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.
Part-time front-end cashier (Current Employee) – Ajax, ON – 26 March 2017
A typical day at Costco is very busy and you are always moving around. Whether your packing cart, on cash, returning items to the shelves, or stocking shelves. I have learned to work with others as well as work quickly and efficiently. Everyone is very friendly, making Costco an enjoyable place to work.
Welcoming workplace with friendly and helpful coworkers

Costco Wholesale was extremely welcoming as a new employee. Shift schedules are posted long in advance and my supervisors are understanding and approachable. I feel very lucky to have had the privilege to work alongside so many kind and friendly people.
Able to interact with friendly and helpful people.

Costco is by far the worst company to work for. It is filled with liars, back stabbers and people that will throw you under the bus to get ahead. You can't trust any body there, people will pretend to be your friend just to stab you in the back to get ahead. They have a open door policy which they will use to get you to feel comfortable to talk to them but then they use it against you. Management is horrible. They call people that may be "slow" re**rd behind their backs. Do yourself a favor and don't apply there, it's not worth it!
Benifits...Thas about it.
MANAGEMENT...and other employees. To many other things to mention.
Cashier Assistant (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 20 March 2017
Costco has a great sense of community, and treats their employees remarkably well. There is plenty of opportunity to grow from within, and even part-time workers are offered benefits of the job rather than only being set aside for full-timers.
Product Demonstrator (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 20 March 2017
Costco is a very nice place to work. working as a demonstrator and in the sales department made my communication skills improve and how to manage everything. The best part about working there is you get to meet new people and communicate with them.
Stocker (Current Employee) – Medicine Hat, AB – 17 March 2017
I learned about the merchandise and equipment at Costco, I had the opportunity to train on the forklift and skud. The overall workplace is super friendly, my co-workers and supervisors were awesome to work and talk with. Management was very understanding about scheduling around school hours. Most enjoyable part of my job is working with my hands, lifting and feeling satisfied with how much I worked.

Its been a wonderful journey so far to be a part of one of the largest wholesale companies globally, great opportunity to learn in a fast paced organization which requires us to be multi-tasking. The most enjoyable part of this job is to meet people from all round which is something I love because of my outgoing personality. I love the management and enjoy their support in every day activities at work.

Costco is well known for it's multiple advancement options offered to it's staff based on their cultural value to promote from within which is great for their employees. This leads to a good overall motivation from their staff and also helps the process of making employees adopt your cultural values.
Advancement possibilities, Good security, good benefits
