Fun Place to Work
Merchandiser (Former Employee) –  Ancaster, ON31 January 2017
Great work environment, low starting pay, but you get steady raises the more hours you work. Great managers and co workers. I would recommend working here over any other retail job I have done.
Pros
Free membership, Steady Raises, Great Benefits and Bonuses
Cons
Hard to get hours as part time or seasonal

Great Benefits
Tire Centre Manager (Current Employee) –  Scarborough, ON31 January 2017
Great benefits, but no work life balance and difficult to advance unless your willing to sacrifice your social and family life. Upper Management is only focused on producing numbers and making their bonus. Not much coaching and training and most managers don't have an education in the background that they're managing.
Pros
Great Benefits
Cons
No Balance

You work for your pay
Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Markham, ON28 January 2017
Its nice as a base job, but the work can became stressful for a student, or a person who has other priorities. When booking time off it can be a headache because management will give you a run around
Pros
good pay
Cons
management can be mean, sometimes the pay isn't worth it

Full-Time and Part-Time Cashier and Assistant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB28 January 2017
I have worked at Costco for 2 years now. The job is fast past and keeps you of a chair for as long as possible. Managers aren't the best but that is what happenes when management hires friends and family that don't have management skills.

Friendly, fast paced, enjoyable work environment
Cashier/Parking Lot Assistant (Former Employee) –  Burnaby, BC28 January 2017
Working at Costco is very fast paced, energetic, and enjoyable. Most work is done independently or with few others. Work is supervised intermittently. Hours are very flexible and management is approachable, though with the large amount of employees, they often lose track of who is who.
Pros
Extra $4 per hour on sundays

Merchandise Stocker & Front End Associate (Current Employee) –  Windsor, ON25 January 2017
Costco Wholesale is a terrific place to work. I have learned many different skills but most important of them all is commitment. The hardest part of the job is waking up at 4am

Extremely well maintained and enjoyable place to work
Front End Assistant (Current Employee) –  Newmarket, ON25 January 2017
Working as a front end assistant can be challenging at times. Knowing where the product is in the warehouse, and properly organizing the members items in the buggy. Making the connections with the members who come in on a regular basis, you learn what they tend to buy, and who their family and friends are. The management at Costco is very supportive of your future endeavours, whether they involve Costco or not. You almost create a family there.

Cake Decorator (Former Employee) –  St. Catharines, ON23 January 2017
This place is extremely fast paced but that makes the day go by quickly. You make extra money on Sundays and you can stay there for years. Most people had been working there for more than 10 years.

Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee) –  Langford, BC21 January 2017
Working in the pharmacy there were some people who truly did not want to be there and made it a toxic work environment. But when those select few were not there work was great and the days went by very fast and fellow employees are very social.
