You don't have an specific position, they will move you around. If you are not friend of management, they will send you to push carts. Pays well, but treat really bad.
Pros

I was trained in the beginning by three people. I have been a part of the team since I started there. I can ask questions and I always get an answer. It's fair, and I enjoy my job immensely.
Pros
Great pay, great benefits
Cons
Soooo many changes every day.

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.

If you are interested in working here, make sure you are physically capable as you will be standing and moving around on your feet the entire shift. Great benefits for sure though.

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.
Pros
Benefits and wage
Cons
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.
Pros
Costco benefits and salary are good
Cons
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
Pros
Competetive pay and room for advancement
Cons
Most likely always working weekends

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.
Pros
clean environment
Cons
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
Pros
Rewards for Christmas(Free Turkey), various meals for being safe in the workplace for extended periods.
Cons
Usual frustrations when dealing with the public
