Workload is balanced, always something new to learn, you can work in different department. They guarantee you a 25 hours a week at least. Hardest part of the job is that you are up on your feet most of the day except during break time. I enjoy the people that work there and the hours are amazing and works out for me.

Costco is a good work environment. The management and employees are all friendly. I learned how to connect and communicate with individuals one on one.

FAst, intense workplace, but shifts go quickly because you are busy. Due to the fast paced environment, they employees were good at training, not much given from management but then again i was only seasonal. However it was difficult to move on with the management team spread so thin to advise. I was only there for seasonal work and from what i heard from other employees they pay minimum wage no matter if you are seasonal or not. Not much incentive to purse further if wage stays the same whether you are seasonal, or full. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting new customers as I love people and this is the place you meet all sorts

I really enjoyed working there and it was a safe environment. Everyone was treated equally and individuals were able to express themselves without a fear of penalization.

If you don't plan to work in retail for more then five years save your time and energy and work for walmart. They don't care about employees, they don't care about seniority, and hours are always capped at 25.

Costco has a highly competitive salary, great benefits, and a friendly environment. However, the hours are long and busy. Waking up at 4:30 to go lift heavy items isn't ideal, but not all jobs there are that early or demanding
Pros
Great benefits
Cons
Hard work

Workplace is okay, some of the cashiers were nice, some were rude and most of the front-end managers have favouritism and are not very polite. I've gotten sworn at before. The work is really demanding. I can't lift very heavy things so it was definitely challenging.
Pros
Free food
Cons

Overall Costco has amazing people working there! Most are hard workers who do their job and seem to enjoy themselves. The company itself offers a lot of benefits and really tries to take care of its employees. It is a great place to work. Not all department managers are the easiest to work with and that can make your day challenging, but the company is set up in a way that encourages you to be able to speak to those who are higher up to ensure you can work efficiently.

I gained more confidence and learned a lot. The hardest part is when you are asked to pack and you have to lift heavy items because they don't allow even big items to be left in the cart.
Pros
Executive card
Cons
Not enough hours given because of favouritism

I honestly can't complain about anything. There were really awful coworkers who would straight up bully you like you're in elementary school. There was some favoritism with management that was very obvious, but other than that it was a great experience! I sadly only was there for a seasonal position, but I hope to go back.
Pros
Stable and Beneficial
Cons
Mean CoWorkers

Costco provides numerous advancement opportunities and grows people in the direction they want to go. It opens unlimited doors as long as you have the drive to keep climbing.

Enjoy what I do in the early morning baking, and excellent company to work for. The hardest part of the job is the physical demands on my body, specifically shoulders and back.
