Even through COVID, we never closed. Very physically demanding, must be able to stand long hours. Ability to move up however you MUST put in your hours. You’re not gonna be a manager overnight. Pay raises are based off of how many you hours you work, sucks when you start working but only gets better as you go along. If bored in one department, able to transfer departments.
Pros
Most managers work with your life schedule
Cons
Physical Labour, Concrete Floors

my issue was at the heartland location was management. I had told them I need to work less hours because I had acquired an second job. But they did not care about me so I had left. Outside of that the job was okay.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
management does not care about their staff

To much stress on pushing credit card/executive card. Very, hard to get into a Costco, and to get full time. Management's, has their favorites and they get first pick. Longtime, full time employees are clicky. Made some great pt friends. Hard to get days off.

A typical day was fast paced and a bit stressful. However, the great team I worked with made for a positive experience. Management was great however, I wasn't kept on (I was seasonal) due to calling in sick after I experienced an accident and provided a doctor's note. This was the only thing that upset me as it was out of my control. But, I definitely would work there again and recommend it to anyone. It's fairly physical if you work with the cashiers as an assistant which actually helped to keep me active. I found it to be a well rounded job for pretty decent pay even at minimum.
Pros
great team environment, good pay, healthy work environment, good management.
Cons
Long physical shifts

While working at Costco I learned how to work well with other people and under pressure. A typical day at work was packing people's groceries and restocking the shelves.

It is a great place to work with great benefits and guaranteed pay raise every year until you reach Costco's max pay for the position. Working hard and staying committed will give you the opportunities that you want.

the job itself and the people you work with make it a super place to work. like in every job, its not all rainbows. management was not properly trained due to the fact that advancement was sometimes decided based on favoritism and not because of the actual work you put in. besides that i loved working there for 3 years, good energy and a united team.
Pros
flexibility in schedule changes and days off. good starting salary
Cons
late hours sometimes

Management is promoted from within which can be positive but may result in lack of quality personnel. There is very little book training in the areas of Management of People, Communication Skills, Motivational Skills. There are no training opportunities brought in from the outside ie workshops, in service presentations, additional training courses. Morale is very Low. High rate of stress leaves. Physical stress (heavy lifting, cement floor) Mostly positive relationships and friendships between coworkers. Executive Membership provided free of charge
Pros
Great Pay and Benefits, Most coworkers have positive relationships and friendships
Cons
Low Morale, Toxic Environment
