My experience at Costco wasn’t the best. I did meet some nice people but I also met people that were not kind who had seniority and territorial and not very helpful. I’ve been injured three times within the two years I worked there. I’ve switched many departments and you have to be really strong and always fast so it was stressful. I had some good managers and some not so good managers who were unprofessional and yell at your misunderstandings. So I have mixed feelings on the place.
Benefits, guaranteed hours, paid vacation
Unfriendly work environment, lack of training
Very fast paced and stressful for a first job. Manager was very much by the books which was great but she also had a bit of an attitude if you messed up, same with my co-workers. They also didn’t speak much English and were hard to understand at times which led to frustration for everyone involved. Hours were a little ridiculous (anywhere from 5am-11pm). Overall didn’t enjoy the experience and quit after about a month and a half
Decent pay, good benefits, Members were generally nice, free membership
Stressful, irregular schedules, rude co-workers.
Great atmosphere Fair management Great benefit Loved it. Left to return to family, hopefully will eventually get rehired at another Costco in Ontario. One of the best places I've worked. Opportunity to learn and advance, always possible, with Costco.
Working for Costco was stressful especially in Membership, You would get rude customers and un patience customers but you always have to keep a happy fake face on, make sure your giving them 100% of your time and listen whatever they need to help them fully even though you know you want to but you have to because it's our job.
Good place to work if you plan on making a career out of it, otherwise it's hard to move up. Raises and advances pretty much depend solely on seniority and don't take skill or ability into account. As nice as it is to know your loyalty will be appreciated, it's unfortunate that hard work and quality performance isn't valued as much as simply staying with the company for a longer time.
Costco is a good company to work for because of good benefits, fair pay, and mostly great people to work with. Met plenty of nice people but also awful ones too. Management, at least at the location I was working at, is absolutely terrible. I have seen way too much favoritism, unfairness, picking on particular people, harassment (physical and psychological), unnecessary rudeness, double standards, etc. There was very few down-to-earth managers that were actually doing their jobs the right way. Also, the floor kills your feet!
Good benefits, fair pay, mostly great people to work with.
Awful management resulting in bad work environment at times.
Costco, in short, is a great place to work. The systems and priorities put in place by upper management establish an energetic and "all together" atmosphere filled with awesome benefits, frequent wage raises, and a regular focus on cooperation and Teamwork. These are areas that Costco excels at. To be totally fair there are certain blemishes one can expect working in any retail environment and Costco is unfortunately not immune to them. Expect a tense environment during holiday seasons, expect some grumpy coworkers from time to time, expect some questionable decisions from leadership, expect what you would normally get working with human beings. But with that said, Costco does an impressive job at resolving conflict and recognizing this human element of the modern workplace. Often management will follow up a mistake with six or seven good decisions to follow it. So for every blemish, Costco may have, you can expect the Integrity to recognize and smooth over those blemishes.
Many benefits, Regular raises, Team focused, improvement focused
Consists of human beings who make human mistakes
