Might as well find something better while you can, especially if you're a student
Pros: Work is easy to grasp, the CSRP makes things easier, you work with some good people
Cons: the hours suck, alway short staffed, never get weekends off, terrible management, favoritism, lifers, bad scheduling
My day is usually boring and all that. I go in, stock stuff before the store opens then find something to do before my shift is done. Overall, Its not a place where I want to work at after my degree. The management is pretty horrible. I get that you go in to do your job, but even that alone doesn't satisfy them. Managers should thank their coworkers as we work hard to do what you want. Some (not all) Coworkers don't treat you that great even if you work hard on the job. Yes you work as a team but a lot of people I work with have no ambition. I've been there almost 3 years and trying to move to the front end because a lot of younger staff work there, and the hours are more realistic. That's another thing, these hours aren't ideal, and if you're late you get a write up. Scheduling is horrendous as they make mistakes quite a lot on the schedule and I have to remind them what days off I originally gave them. I don't get benefits since I'm a student which is find cause its just temporary till I find something better. The job nature is fairly boring, routine and repetitive. Its just the people you have to work with at times that make it unbearable. Overall they "treat their employees well" but that doesn't mean that they value you as a person. The hardest part of the job I would say is that it can be physically challenging but that's about it. Also, once you do it over time, you don't really learn anything, and its not really a fun environment since people there just do it for the paycheck rather than passion. Most enjoyable part of the job is that the people who have been there for too long know what their doing so it makes your work easier when someone tells you how to do something. All in all, Costco needs to take into consideration the value of how hard employees work. If you don't like it, might as well find a job that will make you happy in the long run rather than working there for years which has made some people go crazy.
