Very fast paced and busy all the time, which is perfect for me.
Front End Assistant (Current Employee), SaskatoonNovember 17, 2014
Pros: lots of new and unique people.
Cons: scheduling
Costco is a very great place to work! Very fast paced all day everyday. You're busy your entire shift. Constantly communicating and helping all kinds of members. All Costco workers are very hard working people that consider all of the members needs. Management is overall good, although they don't work around your schedule. It is a great costumer service – more... job and the workers are treated very good. – less

Productive experience in marketing and merchandising.
Front End Customer Service Associate (Former Employee), Etobicoke, ONOctober 24, 2014
Pros: benefits, work environment.
Cons: working outside sometimes.
It was very high-pace working required a lot of physical activity, but it wasn't a problem for me. I liked to deal with customers, co-workers. Only one thing was really bothering me when some of our managers sent me to do works not connected with customer service at all, such as weeding and sweeping outside. By the way, I wasn't warned about any possibility – more... of these duties-activities during hiring process. The most enjoyable part of the job was marketing when I was convincing Costco's members to switch they membership cards to new more beneficial for them. Because of this I improved significantly my customer service skill. – less

Supervisor (Current Employee), Newmarket, ONOctober 8, 2014
Pros: free membership. great benifits and pay
Cons: required to work on weekends as well as holidays when opened. no set shifts, must be available day and night.
Each day brings you something new. Having the opportunity to meet new people everyday and learn skills that can help you advance (whether your looking to make Costco your career or if your a student getting ready for the working world) many opportunities are waiting. Fast and friendly work environment. Being flexible is a must.

Super fast paced pharmacy, all about the numbers, terrible work/life balance.
Certified Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee), Victoria, BCSeptember 30, 2014
Too many strong personalities in a small working area, very unorganized, very stressful, schedule would change constantly, sometimes without notice, other times when I would approach my manager regarding time off for school, she would just bully me into taking more shifts! A few of my co-workers were awesome, nice people, but the rest, well, I'll just – more... say I'm happy they're not my co-workers anymore. – less

Pays well and has amazing people
Stocker/Folder (Former Employee), Ancaster, ONSeptember 25, 2014
Pros: occassionally free lunches, paid vacations, dental and health benefits
Cons: hours change, lack of organization
The hardest part of the job is the members (customers). The most enjoyable part of the job is the people you work with. A typical day would involve helping members, stocking, and cleaning up. It is a good job all in all, with great coworkers and good benefits.

Productive workplace with ups and downs, however it is a fun workplace with foosball table
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Vaughan, ONSeptember 16, 2014
A typical day at Costco when you walk in as an employee, you see a clean environment. Everyone is on there pees and q's. I have learned that being apart of such a big business is no joke. Costco is a company dedicated to its members. The co-workers that I have come across are not always the nicest people, but what can you do? But address certain situations – more... and try to leave it behind you. The hardest part of my job was trying to please everyone, plus trying to have good time management. The most enjoyable part of my job was seeing the gorgeous woman coming in and out of the store. – less

Forklift driver for multiple departments (Former Employee), Calgary, ABSeptember 12, 2014
Pros: great benefit package
Great place to work, very fast paced, physically demanding. Good team environment, constantly changing priority. Management is promoted from within, so the opportunity to learn all aspects of the business is present.
Hardest part of the job was to accept that most days everything was not completed to perfection.
The most enjoyable part of the job was – more... the sense of accomplishment, the feeling that even thought I was one small part of the whole organization, each day I made a contribution. – less

Very active environnement
Membership associate (Former Employee), Marche-CentralSeptember 11, 2014
Pros: on week-ends, we can choose the time of our breaks.
Cons: on week-ends we were paid 2$ more every hour.
On a regular work day basis, I would mostly prodvide information to customers about our offers. I would go arround the store and find new customers ( our customers friends) to open-up a membership with us or even a credit card. Knowing that the store is huge, we would be multiple people doing it. Everyday would be a new challenge with new goals. The – more... hardest part of my job was getting a customer to open a credit card because they wouldn't wanna pay extra, or for many other reasons. The best part of my job was the fact that I get to walk around but and be in different departments in the store. I would meet different people from around the country and I would always approach them differently about our memberships. – less
