I loved my time at costco spent 10+years opened new warehouse got to be a lead superviser on the front end. Loved all my staff great place to work they are loyal to there staff
Great company nice people all around
Job isn't bad if a culture of everyone pull together existed but the highest paid tend to do the least amount of work and seniority is key. If you start as a teenager it probably is a great opportunity and I can understand how people will defend the company ethos from that perspective. I am a pretty open and hard working individual and striving to have balance in this but in my experience the hard work will take years and years to pay off so would only recommend to someone young or in a stable situation financially looking for a second income to a household. I know decent hardworking people who have worked years there and are still part time, which should really indicate to you the priorities and balance of the employer/employee relationship.
Some good people and free memebership
Part time status infinitely looms
The management hierarchy makes it impossible to advance if management personally does not like you. Despite being an employee who has trained multiple new hires, taken on extra tasks, and proven to be up to the challenge, I got snubbed for promotions or new positions repeatedly. It's discouraging to work hard to train a new hire, just to watch them move up before you do because management simply doesn't like you. This coupled with the attitude of the employees makes for a dreadful work experience.
I’ve been working in Costco Heritage for several months, it’s not easy job at food court but I enjoyed it and I learned proper way of cleaning the machine like deep fried, cook and how to operate machine. A good place to work . The staff are so friendly. Salary wise fair enough and I liked most the benefits.
Costco is a great place for employees to get a steady advancement in terms of raises, the same can't be said about landing a full time or part time positions as they are highly sought after and based on seniority. Its a fast paced and highly engaging job on most days and can be highly rewarding if you get along with the staff. Its tough starting out with the company but pays off in the long run if you like the job. You can even switch departments or transfer to other Costcos around the world. Benefits: Good pension plan Health and dental care Steady raises and employee appreciation Good work culture Better than others Work/Life balance Cons: Fast paced and sometimes forgets their employees Can be stressful and intimidating to some individuals It can be confusing for employees if management is not coordinated Hours can be lacking if depending on contract
Terrible place to work. Terrible pay, terrible management. Such a joke. Pretty much a union yet...none of the benefits that come with being part of a union. Your current knowledge and worth don't matter. But hey, stick it out long enough and you too can become Costco Management - no formal training required!! Just hang out long enough!! The pay starts well below anywhere else. Go elsewhere. Anywhere.
Great benefits and a competitive wage you may have to start as part time but eventually you'll get full time they give you paid vacations, as a new hire you get a minimum of 25 hours a week but have the ability to pick up extra hours in other departments as long as you dont go over 40 hours in a week, the give you 8 sick days a year as well as 5 family days .
-easy access to start and end the day -approachable staff in the work environment -organized plans structured precisely and efficiently -able to communicate with other employees to gain guidance -time management not well maintained with certain employees. with further communication was able to give feedback and resolve conflicts. - working with a wide variety of individuals -learning from others with experience and applying my knowledge in the workplace -building friendships
