Tire Technician (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMarch 17, 2016
Pros: Very friendly, open and understanding atmosphere.
Cons: Working evening shift often meant not being home until 11:00 pm.
Costco has some of the best employers I've had the pleasure working for. As a union setting, co-workers and members of seniority become a tight-knit community always looking out for one another's best interests. Once employed, hard workers can easily be promoted within and often become life-long employees.
