Culture was decent enough. Management was friendly, helpful, and accommodating. However it is a very busy environment, be ready to work hard and fast with lots of lifting. I ended up working on my knees quite a bit to stock the lower shelves as well.
Great place with good people. Lower starting wage but if you stay you are treated well and there are many chances for advancement. Shifts in seasonal sales can cause hour shortage.
Costco pays amazingly good, yes... but they treat you like a dog... get worst if you are immigrant. Just check how many Managers are Immigrants? People are over stress and management are the worst ones... protecting their loved ones and giving the tuff for the rest.
Benefits and wage
Terrible schedule, horrible management
Plenty of nice people to work beside. I was a seasonal employee, and in my experience as such there was a high sense of competitiveness between other seasonal employees. Mainly due to the fact that at the end of the season they would only keep 1 or 2 of them.
I liked the hours of Costco for me. I worked the 6 am to store open shift. I tried my best to remember the stock and inventory items as to where to position them daily for the fork lift operators in the general sales floor. I had just completed my 6 months of probation and had a hard pass with my supervisor and within a week I was pulled into the store managers office and told I just wasn't getting it about placement and the ins and out of stock receiving. Needless to say within a week of this incident I was given a full time opportunity to a job I loved and took the opportunity.
Costco benefits and salary are good
One Manager spoiled it for me.
The pay is great for standing in 1 spot and putting groceries into a shopping cart for a while. Oh and sometimes you have to go and spend time outside collecting carts which kills time pretty fast. Not much to complain about other than picky customers but you can always hand them off to a supervisor
Competetive pay and room for advancement
Most likely always working weekends
Good opportunity for advancement within the company locally or internationally. Clean work environment. Staff and management are friendly When you put in the time wage is good Benefits package
advancement opportunities, good wage
Management is great to work with. You meet a lot of good people who work and shop there. Personal skills will dictate how you percive the vast amount of duties and members that you interact daily.
Relaxed environment, great start wages, great opportunities to advance
Mentally demanding atmosphere, fast pace
Costco is a great company that will show you many innovative ways to how create a "treasure hunt" of products. Costco has the Costco way and is difficult to have them to anything out of the norm. They are a proven company that does very well for their shareholders.
they will not take advice from anyone who is not management
The day starts: Swipe the employee card in,go retrieve carts, assist with heavy loads , pick up garbage in parking lot , cart corrals etc etc. At the last two hours of my shift I may get to operate a forklift and unload stock from the steel racking or stock shelves. I have also been trained to work at the Gas Station,Tire Shop,and the Propane Center. Management: Efficient,and multitasking Workplace Culture: As positive as can be due to some Unique individuals , otherwise most employees are exhausted from fast paced /effort work duties. Hardest Part of Job: Keeping a Smiling face and good demur when dealing with uncooperative or disrespectful members. Most Enjoyable part of the Job: The Company Infrastructure for possible advancement
Rewards for Christmas(Free Turkey), various meals for being safe in the workplace for extended periods.
Usual frustrations when dealing with the public
Working at Costco is a great opportunity. You learn new skills that are unexpected, ex:even as a grocery packer, critical thinking skills are a must in this line of work, you will learn quickly!
great people to work with, good benefits
this type of work can be hard on back, feet and wrists
