Welcoming and employee-orientated structure
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 May 2017
As my first job, Costco was a positive experience. Initially I had expected a more rigid and a very labor-work orientated job, but my manager and supervisors always ensured my well-being and welcomed me into the work force at Costco.
During the day, I would help pack the merchandise into the carts for customers and shelf products. At the end of the day, I would organize carts and unwanted products.
I gained more confidence in greeting and welcoming people. Also, I became more punctual with getting ready for work on time.
The most difficult part of the job is when the lines at the cash registar till become very long since I would have to constantly help packing the merchandise. Since the lines were long, there was a pressure to get the job done faster.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer compliments me for my work.
