Store Associate (Former Employee) – Mountain View, CA – 5 December 2013
Greeting customers as they enter & leave the store. Meeting new people daily. Co-workers are always friendly & helpful. Hradest part is dealing with difficult people. When they don't want to be bothered. You just put a smile on your face and do the best you can.
Product Demonstrator (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 17 July 2017
PWD is a separate company that worked with Costco. PWD was very disorganized, management was rude and didn't seem to care about their employees. I did learn a lot however. I learned many social and hands on skills, learned to work independently as well as with others. The hardest part was focusing on keeping up with the demands of samples as well as keeping track of how much product you've gone through which was also something I learned. I did however love my coworkers and a lot of the customers made my day.
Food Attendant (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 12 July 2017
I had a nice time at Costco, the other workers where kind and helpful. The manager was great and was there if we needed them. It did not worry me if there was a lot of customers because others would come and help out.
Food Demonstrator (Former Employee) – London, ON – 11 July 2017
I enjoyed working with the customers, lots of different types of people. Enjoyed being social and outgoing. Liked to explore what the store had to offer that I may want to buy. Did not feel welcome or comfortable with management and coworkers didn't feel like I had job security.

Costco is a good place to work when you are trying for find some skills to put on to your resume. I enjoyed working at Costco because the people there are really nice and the management system is not as bad other places.

Very fast paced No room for error Management ok Hardest part keeping up in mornings and during busy times Some great coworkers. Overall not bad place but long intervals between raises takes a long time for very small amount. Can take over a yr or more.
