I did not actually work for Costco itself, merely working in the building for a independent company. but the staff were helpful, the management diligent.

The people you work with are very nice, and there quite a lot of opportunities to advance and learn new things, but at the particular Costco I worked at the amount of work to the amount of people there is isn't fairly well balanced, half the time work meant for the night crew is left for the morning crew and vice versa. Otherwise a great place with decent pay and good benefits.

Stressful and with no benefit at all. Everyone works really hard in Costco especially the younger generation and they don't even get free lunch. I was working for CDS Company within the Costco and had no benefit what so ever. After a year gone by, they gave us 10 cents raise only. That was laughable!!
Pros
No free anything!
Cons
Not enough hours. Everyone is part time and always we were short of staff.

Typical day at work was average. Consisted of busy work and repetitive tasks, but non of it was hard. Training lacked in many aspects and management was often hard to seek if you needed assistance. Most enjoyable part of the job was fellow employees.
Pros
Easy work
Cons
Odd hours

Hard to get full time and not consistent schedule. Must be open to work at all hours. Hard to balance work and life. Management focused only on staff hours and making them as minimal as possible.

Overall, a good company to work for. Everyone starts part time with low wages but raises are guaranteed with hours and the benefits are good too. Can pick up extra hours easily. Very organized. Expect to work hard.
Pros
Willing to train for new positions
Cons
Part time to start

Pros
Great crew, expectations are clear, job security, paid benefits
Cons
It takes a while before you can earn a good wage.

Too many strong personalities in a small working area, very unorganized, very stressful, schedule would change constantly, sometimes without notice, other times when I would approach my manager regarding time off for school, she would just bully me into taking more shifts! A few of my co-workers were awesome, nice people, but the rest, well, I'll just say I'm happy they're not my co-workers anymore.
