This is a fast paced workplace and requires knowledge on product

There is a lot of opportunity to grow your skills within the company, there are plenty of department to transfer to. The workplace is full of friendly and helping co-workers to help you with your experience.
extremely fast paced, stressful and not very rewarding
Bakery Clerk (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 24 May 2017
part time hours are anywhere from 25 hrs/week-40hrs/week.full time is 40 + hr/week. part time employees do not get benefits even working full time hours because the company doesn't want to promise the hours. vacation hours can only be taken at certain times of the year. extremely fast paced environment and very stressful. from experience,management does not give much positive feedback. Always being pushed to do things you may or may not be comfortable doing.

Stock Person (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB – 16 May 2017
A typical day at Costco included getting your boots on and gathering any other equipment needed for that day. stocking any displays that needed it and facing any that did not, and lastly, clean up your section. The culture was relaxed, everyone worked hard but conversation while working was common. Management was great, they stepped in when needed and had good working relationships with their crew. The hardest part of the job was getting your muscles warmed up in the morning once that happened you are good to go for the rest of the day. The most enjoyable part was the conversations with my fellow employees.
Cashier Assistant (Former Employee) – St. John's, NL – 16 May 2017
I met lots of people there and over all enjoyed my time at Costco. However the management were not too understanding when it came to scheduling shifts. They required you give them your availability status but then would schedule you to work when you said you weren't available.
Were not understanding about when I was not available to work because of school.
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.
