Great place to work! Would still be working there if my schedule didn’t conflict with my husbands. Aside from some gossip with a lot of the ladies, it was enjoyable for the most part. Certain cliques got fast tracked to supervisor/ manager when it wasn’t earned.
Pros
Raises based on hours worked. Pretty flexible with hours.
Cons
Sometimes you get beat out for posted based on seniority, not necessarily experience.

Wouldn't recommend, not very rewarding. Always worked extremely hard with it being unnoticed. Care more about sales than employees. Was bullied there, not only by employees but by management aswell

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.

Treat employees like slaves. Rude, disrespectful management. Very high stress for very low pay. You are hired on a temporary basis so, no job security if that is what is sought. The full time employees (with benefits) are for the most part, miserable. The company likes to put forward the appearance of a happy workplace but nothing could be further from the truth. Work here only if you need something short term.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything

At first, there is a lot of paperwork and there is a lot of information being thrown at you, but once all that is done there is less chaos. The day goes by quickly- it is a fast paced environment. My day included packing groceries, putting products away, folding clothes, helping bring in carts, promoting programs, and answering customer questions. I would have liked to stay on and become a cashier!

From management to colleagues, everyone at Costco tries to work in the most collaborative manner. People loving fast-paced work culture with good benefits, Costco is the answer.

This company awards loyalty, hard work and seniority. Good benefits, decent pay, and good management. Hours are not ideal as all day shifts are given to those with seniority.
Pros
Good workplace and benefits
Cons
must work evenings and weekends

Honestly one of the best places I have ever worked (seasonal position). Amazing management who really cares for their employees. Not a place to work at if you're looking for easy pay. You put in the work, you'll be respected. I would come back here in a heartbeat.

I worked at costco for the 2017 summer seasonal position. It was a good place to work for the summer as a student because of the good pay ($13 an hour and $17 on Sundays), but going back to school i would never be able to handle it. They give long hours even to seasonal employees who are expected to get the least amount, and it is so hard trying to get days off. I had to miss out on family weddings and trips because my time off wasn't approved.
Pros
good pay, friendly employees
Cons
long hours, hard to get time off, favouritism from management

I love my job. I look forward to seeing most of the people I work with every morning. We work hard but have a lot of fun. I have been working there for almost 16 years, but as time goes on, sometimes changes are made, and when you are use to many years of the same thing, sometimes change is a little harder to take.
Pros
great benefits, great bonuses, great hourly wage, free lunches quite often
Cons
Not alot of consistency.

starts with stocking, learnt how to do sales, managment was very supportive,co workers were helpful. Hardest part of the job was dealing with rude customers but Costco taught me how to handle it, most enjoyable part of the job is to help members with their technical questions

A typical day at work is busy and involves a lot of customer interaction. It definitely teaches you how to work in a dynamic environment with ever changing customer needs. The management seems to be efficient coming in with great experience. The hardest part is sometimes tiredness and boredom and the most enjoyable part is a friendly and productive work environment.
