My time with Costco was great. I took time off when I had a child and even though I was pregnant they took very good care of me as an employee. Now my child is grown and I would like to return to the workforce.

great place to work, you meet lots of people during your shifts, management is also great, depending on some situations the job is very very stressful and require extra work on your part to keep the company up to par, includes cross training in many different areas but this isn't always the best for you, its the best for the company.

Very fast paced No room for error Management ok Hardest part keeping up in mornings and during busy times Some great coworkers. Overall not bad place but long intervals between raises takes a long time for very small amount. Can take over a yr or more.
Great people, efficient lots to learn if given the chance
Raises, seniority (length of time working there)trumps qualifications
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 12 May 2017
As my first job, Costco was a positive experience. Initially I had expected a more rigid and a very labor-work orientated job, but my manager and supervisors always ensured my well-being and welcomed me into the work force at Costco.
During the day, I would help pack the merchandise into the carts for customers and shelf products. At the end of the day, I would organize carts and unwanted products.
I gained more confidence in greeting and welcoming people. Also, I became more punctual with getting ready for work on time.
The most difficult part of the job is when the lines at the cash registar till become very long since I would have to constantly help packing the merchandise. Since the lines were long, there was a pressure to get the job done faster.
The most enjoyable part of the job is when a customer compliments me for my work.
Full-Time and Part-Time Cashier and Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 28 January 2017
I have worked at Costco for 2 years now. The job is fast past and keeps you of a chair for as long as possible. Managers aren't the best but that is what happenes when management hires friends and family that don't have management skills.

Stocker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 4 January 2017
early mornings for stockers are easy to get used to, the workers and management are helpful and fair. good hard work was always recognized and praised. fast paced work means that as you are rarely working in the vicinity of others it is hard to get to know others on a personal level.
