Maintenance (Cleaner) / Cashier (Current Employee), St. Catharines, ONMarch 9, 2013
I began at costco as a cashier and moved into a maintenance position to gain a permanent position, my position allows me a lot of freedom and a lot of work that can be challenging and fun. I work in a very small department and communication within our department is very important, we all get along very well. Our hours vary and can start as early as – more... 5am and go to 11pm. – less

Hard work with high demand from managment and tight deadlines
Morning Stocker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABFebruary 5, 2013
Pros: paid breaks
Cons: poor management
Started out in assigned department and checked for missing stock and filled missing stock in. Always had to rearrange department to make room for new products which arrived every 4 days. Printed price tags for new products, and made sure department was fully stocked and cleaned before store opened. Management was poor, managers didn't care much about – more... employee's and over abused their position as manager. Co-workers were nice but some really didn't like their jobs which created somewhat of a negative atmosphere. and a high worker turnout. The hardest part of the job was trying to rearrange an entire department with little/no help in under 6 hours. I cant really remember an enjoyable part of the job except when all the managers were not there for a week. – less

Bakery Worker (Current Employee), Dartmouth, NSJanuary 23, 2013
I love the management they had a good sense of humor, and made working with them more fun but I didn't work with them all the time. I understand that all jobs have drama but I feel there was a lot at this location. I never really thought that we were co-workers, we didn't work together as a team. The hardest part of my job was the schedule that was – more... never consistent and in the down season, it makes it almost impossible to work a second job to make ends meet. – less

If they requested additional merchandise I would do a run and retrieve the item. I also occasionally performed cash register duties such as transactions and counting of the – more... till. Management was always willing to help in times of need. I got along greatly with my co-workers. They always helped me when i needed assistance as I did with them. They made my enjoy my job that much more. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy items into the buggys. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with different people everyday – less

Cons: must work every weekend
I am a baker. We produce multiple items daily as a team. I've learned how to organize the day in the most productive way possible. Management is willing to help the employees as well as the members as needed. My co-workers are hard workers and know how to get things done effectively while not letting a stressful day get to them. The hardest part of – more... the job is keeping the shelves filled with enough product to sustain the whole day without being empty.

great employer
Front End Assistant (Former Employee), Mississauga. OntarioJanuary 17, 2013
Pros: huge employee lounge
Cons: 9 hour shift is too long
Most shifts are 5 hours, which is great, the job is physically demanding and very good for weight loss. The hardest part, is the running to the back of the warehouse because the customer is waiting for you. One great aspect is the $4 an hour premium for working on Sundays. The co-workers are helpful and informative and management are always available
