Tire Center Supervisor (Current Employee), Sterling, VA – May 9, 2014
Pros: good pay
Cons: rude and helpless members
Not a bad company to work for. Good pay and benefits with friendly staff and management. I would just like to find a newer and better career in field other than retail. Like I said, Costco is nice but I do not want to work in retail.

They value education that they comply with the schedule of the student part-time workers. They give cross training time to time for employees to be able to experience and learn in different departments. The managers are nice and approachable. Everybody gets along and very friendly with each other.
Merchandiser/Stocker (Former Employee), Edmonton, Alberta – November 17, 2013
Pros: extra 4.00 an hour on sundays
Cons: terrible shift
Costco was a good company to work for. When I was hired I took on the shift that ran anywhere between 4:15 and 12:00pm. It was difficult for me to get there at those times since busses were not running. I approached my manager and she was not very helpful. The hardest part about the job was the hours. Best part was all the great people.
Customer Service (Former Employee), Coquitlam, BC – November 12, 2013
Pros: got to talk to alot of different people.
Cons: only part time, needed to find full time work.
Was responsible for the jewelry counter. Showing jewelry to customers, greeting customers as they come in the store. This job was only a stepping stone and needed to have an income. It is a great place to work but not for someone that enjoys working in an office.
Pharmacy Assistant (Former Employee), Sudbury, ON – November 7, 2013
Costco is a extremely fast-paced and friendly environment. I gained a great deal of experience on the inner-workings of a pharmacy. I got to see first hand exactly what a pharmacist and the technicians do on a day-to-day basis. I loved the people I work with, they were friendly, patient, and always open to my questions. The hardest part of the job was – more... adjusting to the pace but I adapted quickly and the shifts flew by! I would recommend employment at Costco to any students currently perusing their secondary studies. Costco is very flexible with scheduling and encourages academics. Overall a fantastic experience! – less
Food Service Assistant (Current Employee), Nepean, ON – October 22, 2013
Pros: great people, routine, positive environment, flexible
Cons: some late nights required, some early mornings required
Costco Wholesale is an amazing company, there's room to grow regardless of what position is initially given. The staff and managers are approachable and are helpful even in the tightest situations. Any work done within the warehouse is meant to be done as a team and not a solo operation. The warehouse also provides variety in daily tasks and routine, – more... because it's customer based the same "stock and buy" routine is there but the amount of people that are dealt with on a daily basis changes so much, that the job feels different every time. Even though Costco is a "Big Box" retailer, it has so much more to offer, the employees are happy to be there and it loses any stereotypes given to it once you understand the company a bit more. – less
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Markham, ON – September 14, 2013
As with all other retailers, working at Costco provided me with the experience to work during the December holidays preparing me and providing me with a chance to over come the challenges of working in an extremely fast paced busy environment.
Great enviroment to work in and never a dull moment!
Sales Associate (Former Employee), London, ON – September 13, 2013
i sold presious natural stones in sterling silver stttings. i learned about all different types of stones and the worth of the items, the management of the kioske was professional. the hardest part of the job was talking about a product like you knew everything about it but you were just learning the ropes. The most enjoyable part was the learning experience – more... of the product and having customers leave knowledgable and happy with thier purchases! – less
