Strenuous work however it was great to stay in shape. As long as you worked hard and did not complain about anything being too heavy management was quite good.
I have been employed for many years at Costco. I have worked in several departments. My experience here has been life changing. I make a decent living, have great benefits and love my Costco family. Thank you Costco, for making my life better, happier and stable.
There is a lot of opportunity to grow your skills within the company, there are plenty of department to transfer to. The workplace is full of friendly and helping co-workers to help you with your experience.
You only get ahead by being a brown nosing gossip. Hard work and honesty are not appreciated. Rude members are allowed to do or say anything to employees. Some coworkers and most of management likes to gossip and spread stuff around. The only really good thing about Costco and working there is the pay and the benefits. Job is high stress and management needs a big overhaul, in fact the higher up you go the worse it is (for the most part). Most of the managers have no people skills. Praise is rarely given, but mistakes are quick to be pointed out. Saint John warehouse is full of sexism towards both men and women. There are too many husband/wife, BF/GF couples and relatives working at this location and favouritism shows. Work is very physical and requires lots of standing but overall not bad. Work/life balance isn't great, good hours given to favourite employees.
Good pay, good benefits
see review, lots of these...
I wake up early to get the kitchen ready of the never ending wave of customers. This part of Costco is definitely a faster paced part. No time for stopping. It certainly doesn't get boring there though, anything can happen and my co-workers were very nice and exciting.
Kept me active, never boring, good supervisor
A lot of hard work, lots of heavy lifting, never stops, could get too busy at times
It is a great place to work, I would recommend anyone to work there. I enjoyed all of the jobs they got me to do. I liked the hours, my co-workers, my pay, my managers. I was sad I was only a seasonal worker. I hope to get rehired in the spring.
Great hours, great pay, close to home
Good workplace environment and great benefits. I learned how to provide great customer service and work in a team. Management was great and very accommodating.
Great Management, High Paced.
Fun place to work, Managers are nice. It was very organized so everybody knew what to do with little confusion.
I would arrive at work at 5 am, my manager would give me a plan I would stock all items in my given section and insert new items as they arrived using a pallet jack. Once the store opened I would either stay on the floor building displays for new items, or if a truck was late I would stock once it arrived. Otherwise I would pack groceries into carts, or sometimes push carts in the lot.
Free Costco membership
Costco was a great place to work, they were helpful with working around my schedule, giving me reasonable hours and job security was good. I decided to leave so I could start looking for work in the Electrical field.
A typical day would be me helping members to pack their products into their carts. At times I worked on cash. I have also been at the front door greeting members and at the "out" door to check receipts. I also have been in the clothing department folding and tiding up the merchandise. I also put products back on the shelves where they belong. I learned how to use a cash register and to work quickly. The hardest part was not always knowing where things went cause they are always moving things around. The most enjoyable part was the people I got to know and work with.
learning new things and being a part of the team
not knowing what my hours were gonna be from week to week
