Food Service Clerk (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 November 2018
- fast pace environment
- friendly team setting
- can be overwhelming at times when there are a lot of people in line to service

Throughout the time I have worked there, I have taken the whole experience as a lesson, being; you need to do things you don't want to do now so you won't have to do it for the rest of your life thereafter.

Produce Evening Stocker (former) (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 October 2018
Great place to work with a friendly staff and great amount of hours. Always willing to help you when you need the support from your coworkers. Management improves your ability to work if you give them the leeway to learn.

Great place but sometimes stressful
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON28 September 2018
The pay is great, there are good benefits that come with it. But management can be very pushy & not understanding most of the time. You are able to transfer to other stores or other departments if you'd like a change. The Stores are very busy so be prepared to work hard.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Busy stores

Costco is like working for any other minimum wage paying job - better benefits
Cashier (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON26 September 2018
the benefits are great. Its like working anywhere else. management is not the greatest. they give you the idea that they care when they really don't. Advancement in this company seems to be racially charged. The employees are great, they make it hard to have a bad day.
Pros
the benefits packages
Cons
work every weekend. minimum wage

Seniority trumps all.
Foklift Operator/Merchandise (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON4 January 2018
If you don't plan on being there for the rest of your life then don't bother. You start at minimum wage and get a 50 cent raise every 800 hours worked. On top of that those that have earned the top scale wage will continuously find ways to do less and less work making it seem like you're getting payed less to do more than other people. Very frustrating system.
Pros
paid break
Cons
random scheduling, sloppy management

Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON12 October 2017
I worked in the sampling department, and it wasn't the best experience the breaks were awful but it was an easy job it doesn't require a lot of work but it is eight hours of standing with just one break.

Service Deli Clerk (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 September 2017
This job pushes you to your limits and expects a lot from each employee. This job entitled me to hard work, but felt rewarding as Costco shows its appreciation to its employees.

Decent, but Insecure Labour
Stocker (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON25 August 2017
Decent job, however after the probationary period management decided to lay off all the seasonal employees to cut costs, and without prior notice. Otherwise the managers and other employees were very helpful with training, and never made any unreasonable demands out of the seasonal (new part-time) workers.
Pros
Cheap lunches, good pay, fun work environment, free membership
Cons
Long hours, insecure employment, membership valid through employment only
