I was a cashier, but my job consisted of many different aspects. Physical labour, stocking shelves, folding clothes, sometimes inventory or training is all part of being a cashier at this job, as well. One time we even got paid to knock out all the tills and help the construction workers install the new ones over night. The pay is decent for what it is, the variety keeps it from being boring, and the staff is a healthy mix of student and lifers. management can be relentless about upselling memberships, but every job as its drawbacks. overall I'd recommend working here, especially for students.
Produce Evening Stocker (former) (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 12 October 2018
Great place to work with a friendly staff and great amount of hours. Always willing to help you when you need the support from your coworkers. Management improves your ability to work if you give them the leeway to learn.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 11 October 2018
Its an engaging and satisfying place to work, with spectacular benefits and good on the job training. The management could stand improvement as scheduling issues and lapses in availability occurred frequently.
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 11 October 2018
Good place to work, you put in the hours and it's worth it in the end, the staff was really nice and the pay is good to start if you want to work there in the long term, also lots of position to choose from.
Front End Assistant (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Richmond, BC – 9 October 2018
This was my first seasonal job ever and at this Costco I worked at pretty much almost but not everyone was so rude to me no one talks to you durning break time the managers minus one person are very rude they talk behind your backs and treat you poorly.
Caissière (Former Employee) – Boucherville, QC – 5 October 2018
J'ai aimé travailler chez Costco parce que c'est un endroit ou il y a toujours du service a faire. Tu ne peux pas passer quelque minutes sans rien faire et c'est vraiment ce que j'aimais ne jamais regarder le temps. Ce que j'ai moins aimé est qu'ils nous donnaient pas de formation complète lorsqu'on était a un nouveau poste.
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 1 October 2018
It was very good to work there and I enjoyed it. It needs tolerance and patience due to all sorts of moods and personalities. Co workers were the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part was getting the cooked food out fast.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 September 2018
Lots of heaving lifting, everything at Costco is large scale. hard working fast pace environment. They have a great benefits package and lots of opportunity to grow. They care about their employees and you don't feel like a number. I found it to be a good company to work for overall.
Assistant (Former Employee) – warehouse – 30 September 2018
great benefits, bad shifts for positions other than a cashier or front desk. 4am starts or 1:30 pm- 11pm. Management communication is poor within. Fast paced and overall a great place to learn new skills. Promotes from within.Trains from within.
