Stocker (Former Employee) – Redwood City, CA – March 26, 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.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Peterborough, ON – February 4, 2016
Costco Peterborough is an overall decent workplace but it does have a lot of cons about it, management is not effective or reliable or even trustworthy, there is a lot of "drama" in Costco Peterborough, things there were not done to spec as they should have been and there seems to have been a lot of shortcuts made to make the job easier which was also not ok, even in full time positions you are not guaranteed a consistent schedule or will never know what is going to happen, they do not work with your "life" schedule and only want you to really show up and work and could care less about your life and how the hours could or are affecting you as a human being on your physically and emotional level!
Sales Associate, Majors and Hardlines (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – February 3, 2016
starts with stocking, learnt how to do sales, managment was very supportive,co workers were helpful. Hardest part of the job was dealing with rude customers but Costco taught me how to handle it, most enjoyable part of the job is to help members with their technical questions

Work load was perfectly balanaced among team mates and for fun we used to enjoy by watching Tv Management & co-workers were quite helpful in resolving our problems and they always present for you when you need them.
Cashier, Packer (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – January 27, 2016
It is a great place to work, I would recommend anyone to work there. I enjoyed all of the jobs they got me to do. I liked the hours, my co-workers, my pay, my managers. I was sad I was only a seasonal worker. I hope to get rehired in the spring.
Meat Assistant (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – January 27, 2016
Working at Costco as a seasonal employee, I wished I could've fully stayed on as a part/full-time associate. The people I work with are generally all nice people, really easy to talk to, and make the workday a little better. Typically, I would start by organizing and condensing the meat counters, and running to the coolers to see what I can bring out to the main floor. And then asking if there's anything needed to be completed afterwards. I learned how to package meat, work with the machines, learning to label the different kinds of product, and basic sanitation skills. The management in my department are nothing short of amazing. They always gave me something to do, knew how to keep me busy, and overall they're nice people who are easy to come to if I ever needed help. To me, every thing is hard before it gets easy. I guess that the hardest thing was making new adjustments to different situations.
Assistant to meat cutter (Former Employee) – Windsor, ON – January 18, 2016
If i wasn't seasonal then I would be full time but it was the best job i could have ever worked. Even the part time employees get some benefits. Every staff member is extremely nice. Even the Supervisors are extremely pleasant to work for.
Big Break room. Vending machines. Everyone's so nice.
There are none. This is a really good job in every aspect.
Costco was a great company to learn several aspects about how a business should operate efficiently
supervisor (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – January 18, 2016
Costco 's culture is very obvious to those who work there and also the consumers who visit the store. It enables a positive atmosphere and the connections shared with various employees encourages teamwork. They were very demanding in what they needed to be done but always made you feel like you are a part of the Costco family, and you always felts as if your work was essential to the success of the company.
Pharmacy Assistant (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – January 13, 2016
Costco helped me to grow both as a professional as well as an individual. Working at Costco during my undergraduate career helped grow a variety of skills and helped me gain knowledge which allowed me to further succeed in school. Costco was very accepting of me as a student and allowed me to take time off when I needed to study for mid-terms as well as final exams.
