a faced-past environment but easy to learn. It can be overwhelming with the customer rush during the weekends but majority understand how hectic it can be and go easy on you.

As a seasonal employee you get to work off hours to restock inventory. In Alberta, they start you at $13/hour. Might have changed now but its not impressive until you get a perm. position and a few years with them under your belt. Then its certainly worth it.
Pros
Served great appreciation lunch over Christmas

On a regular work day basis, I would mostly prodvide information to customers about our offers. I would go arround the store and find new customers ( our customers friends) to open-up a membership with us or even a credit card. Knowing that the store is huge, we would be multiple people doing it. Everyday would be a new challenge with new goals. The hardest part of my job was getting a customer to open a credit card because they wouldn't wanna pay extra, or for many other reasons. The best part of my job was the fact that I get to walk around but and be in different departments in the store. I would meet different people from around the country and I would always approach them differently about our memberships.
Pros
On week-ends, we can choose the time of our breaks.
Cons
On week-ends we were paid 2$ more every hour.

I have made a lot of friends out of my co-workers and I have definitely enjoyed my time at Costco. The job I currently have, however, requires a lot of physical labour which is not always ideal. I also do not currently hold a full-time position at Costco and this experience will not help me further my career as I am looking to eventually get a job in social working. I would love a job which involves a lot more interaction with customers.
Pros
Excellent co-workers.
Cons
A lot of physical labour
