I was only a seasonal hire so I was only there for a few months, first thing I noticed was the welcoming and friendly culture between staff and coworkers. The job itself is well described as controlled chaos, your shift could be crazy busy or it could be a comfortable flow. I got to interact with all kinds of people, lots of very friendly customers. one thing I noticed was the amount of people who had been working there for 5,10,20,25+ years and made a good living as part of the team. It really goes to show that Costco puts investment into taking care of their employees
Free Costco membership, decent starting wage with room to grow, everyone raves about how good the benefits are
Shift start/finish time is very sporadic. Would be nice to have a fixed schedule
This place rocks. I had worked there for just under 2 years and made a lot of good friends. Unfortunately I had to leave because the environment for me (with social anxiety) would leave me feeling very distraught and stressed on holidays, weekends when they were especially busy. There is room for advancement and they pay/benefits are great for retail. The one thing about the company is that advancement is based on seniority not necessarily work ethic/qualifications.
Great co workers and opportunity to move around in the company
Gets very stressful/overwhelming when it is busy
It was an amazing place to work, where effort is noticed and willingness to complete tasks is valued. The group became a second family and I loved spending my time there, both on and off the clock. I will gladly work for the company again.
Benefits at part time.
Scheduling can be difficult to book around.
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.
Can get repetitive, can be stressful.
The job is quite demanding as you are on your feet all day and have to deal with members the whole time you are there. Other than that, it would be a fun job to work at if the management wasn't idiotic. Favoritism, scheduling problems, unrealistic expectations... you name it. I felt constantly belittled and underappreciated. And not to mention all the petty gossip and drama that occurred between employees. Just toxic, toxic, toxic. STAY AWAY.
Toxic work environment
This company pays well and has great benefits. All hired staff are hired as "part time seasonal" and they can refuse to keep you after 90 days. If they choose to keep you on, it takes about 3 years to get a full time position. They work as a seniority company instead of going by who's more qualified for a position when considering people for employment opportunities within the company. They do not work around any outside scheduling so if you have another job, make sure they're more lenient with schedule compromising. They do have a great student program if you are a university or college student and will work around that schedule if you have proof of acceptance and a schedule.
great pay and benefits
takes a long time to move up and no schedule leniency
I learned how to be responsible. A typical day at work began with greeting customers, encashing and processing their orders, answering their queries, updating them about upcoming promotions and events, towards the end of the day we greet customers and assist with cleaning the store. Management is very responsible and welcoming to new staff. Workplace culture is responsible and understanding. I didnt find anything difficult at work. I had issues with commuting to this place from my house, but that is a very personal problem. Meeting new people.
Sunday Premium, Workers Compensation, Cpp, Student Benefits.
Close to airport, far from university residence.
Costco Wholesale is a great place to work with awesome benefits and great staff! Everyone always seems upbeat and enjoying what they do. They are not afraid to laugh and have a quick conversation on the job because if you don't communicate, the department doesn't work as a unit, and that is key! They always put you first and are always there to help whenever you need, you never feel alone!
Great benefits and pay
fast pace can be tiring
