I worked at Costco for the Christmas season, and honestly it was horrible. I was a front end packer and it was really hard work. I also spent hours outside in the dark in the pouring rain collecting carts. Would come back inside soaked to the bone. Working hear was like 20 grit sandpaper on my mental health. 10/10 not a good time.

Not enough opportunities, they hire colored people but they don't get to advance in time. Some managers are nothing but favoritism all the way and have such a mood swing that you can't dance with their moods

No matter how hard you work, promotion is earned after time not effort. In the pharmacy, new hires carry the heaviest burden when it comes to answering the phone, intake and pickup with little to no training.

Great management and leadership, great staff that are willing to teach and work with you, and lots of room to grow. Costco has different shifts for your lifestyle and has great benefits and wages.

Consistantly busy, incredibly un pleasant management, no flexibility in scheduling, low base wage. If you put in a number of years your pay becomes quite good, and the benefits are good, but the actual work environment is incredibly toxic.
Pros
free membership
Cons
no scheduling flexibility

Excellent place to work, but pointlessly inflexible with regards to scheduling. They will not work around anything, and even if they can only give you the minimum 25 hours of work per week, you will work those 25 hours over five days at inconsistent times of the day. Other than that, for what it is it's great.
Pros
Great benefits, energetic culture, no nonsense attitude
Cons
Inflexible schedule, pointless rules abound

If you are thinking of getting a job at Costco definitely get a job in front end. The other sections seem a bit hectic and not put together properly. Not for people who get stressed easily.

The job grew exceedingly difficult to complete, management kept adding more and more responsibilities until it wasn't possible for one person to complete their tasks.
Pros
Hot dogs are cheap, good benefits and life insurance.
Cons
Very sporadic hours

Most days were fast paced. Scheduling was frequently inflexible, understandably due to nature of employment (members of the team with more seniority filled earlier shifts with junior members getting short or late-hour shifts). Management, though friendly, was often too busy to immediately discus employee concerns. High turn-over of staff (especially during seasonal hiring) led to few meaningful interactions between staff.
Pros
Free membership
Cons
Cement flooring was hard on joints/back.

Working in the pharmacy there were some people who truly did not want to be there and made it a toxic work environment. But when those select few were not there work was great and the days went by very fast and fellow employees are very social.

Everyone tries to help one another. Somewhat flexible hours. Everything goes by seniority there. Management would panic easily under pressure. Days off request are a little difficult to fill out

I started of as a fuel dock attendant, then became a fishing guide in the peek season. Then became a second key holder, with involved filling of contracts, end of day deposits, all the locking and securing of the building at the end of day.
Pros
Interacting with the public and tourist
Cons
Not very good pay
