Costco is a good place to work and learn. But at Costco location in Langley, BC. Some of the people make it worst. Specially Pharmacy Manager she is so unexperienced and do not know how to run the things and because of this the senior people are not cooperative at all with new employees. They dont like new people to work. I dont know about other costco locations but the one in langley BC dont joint this one if you are pharmacy professionals.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Poor management

All about favourites, you can work your butt off and get no where unless they like you. Micro management and when you make a mistake everyone knows and hears about it.
Pros
Awesome hours

Once you arrive at work and are ready I would start preparing merchandise for shipping. I wrapped pallets of merchandise. Would take my breaks and lunch on time. Enjoyed meeting new staff members. enjoyed the fact that when overtime was required it was added on at the start of the day and not at the end.

When I worked at Costco I was working 5 days a week and I absolutely enjoyed it. Although it did take away my summer because I was working so much I wouldn’t take it back. It was a really great experience for me to have worked there.
Pros
Lots of hours
Cons
Hard to balance life with Costco because I worked so much

Lots of heavy lifting required in a short amount of time. Felt that the pay was too low for the work being done. Everyone was in the same boat so I'd always feel guilty to ask coworkers for help, knowing that they were struggling as well. Management was unclear, not sure who my direct supervisors were.

Depending on what you are hired for, the workplace culture across the board is actually very good, and people want to help each other out for the most part. If this is early on in your career, a highly valued place to learn and advance.
Pros
Great Staff, Easy work, Good Exercise
Cons
Long hours

The job itself is fast paced and a fun environment. All the long timers are very very nice and help you out wherever you need it. The trouble is time off. They aren’t willing to give you any weekends off, so if you need a weekend off try to switch it yourself or as the long timers say.... call in sick. The wage is just above minimum so don’t think you go in there and get paid big bucks....
Pros
Great people
Cons
Pay is ok

The work required was not only not specified in the interview but also when requested to work shift work in a rotation, the rotation aspect was not respected.

Great place to work if you don't have much experience in other fields. If management decides they don't like you you'll constantly be torn down whenever they feel the opportunity.

Costco has a great atmosphere to work in. Management was great, the employees, in general, were really great as well. I got to experience a variety of positions there as well.

While working at Costco, I was given the right amount of training that was needed. The supervisor was always present when they were needed. Although it was a past paced work place I never felt rushed.

Costco is a very go go go place, so the day passes quickly. Coworkers are great and management is usually okay. There is a ton of opportunity to go up in the company, which is great for ambitious people, but you can also stay where you are comfortable.
Pros
flexible hours, free membership, benefits
Cons
very busy, hard work
