I worked in the food service part of Costco and honestly it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Sure you can get absolutely slammed and running around for hours on end but the breaks really help divide it up and my co workers were all fantastic. Very collaborative and I miss many of my co workers.
Costco is never slow. A typical day consists of preparing baked goods, and making sure the workplace is clean. The work is hard but most people are upbeat, and managers work to boost moral. The hardest part of the job is the physical strain; heavy lifting is required. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting to taste new products.
The only downside of this time at Costco was the active participation of keeping the warehouse in great working cleanliness. Very understaff clothing department back in 2008; but that has since bee changed as I am now only a shopping member of this company.
A typical day at work would be serving customers on cash, packing the shopping carts with merchandise, returning merchandise not purchased to proper location, assisting costumers in finding merchandise, greeting incoming and outgoing customers at the door, and checking receipts. It is a very fast pace job that requires high energy. The hardest part of the job is dealing with unhappy customers and the most enjoyable part is dealing with happy/pleasant customers.
Unfortunately getting full time work or even hours at Costco is a long process. If you could get full time hours quicker, it would be an excellent place to work.
Over half of their staff is part time. Most want full time
A good place to work, very fast paced. The very early morning hours are tough, still trying to adjust. Not getting the hours I would like , but taking what I can get. Pharmacy manager is great and co-workers are very nice.
Nice co-workers, Free Membership
Not enough hours
I met lots of people there and over all enjoyed my time at Costco. However the management were not too understanding when it came to scheduling shifts. They required you give them your availability status but then would schedule you to work when you said you weren't available.
Were not understanding about when I was not available to work because of school.
8.5 hour shifts little bit of everything you can do something different every day management was good to work with countless co-workers very flexible when you needed time off
good work environment
long shifts on a hard concrete floor hurts back and feet
I enjoyed my time working at Costco but I felt I was overlooked for advancement opportunities. The criteria for advancement kept moving and I left for a better/higher paying job. But would recommend this place to others.
Good employees, frendly enviornment
On my feet for the whole shift.
I offer current and new members information on the programs and services available to members and the advantages of these programs and services. I work both at the membership counter and I approach members at the cash both using my own initiative and when called upon by the cashiers. The best part of my job is the interaction between myself and the members. I am a "people person" by nature and I have fun and enjoy talking to people and explaining what membership in Costco has to offer. I appreciate the feedback from fellow employees, management and the members. Sometimes members do not appreciate the scope of my job and what it entails but most are considerate, understand and want to learn about their membership and how it can be enhanced.
working with people and being appreciated for the work i perform.
extended hours on your feet.
