Costco was definitely a great employer and it's principles and the way the company treats it's employees are second to none. The only downfall is some of the managers who don't follow the same methodologies as the company itself. You always run into bad apples but when it's a manager who can change your whole day, it gets rough sometimes. Favouritism was the biggest issue at the Richmond Hill location.

The only problem was the management. They didn't care, some employees would leave in the middle of their shift and management wouldn't notice even if it was a very busy day.

You may get the opportunity to work in different positions at Costco. This allows you to expand your connection by meeting new managers and learn from other departments.

Costco is good company if you are just starting off as a student, stay at home parent or retired. My pros: Good pay with benefits. Up to I think 5 weeks vacation time. You get good bereavement for a week. You get sick leave and disability. My cons: Hard to get in or keep. Too boring and repetitive. No employee discounts not even for Resto. Very few positions are available. Not very good work life balance. .

The hourly/workload ratio is absolute ludicrous at this company. Seemed to me like certain departments would clearly be doing less work and are getting paid the same (if not more than others). Very unprofessional people working there and most higher end managers seemed to be pretending to care about the work and did not take it as serious as they should have been.
Pros
Paid 15 min breaks
Cons
Zero shift flexibility, poor hours

The pay and job security is top notch when compared to other similar jobs like wal-mart. There are plenty of opportunities to advance, and large pool of jobs (bakery, cashier, meat, forklift driver, cafeteria, tire shop) that are easily accessible should you wish to change
Pros
secure
Cons
physically tiring

a busy day at work where I learn to be initiative with the work that the crew cannot handle. I meet assigned task on time with cooperation with other coworkers. My coworkers are in need of leadership where I sometime take over and the hardest part of the job is where coworkers does not cooperate when its busy. The most enjoyable part of the job is when preparing the menu to serve because its quiet at that time.
