Contact service agent (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON25 June 2017
Sitting all day between gray spaces. Not enough movement and a lot of repetitive tasks.

Other employees are extremely friendly and the pay is most satisfying.

Front End Assistant (Current Employee) –  Burnaby, BC23 June 2017
At Costco we are always busy, always doing something. If we're not being a cashier, we are cleaning up, going around the warehouse to make sure everything is in order, or pushing carts outside.
Pros
Good pay on Sundays, the schedule is posted 3 weeks ahead.

Flexible scheduling, amazing benefits
Service Assistant (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB19 June 2017
Benefits are well above any other employer at this pay grade.

You start above what most competitors offer for wage, and can earn raises the longer you can stay with the company.

Most employees start with temporary positions, but are often hired back, after their temporary contract has ended, as permanent employees.

Really a great place, always busy and things to do and numerous opportunities through the year to train in other departments like the Tire Center or Bakery.
Pros
Food and Snacks are a weekly delight from the in store deli and bakery.
Cons
Members can be real pricks, just like any retail environment.

Days can be very busy and hectic with somewhat strict management. Lot of standing and on your feet work but staff and atmosphere are relaxed. Decent work environment.

Conditions générales chez costco wholesale
Superviseur (Former Employee) –  Quebec City, QC13 June 2017
Le service doit être rapide, souvent pas assez d'employés pour fournir à la demande, car le payroll est géré de près pour offrir aux membres les prix les plus bas.

Sinon, les salaires et avantages sociaux sont les plus élevés que je connaisse dans le marché du commerce au détail.

Excellentes opportunités d'avancement à l'interne, si l'employé ne veut pas compter le nombre d'heures qu'il consacre à la compagnie.

Horaire de jour/soir/fin de semaine; très difficile pour famille et vie de couple, si le partenaire travaille du lundi au vendredi.
Pros
Salaires élevés; excellents avantages sociaux
Cons
Jamais de congé les fin de semaines avec familles et amis, quarts de travail différents de semaine en semaine, pression sur les employés pour que le service soit rapide, manque de main-d'oeuvre

Good job all in all
Service employee + stocker (Former Employee) –  Pointe-Claire, QC12 June 2017
Nothing special here, just work and when you hit brackets of hours complete you get raises. The ceiling for pay is rather high as a basic employee if you're there long enough so that more often than not enticed people to stay while I worked there.
Pros
Fun environment, fast pace
Cons
Weird hours, never have weekends off

A place to learn discipline and working on a schedule
Morning Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Red Deer, AB7 June 2017
A typical day at work consisted of making the store presentable to customers when the entered. This meant we had a limited time to complete our task. From this job I learned diligence and discipline and how to present a store to customers. The most difficult part of the job was working under a deadline constantly and dealing with heavy products.

Great pay and benefits.....
Forklift Operator, Cashier, Tire centre (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON5 June 2017
Great pay and benefits but the work environment is terrible. Management is always on your case about up selling and flow of scanned items on your till and many more. A lot of favouritism, I mean it is everywhere. As well as management does not back up their own employees and leave them paying for what happened to the customer even if its the customers fault. Will never work for them again. It is very stressful working there too, they are not considerate for their employees with health issues.
Pros
salary
Cons
Stressful, and frusterating
