Job duties varied; cashing, packing, collecting carts before closing. Never a boring day at work. Management was very friendly and understanding; they wanted me to become permanent , but due to school I could not accept their job offering.

There will always be something to do. Most likely will have to do various positions and that could also be a benefit. Staff and management is overall nice.

Costco is very fast paced and you're working around a lot of people. You should be ready to interact with many people in a day and be confident in yourself. Customers will usually ask for something and don't like to hear the word 'no' when you don't have it. Not giving a confident answer leads to more work, and more dissatisfaction from the customer proving to them you don't have what they want.

It's a good place to work when you're a student and only want to work during seasonal periods, such as the holidays and during the summer. They have a student option for working as well for university students if you're enrolled in 3 or more classes which is pretty beneficial.

A good job for those going through college or those who love retail. The days are long, and some of the "old guard" can be quite harsh. The youth making careers out of retail is generally much more fun to work with. Getting time off is difficult, and you will not get weekends off. Expect days off to be mid week.
Pros
Good wages for retail
Cons
Lack of flexible hours

Its a good place to work but being regular part time you don't get enough hour of work. People who work here are nice and cooperative and easy to talk.

good company that gives employees the opportunity to gain extra money on Sundays ($4) extra per hour. I really loved this job except for when I had to work up until 11:00 pm.

Costco was a great place to work. There were many challenges as well as opportunities for employees to get a chance to exceed their skills as employees. The company was very flexible with employees and lent a helping hand when a problem arose.

based on seniority, very nice people that work there however if youre a male, be prepared to be used for very physical shifts. they would get me to lift heavy couches, fridges, tvs, etc but i didnt mind. have to bring in buggys at the end of each night and sometimes throughtout the day.
Pros
time goes by quickly
Cons
very very busy

I enjoyed working at Costco and would have continued to work there, but I was hired as a seasonal worker and my term ended. Co-workers, managers, and other staff were easy to work and interact with. When I informed them that I needed a day off to study for an exam, they changed my schedule without hassle and allowed me to focus on studying. They were good to me.
Pros
flexible hours
Cons
only seasonal
