Front End/Cashier (Former Employee) – Foster City, Ca – 10 December 2011
I really admire the work ethic that you must have if you work at costco. It's about hard work with good pay and raises. Great benefits include health insurance, free membership for you and family, paid holidays and 1 week paid vacation.
Fast paced work environment with pressure driven management.
everything I did here was customer service (Former Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 20 September 2017
In the 9 years I worked here I worked my way up to Forklift Driver. I was a very hard worker and improved many aspects of the job. I developed staff and exceeded expectations; very little recognition and positive reinforcement was given.
Reasonable pay and good benefits
Management is not very good at recognized and appreciated staff
Great for those that need security and want the ability to advance with great benefits and a decent job culture

Costco offers a wide variety of entry level positions with the ability to change between the different jobs and locations throughout the world. Salary is competitive and excels industry average after a few years of service.
Deli Clerk (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 15 September 2017
It was the best job I had but due to a family emergency I had to leave but one day I like to return. Working Sundays gave us bouns on our paychecks and I was given very good hours just being a part-timer.
Certified Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 September 2017
It was a great job when it came to benefits and a retirement savings plan. but I did not like how as a tire tech I needed to do a bunch of other departments jobs as well. I did not realize this applying for the job
Seasonal Front End Clerk (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 7 September 2017
Costco was a great place to work as a student during the summers. Fast-paced environment with lots of exercise running around the warehouse getting/returning product, helping the cashiers, packing merchandise at the till.
Cashier/Packer (Former Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 4 September 2017
I worked at costco for the 2017 summer seasonal position. It was a good place to work for the summer as a student because of the good pay ($13 an hour and $17 on Sundays), but going back to school i would never be able to handle it. They give long hours even to seasonal employees who are expected to get the least amount, and it is so hard trying to get days off. I had to miss out on family weddings and trips because my time off wasn't approved.
good pay, friendly employees
long hours, hard to get time off, favouritism from management
Front End Assistant, Night Merchandiser, Cashier (Current Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 29 August 2017
over the four years, i've worked for Costco, they've supported me through college. providing flexible hours and support and without that, I would still be working on that diploma. The management team is enthusiastic and caring. they really show that they value their employee's health and well-being and promote these values within the company. when potential or interest is shown in advancement, support and advocacy are offered. it was a pleasure working for Costco, its just time to move forward.
