hiring for Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet!

Full-time opportunities available at our flagship Black Rock City location!

If you are an energetic, compassionate person who enjoys a fast-paced team environment filled 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.

We offer premium soulmates at bargain prices at our flagship store in Black Rock City, Nevada.
Every burn, we interview over a thousand customers using our patented interview process, giving us a little peek into their soul. Once we've figured them out, we feed that data into our servers via satellite uplink, and analyze them using our patented Soulmate Matcher (tm) algorithm. We then provide them with one (1) quality soulmate match, and send them off to find their soulmate. Their form is provided to another quality soulmate, so two (2) for the price of one (1)!

This application is for a full-time role of Customer Service Representative (CSR). As CSRs, we work ~15 hours in the store, interviewing customers. We also work 1-2 kitchen shifts, and help with setting up and taking down the camp. Our hard work allows us to not only share an amazing experience with hundreds of people each year, it also means we have 2 great meals a day and infrastructure like shade, couches, music, and a bar tent.

Costco is a diverse workforce and our mission is to create an environment of inclusion. It's who we are. Women and minorities are especially encouraged to join our team.

Email us at cstosouls (at) gmail dot com to learn more about this exciting opportunity!

Realtalk: we've been on the playa since 1997 and match up thousands of people each year. We're a mix of fuckos, cuddlebuckets, and special snowflakes with one thing in common: we like to help people find their new best friends. Sometimes it's hard work, but it's also incredibly meaningful and allows you to meet and dig into the souls of a bunch of people who are looking for deeper connections.

I have experience as both a satisfied customer of Costco® and as a nearby neighbor for multiple years. This business enriches our local community and enhances property value for all nearby ventures. I imagine they are an excellent resource for new hires looking to get experience, or for those looking to round out their resumes with service-oriented experience.

Additionally, they are always willing to help you find the Morning Train.

When he puts out his lamp, he sends the flower, or the star, to sleep.
That is a beautiful occupation.

Thanks for contacting me. As a former Psychology/Sociology major, this sounds interesting. I am also a returning Temple Guardian.
Happy to interview with you ☺

This sounds like a great opportunity.
Where are you based out of?
This will be my 4th year on playa, and I'm experienced in set up and break down as well as the kitchen.
I'd be very interested in an early entry opportunity if you need assistance with build.
Let me know, thank you!

Glad to hear you guys are back! I had so much fun at your camp last year. My SO and I both did our profiles and interviews. Funny thing, when we returned the next day and got our matches, he got matched with someone else but I ended up being matched with him. Haha, I came to get rid of him! :p

Anyway, I just wanted to say Costco was a fantastic way to start my first burn and I'll be visiting you guys again this year. :D
