Good place to work. Fellow employees are clique-ish and can be stressful if sensitive. Busy, busy place. if you enjoy a fast paced job to make your shift go by quick, this is the place for you. Good insurance coverage and pension options even for part timers. I would recommend trying out working at Costco if you're given the option.

my time spent at costco was carrying full timers who had seniority to slack off where ever and when ever they pleased. the work gets pushed onto the seasonal and part time employees. management was awful.

Satrt at 4:30 am. Drive fork lift dropping product for the stockers to stock. putting stock in the steel to get store ready for open. Lots of friendly people. The job is retail after open I like working with the people and the job. Hardest part of the job is not having weekends off. Bets part of the job is starting early and getting out early.
Pros

Cons
Not haveing weekends off

Lack of professionalism within management. Heavy and repetitive workload falls on hardest working. managers push these people day in, day out to do more with less time.
Pros
free membership
Cons
management & scheduling - always busy

Competitive salary, good benefits, regular breaks, good training and regular raises. Plenty of opportunity for advancement and good equality. Typically only one weekend day off (when full-time) and 0 weekend days off (when part-time)- but that's retail. Opportunity for relocation.
Cons
Must work weekends

They only allow students to work during the summer months and pay decent hourly wages to students. It allowed me to save up money for the next school year without worrying about working full time while in school.
Pros
higher wages
Cons
Long Hours

Great pay and benefits but the work environment is terrible. Management is always on your case about up selling and flow of scanned items on your till and many more. A lot of favouritism, I mean it is everywhere. As well as management does not back up their own employees and leave them paying for what happened to the customer even if its the customers fault. Will never work for them again. It is very stressful working there too, they are not considerate for their employees with health issues.
Pros
salary
Cons
Stressful, and frusterating

Costco has a great sense of community, and treats their employees remarkably well. There is plenty of opportunity to grow from within, and even part-time workers are offered benefits of the job rather than only being set aside for full-timers.

This place is extremely fast paced but that makes the day go by quickly. You make extra money on Sundays and you can stay there for years. Most people had been working there for more than 10 years.

I began at costco as a cashier and moved into a maintenance position to gain a permanent position, my position allows me a lot of freedom and a lot of work that can be challenging and fun. I work in a very small department and communication within our department is very important, we all get along very well. Our hours vary and can start as early as 5am and go to 11pm.
