Tedious, but a good environment
Morning Stocker (Former Employee), Edmonton, ABMay 23, 2013
Pros: good people, helpful co-workers
Cons: disorganized management, most positions lack flexibility.
I suppose the work environment is all dependent on the particular Costco that you are applying to, but my experience at Costco Wholesale has gone quite well.

The work is a bit tedious and management can be a bit scrambled at times, but the work environment has always been great. From my experience the company seems to attract good, likable personality – more... types and very helpful individuals who do their job well. – less
