A typical day would include getting started right away and attending to job responsibilities. The day throughout is fast-paced not leaving time to stand around, its a busy environment which is great for those who like to run around and stay busy. Management is really considerate towards its employees caring for their needs and respecting their rights. the overall culture is diverse throughout all locations and everyone is quite friendly.

Great place to work, it would have taken to long for me to get to a decent salary. Found a better paying position. The manager also informed me that it would take to long to advance to a management position.

Management is great Learned about advertising sale products and merchandising it at the right location in the warehouse(Attract customers) I would attend work for 5am and get the store ready before it opens. Stack products on a pallet to meet store standards, Move sale products to locations in the store that would grab customers attention, Clean working area, Bale the Cardboard box baler, help customers find products and also help customers load heavy items in their vehicle .

Great place to work, pays great, people are great. To advance requires quite a bit of seniority which is hard since a lot of people have been working there for 10+ years. At times there can be too many managers that you might not know who is above who.

This company is very good to work with. Your have a chance to grow and increase your pay if you work enough hours to raise. The important thing, they have benefit for both part - time and full -time employees.

A typical day at work would be arriving before 11:00am, going to the PWC;s office, finding out what to do, setting up the table for the demonstration wearing gloves & hair net, at the end of each demonstration you have to sanitize everything!!!!! Or else the company will be sued!!!!!
Pros
Work experience.
Cons
Pretty much too much sanitation!

constantly micromanaged and under appreciated. Typical day is a nightshift consisting of stacking shelves and reorganizing or re-allocating palettes for the next day.

Overall, Costco is a very good company to work for (the pay is great, benefits are even better) but most managers play favourites as many people are related at this warehouse. Also, not the best hours starting out as you'd have to stay until 11-11:30pm! Takes long to move up in the company as they go by seniority so anyone in the warehouse can apply to any job, even if they're not qualified.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits
Cons
Not the best hours, promoted by seniority
