If you're a student, you won't get far and they won't take care of you. Management team pushes ridiculous things on you and blow things out of proportion. They hire you under the notion of "part-time student and full-time during peak holidays" but end up doing quite the opposite of that.

Making sure our members are taken care of is the most important part of our daily job. We need to make sure product is available and easily accessible to our members. The work environment is quite enjoyable, very much like a family away from home. I'd say that is my most enjoyable part of the job. It makes it feel less like work. There is always something to do, and when it is busy we are required to prioritize order of importance for making our product on the sales floor accessible and tidy. Sometimes this can be hard because you are pulled in different directions, so learning to do one thing at a time is important, but can be hard to follow.

I spent most of my day stocking produce and found that most of the employees were fun to be around, although the warehouse manager could be quite intimidating. Other than that, everything was okay.
Pros
Free lunch sometimes.
Cons
low pay

Working at Costco Wholesales was quite the experience, had my first anxiety attack there. It starts off paying fairly well, if you are part-time you would generally work three eight hour shifts and couple of four to five hour shifts. Working there was a lot of fun at times, there's a great little community between all the employee's and everyone knows each other. During the holiday season, Costco can get incredibly busy and that can lead to lunch rushes or dinner rushes and those are very difficult at times.
Pros
Three breaks, two fifteen minute which you are paid for and one thirty minute break which you are not paid for.
Cons
Depends on which area you work in but it can be really stressful and a lot can happen at once, especially during the holiday season.

It was a very comfortable place to work in, the hardest part was dealing with grouchy customers because the food wouldn't be ready.

If you haven't worked there for many years, then you won't ever fit in. The rate of pay needs to be re-evaluated. The job itself was very fun.
