Liquor Store Manager (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 November 2018
Costco is a rarity in today's workplace culture, in that they actually care about their employees. Costco staff work hard, but are rewarded appropriately, and longevity is also rewarded. It's clear with the low turnover that Costco knows how to treat it's people.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 September 2018
Lots of heaving lifting, everything at Costco is large scale. hard working fast pace environment. They have a great benefits package and lots of opportunity to grow. They care about their employees and you don't feel like a number. I found it to be a good company to work for overall.
Deli Clerk (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 14 July 2018
Too much work and not enough workers. Very cold environment. If you didnt work fast enough, you got yelled at. Was 6 months pregnant at the time and had taken 2 sick days over a month and a half period and that resulted in termination. Employees are amazing but the management sucks.
Morning Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 June 2018
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.
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.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 7 May 2018
A typical day at work would be come in an hour before closing clean up my work area then after the store closed we would unload the trucks and stock. Management was terrible they would pick favorites and were very rude to pretty much every one. They are always understaffed so work never gets done and the employees take the blame for not working hard enough.

The work that done consist of alot of labour hard and physical work and I have to be on toes at all time when putting out every morning. At the end it all look good when finished. The management is good and they know what they are doing
Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 January 2018
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.

Costco has a good work atmosphere and is a great place for students to work as they are really flexible and also have an CSRP program which allows students to have days off when needed for extra studying time.
Certified Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 9 September 2017
It was a great job when it came to benefits and a retirement savings plan. but I did not like how as a tire tech I needed to do a bunch of other departments jobs as well. I did not realize this applying for the job
