Hard work with high demand from managment and tight deadlines
Morning Stocker (Former Employee), Edmonton, AB – February 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, NS – January 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

Pros: great people to work with

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.

Front End Assistant (Former Employee), Mississauga. Ontario – January 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

Coscto was a good job. I was a merchandizer, so I put things on the shelves. It fun. I only worked with a few people at a time but i liked it like that. My coworkers were mostly nice and the managers were cool.. I wish I didnt loose this job.
Front End Clerk (Current Employee), Windsor, ON – November 26, 2012
Pros: good company. they give all of their employess and family free memeberships to shop
Cons: heavy lifting constantly
Costco is a very busy place to work on any given day. Management is fair to everyone. Co-workers are great to work with and everyone gets along as a team player. Costco is a warehouse, so you do have to buy a membership to shop, therefore you are meeting and dealing with new members everyday.It is very difficult to be hired on full-time at Costco, they – more... usually only hire part-time employess. – less
