Stressful/ Favoritism
To much stress on pushing credit card/executive card.
Very, hard to get into a Costco, and to get full time.

Management's, has their favorites and they get first pick. Longtime, full time employees are clicky. Made some great pt friends. Hard to get days off.

Great place to work
A typical day would include getting started right away and attending to job responsibilities. The day throughout is fast-paced not leaving time to stand around, its a busy environment which is great for those who like to run around and stay busy. Management is really considerate towards its employees caring for their needs and respecting their rights. the overall culture is diverse throughout all locations and everyone is quite friendly.

My personal experience at this business firm
Great place for work and for a better career. However, the current managers are not bothered about the problems in the workplace that are faced by the employees. I strongly believe that they need to be improved in their current practices. Most importantly, managers have racism. Heavy discriminations and makes me difficult to work with a good mindset.

Fast paced, family oriented
Through the years of me working for Costco, I have been through alot both in and outside of work. Costco has never made me feel that I was unappreciated or asked me to do anything that was morally in question. The atmosphere is always changing, and as long as you can pull through the punches, it can be very rewarding. I habe been there 15 years and everyday is a new day.

Nice place to work
The best part about working at Costco are the co-workers. People are generally kind and you can easily make friends there. Lots of people end up on break together so you are never bored or alone.
Work hours are fine and everyone is treated fairly for the most part.

Opportunities of advancement are available and if you work there for a long time you can 100% make a liveable salary.

Fun experience that I cherish
A typical day at work would start with check in ,preparing snack cart equipped with paper towel,sanitizer, gloves,trays,snack cups and bags or boxes of the snack assigned to you.We also bring out a garbage bin for used snack cups and a mat to stand on. The snack station will be in same aisle as the snack being sold. We warmly greet customers proceed to provide nutrition, sales information and directions to the product being sold.We allow customers to grab a sample off the tray.Your snack station will be busiest on Friday and Saturday because that's when Costco is busiest. At the end of shift we wash trays and wipe down carts together before we checkout for the day. Most challenging part of the job was that your shift will change often it was hard for me to keep up with the schedule.I overall enjoyed the job very much.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Shift changes too often

poor and no experienced management.no respect to employees.
it is a divers workplace, but only those guys( you know what color) get opportunities to be promoted. they can do it by means. they do not care.
Lots of turn over in maintenance technicians.

Fast paced
Very fast paced, can be very stressful if you have anxiety, and is very demanding. But it is a secure job with patient, understanding co-workers. Very friendly environment for more extroverted or more active people. The hours are a lot, but a good 9-5 job (can be as early as 8 am to as late as 10 pm). Too many hours can be exhausting and overwhelming but if it is hours you want, hours you will get! Also very secure job.

Good place to work
Good place to work.

Fellow employees are clique-ish and can be stressful if sensitive.


Busy, busy place. if you enjoy a fast paced job to make your shift go by quick, this is the place for you.


Good insurance coverage and pension options even for part timers.


I would recommend trying out working at Costco if you're given the option.
