PWD is a different company than Costco. If you were treated poorly by PWD don't put it in the Costco Company one as the Demo people are not employed by Costco.

Good Place to work
Front End Clerk (Current Employee), Windsor, ONNovember 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

very busy
Cashier Baraka Mulimbwa (Former Employee), winnipeg mbOctober 13, 2012
Pros: great work environment
Cons: long extended hours after store closes
the work days at cotsco were very busy, and very demanding. In the beginning it was fun to work there and its hard to get in there as well so once you get in you your laughing (figuratively) a day is rough your either packing carts, pushing carts, your a runner of products the customer may have forgotten or no longer wants if its to be refridgerated, – more... or you can be doing all 3. The most enjoyable
part of working there is the people they are amazing to work with in all aspects. – less
