Hard to say
Cash Assistant/Merchandising Split (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON11 January 2019
Overall, my experience working at Costco was decent. Generally speaking, the work was difficult at first to complete in the given time, but got better with time. Job security is great, hours are very consistent (31 hours every single week for me as a part-timer). The management at my location was easily the worst part of the job. Most of the managers had very little clue as to what they were doing, rarely ever praised employees for excellent work but were quick to talk down whenever the job wasnt done properly/on time. In conclusion, definitely a good job if you need something very consistent (i wouldnt recommend the Central Mississauga location, however).

Great at the beginning but gradually got worst
Cashier/Customer Service (Current Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 November 2018
Really hard to stay happy working at Costco. The management don't appreciate the hard working employees and enable the ones that don't work hard. People are encouraged to do the wrong things in order to move up in the company. Managers are really inhuman, dont ask or care much about their employees. Management display their favourites any chance they get. They don't help to encourage students to work and go to school fulltime. The members are allowed to yell at speak to employees anyway they feel because of the fee for their cards. Its a really toxic place to work.
Pros
RRSP contributions
Cons
Horrible Management

Fast Food Services
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.
