Front End Assistant (Current Employee) – Calgary, AB – 15 January 2019
Working with the public on a day to day basis can be a very difficult task in itself. Working at one of the busiest warehouses in North America has it’s challenges and unfortunately the biggest one is management. They let the members do whatever they want, undermining the staff who try to maintain company policy. Eventually you become numb to your purpose as an employee and turn up to work just for the paycheck. :(

As a student Costco is a great company to work for as they give you lots of hours over the summer. You can work all summer and then you can go to school in the fall. You don't have to worry about your job, as it is secured and you can come back for the holidays and summer to work again.

typical work day at the Costco location i work at is pretty busy and chaotic. we are one of the busiest locations in north america and therefore the work pace is very fast and it can get pretty stressful but the benefits and starting salary is fair.

Biggest thing about working for Costco, is it depends on the region,. The store location I worked at hired very young students, and the management treated them poorly. Girls and boys were disciplined if they were even seen speaking to one another. FORMALLY disciplined. Not violating any policies and still written up for simply talking to the coworker while you were working the same till or passing by one another in the aisle. My best advice, shop at the Costco before you apply. The atmosphere for a shopper is pretty much what you will experience working there.
Pay, and advancement.
Heavy lifting and standing on hard concrete all shift.

Typical day at work. Very friendly environment. Everyone is helping each other out. Loved how we had free lunches on every holiday events. Each department is very well organized and well maintained. I have learned a lot of management skills and how to manage everything in certain amount of time. How to deal with customers and up sell them. Over all I had a very lovely experience working at Costco wholesale

If you're a student - they give you the hours you want. If you're a part time - they give you some benefits If you're a full time - they give you the best benefits in the world and they try their best to make sure you're happy/safe/taken care of.
Stay here for like 25+ years and you'll be able to own a couple houses because you get raises depending on how many hours you've worked. Some employees make over $25 an hour.

I gained alot of customer experience while working for Costco. The work place is filled with nice fast paced workers that are willing to go above and beyond for your satisfaction. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to make new friendships with my co-wokrers
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 19 October 2018
I worked here for 3 months in front end and it was a great experience! My managers and co-workers were all super friendly and had no problem showing me the ropes, It wasn't a hard job to learn and it was so fast paced that time went by really quickly. The Managers would always made sure you got your breaks and they would usually mix you around a little bit so you're not doing the same job all day. There is really good advancement options and they encourage you to as well.
Scheduled breaks, very friendly work environment, great advancement options.
