Stocker (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – 26 March 2014
Though I did enjoy the company of many employees there - I never did not like anybody at Costco - I must say that working the Graveyard shift (which typically started at 3 am to 9 am) certainly took its toll on me, both physically and mentally. Every shift consisted of me lifting 50 lb rice bags, which put a great strain on my back; and due to the time that such shifts occurred, I often would find myself asleep in bed throughout the day.
This is a fast paced workplace and requires knowledge on product

There is a lot of opportunity to grow your skills within the company, there are plenty of department to transfer to. The workplace is full of friendly and helping co-workers to help you with your experience.
extremely fast paced, stressful and not very rewarding
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 24 May 2017
part time hours are anywhere from 25 hrs/week-40hrs/week.full time is 40 + hr/week. part time employees do not get benefits even working full time hours because the company doesn't want to promise the hours. vacation hours can only be taken at certain times of the year. extremely fast paced environment and very stressful. from experience,management does not give much positive feedback. Always being pushed to do things you may or may not be comfortable doing.

Stock Person (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 16 May 2017
A typical day at Costco included getting your boots on and gathering any other equipment needed for that day. stocking any displays that needed it and facing any that did not, and lastly, clean up your section. The culture was relaxed, everyone worked hard but conversation while working was common. Management was great, they stepped in when needed and had good working relationships with their crew. The hardest part of the job was getting your muscles warmed up in the morning once that happened you are good to go for the rest of the day. The most enjoyable part was the conversations with my fellow employees.
Cashier Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 16 May 2017
I met lots of people there and over all enjoyed my time at Costco. However the management were not too understanding when it came to scheduling shifts. They required you give them your availability status but then would schedule you to work when you said you weren't available.
Were not understanding about when I was not available to work because of school.
MERCHANDISING (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 3 May 2017
I have worked at Costco since I was 18 years old and they have treated me so well! They strive to make you want to stay with the company as a career and there is always room to make advances within job titles within the warehouse.
Membership Service Representative (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 3 May 2017
Great place to work, learned a lot about fast paced environments while ensuring excellent customer service. The hardest part of the job was the volume of members that would come in per day, but it was fairly easy to adapt to and it makes the days go by faster.
