Very fast pace environment, receiving merchandise an stocking shelves, with strick deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with ,They were really laid back an friendly an easy to get along with.

This is a great company to work for. They treat their employees very well. Room to grow and learn in your area as well as advancements and transfers around the world. Opportunity to meet and interact with people from customers, coworkers and management.

Costco in my opinion is a great company to work for; mainly because there is never a dull moment when I am working there because there is always something to do at all times. For example, taking unwanted items from customers back where they belong, organizing buggies, helping out produce if needed, collecting all the empty boxes. Secondly, Costco is also a great company to work for knowing that they provide a program from students called the CSRP program which basically allows individuals who are going to school only work weekends, giving them the rest of the week to completely focus on school. Lastly, is Costco provides premium pay on Saturdays and Sundays and provides a lot of benefits and increases the wage as individuals go up the hierarchy.

Costco is a great organization to work for. Great colleagues, decent hours. Problem is - it takes a long time advance within the organization............................................................................
Attendant (Former Employee) – Guelph, ON – 11 June 2018
the pay is great for the type of work, its a bit boring though. raises/promotion are given on seniority and not work ethic. be prepared to work part-time for at least a year or two because full time positions are given based on seniority as well. Managers are great at least mine was from the Guelph branch (food court). some Of the younger kids were always making drama so that kinda sucks but not the worst
Front End Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 June 2018
the majority of management is incompetent and tends to micromanage employees. Atmosphere is very fast paced and stressful. Pay and benefits are decent. In addition there is no wifi access in the warehouse, and the closest sources of food are of poor quality. Bring your own lunch if possible.
Decent pay, good benefits system, rewards employees for shopping in store
Poor management, no wireless access, stressful environment.
Caissière (Current Employee) – Candiac, QC – 8 June 2018
Une journée typique chez Costco c'est de voir environ 54 membres à l'heure et d'offrir quotidiennement des options plus adaptés à la clientèle. J'ai appris à sortir de mon confort et d'avoir une approhe amélioré et plus facile envers les clients. Le plus difficile est de devoir bien gérer le temps entre les commandes à passer et les promotions qui doivent être appliqué en même temps. Le plus agréable est le contact quotidien avec une clientèle aux standards plus élever. C'est de relever le défi que cela occasionne chaque journée passée à mon travail
great opportunities for advancement and making a career

Some of the best people I've ever worked with. They become like a family. Learned a lot about customer service, salesmanship, and working in a team. The fast pace can be hard but is also invigorating. Lots of opportunities and advancement is quick if your motivated.
Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 2 June 2018
Many coworkers gave poor instructions, some would slack off and push their work on me. Pay was good at the time, although the job was relatively labour intensive, and the environment was hot due to the ovens.
FOOD SERVICE ASSISTANT, LEAD (Former Employee) – Fredericton, NB – 31 May 2018
The only reason I left is due to a car accident not being able to handle the concrete floor any longer. It was going to be my career. How many people can say that about a box store? Love and miss my Costco Family♥
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 31 May 2018
Expect to be on the go all the time. That said the people who work and shop there are mostly friendly and understanding which means you don't take stress or work home with you. Management was understanding and easy to talk to in regards to personal of professional situations.
Don't expect to advance quickly. People stick with Costco for a long time so job openings are hard to come by and mostly hire senior employees.
Seasonal Employee (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 28 May 2018
Great Company, great people and great all around experience. I would love to continue working for Costco if a full time position became available. I believe Costco would be a great place to have a career!
