Do you want to be part of Costco? Costco Soulmate Trading Outlet is experiencing explosive growth and a need to expand our already highly talented, loving, extremely good-looking and fun-at-a-party staff. We’re ¬†officially a worker-owned collective, and we consider each other family. That means it is really important to us to get to know the people who want to camp with us at Burning Man before we confirm that they will be a part of our team. So every year we conduct a formal application process. This is our opportunity to ask you questions, give you information, and (just like a real job interview) it gives both parties a chance to see if the other is the right fit!

This is the hardest, most meaningful work I have ever done in my life,” said CEO, Rico.

The position you are applying for is the CSR position as a Full Time member of the camp. This interview process is similar in nature, but not degree, to what you would be doing on Playa except you are in the role of customer. The interview process consists not only of this form but also includes contact by: email, txt, phone calls, skype or smoke signal. At the end of the interview process, we will either make you an offer to join the camp or let you know that we don’t think CSTO & you are quite the right fit.

Please fill out the application form below. Before you start typing, please ensure that your sense of humour has been activated.
