Stocker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 31 January 2017
I Learned a collection of skills such as: - How to shrink wrap - How to use both a cardboard and plastic compactor - Stocking techniques such as 'facing' and rotation of perishables - How to use a pallet jack in an efficient manner - Importance of packaging light, soft items like bread and eggs on top of heavier items.
I also learned and was tested on a number of health risks and hazards when working with foods (raw meats especially), temperature control and the importance of a clean work environment.
While Performing non-essential duties I also learned about costumer importance to the store, and how every employee must always be vigilant to the idea that their behavior while working impacts Costco's reputation.
Tire Centre Manager (Current Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 31 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.
Full-Time and Part-Time Cashier and Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 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.
Cashier/Parking Lot Assistant (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 28 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.
