Some of the best people I have ever worked with, but most of the upper managers were absolute trash. My lmediate managers were great but they burn them out fast. Assistant manager and store managers were the worst. If you dont like family time this is the place for you. Oh yea and dont think for yourself they hate that.
Worked in Meat Dept. specifically. Pretty good environment, moved on because I'd had enough of being in the cold all day and around the loud machines. Also wanted to move on from shift work. They pick up lots of seasonal workers during the summer and Christmas holidays, which is great for those in school looking for extra money.
Extra pay on Sundays
No overtime if weeks are scheduled back-to-back
You will not see the benefits of working at Costco unless you plan to work there for the rest of your life. They give you horrible shifts that you cant plan around and sometimes they stop giving you shifts all together. (I didnt work for 4 months, blew through all my savings, and they ignored me every time I asked for hours and could never say when they would be giving hours again) Managers are unreasonable, they send you for your break when its convenient for them (usually 1 hour into a 5 hour shift) You will get in trouble if you dont meet their unreasonable quotas such as upgrades but also if you make a member mad from pushing too much youre in trouble. They act like you're at fault for not being able to do it when there are so many other factors involved like how you will probably never have a packer. you will be degraded by members and you will never receive any support from the superiors, member service means you are always in the wrong! Long time employees are more important than newer ones, you will ALWAYS miss out on opportunities over them and there will never be anything left for them to give you. My tip, do not work front end it seems like the best job but it is the worst.. only work in Costco if you can get a job in the bakery!
Paid more than minimum wage
Bad shifts, zero work life balance, unpredictable, unreasonable, you get degraded

Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Costco Wholesale?
Biggest thing about working for Costco, is it depends on the region,. The store location I worked at hired very young students, and the management treated them poorly. Girls and boys were disciplined if they were even seen speaking to one another. FORMALLY disciplined. Not violating any policies and still written up for simply talking to the coworker while you were working the same till or passing by one another in the aisle. My best advice, shop at the Costco before you apply. The atmosphere for a shopper is pretty much what you will experience working there.
Pay, and advancement.
Heavy lifting and standing on hard concrete all shift.
Like you all know, Costco is a very busy place to work and customer service is the number priority of the company. A typical day at work is going into work and helping the customers by putting them through. I learnt the beauty of excellent customer service. Management is very good as they are easily accessible . They have a very good workplace culture as you have a good diversity of nations working there and everybody works as a team. There was no hard part to my job. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you render wonderful customer service.
Costco was a pretty good place to work, if you don't mind dealing with a lot of people all day, every day. It is constantly very busy. I worked as a cashier, dealing directly with customers. This involved scanning and packing items generally, but also putting away returns, folding clothes, mopping, and facing aisles. It depends on how busy it is during various times of the day. Most of the managers were pretty pleasant, though there is an open-door policy in place if there are any issues. There were opportunities for advancement occasionally as well.
Standing on concrete all day, lots of people
a typical day * I would go around the store asking those who might not have initially signed up for an American Express card and asked if they would like to do it free of cost and telling them the benefits of doing so. whatI learned * your first no doen't mean your not good at what you do, maybe they are just not interested management * great person to work with, truly understanding co-workers * hard to adjust to, everyone has their own issue when dealing with a type of position and life can get in the way hardest part * was consistently walking around and not giving up and no on in the store, talking to same person I talk to previous week most enoyable part * it is keeps one busy
Couldn't stay due to personal financial issues
It is a relaxed place to work, although not enough that a person can be lazy. People are always friendly and willing to jump in and help from other departments. There is always room for advancement which is really nice, there is almost a constant opportunity to learn more and improve.
