Job duties varied; cashing, packing, collecting carts before closing. Never a boring day at work. Management was very friendly and understanding; they wanted me to become permanent , but due to school I could not accept their job offering.
Theres a room of afvancement but it takes a long time.one thing i dont like here us the seniority base kind if thing as some if those who worked here for a long time were taking advantage of the new ones by iften times killing time when the time was getting close to home time.not all of them but some people i saw theyre doing it and the higher ups dont see this thing happening.

Not guareenteed hours for seasonal workers
I worked at Costco for the Christmas season, and honestly it was horrible. I was a front end packer and it was really hard work. I also spent hours outside in the dark in the pouring rain collecting carts. Would come back inside soaked to the bone. Working hear was like 20 grit sandpaper on my mental health. 10/10 not a good time.
If you are looking for a job that will keep you when you go away to school its a ok place to work, they give you a calendar to mark your available workdays if you go to a post-secondary school. The downside is that if you are part-time you get no say in when you work and need to work around what they would like unless you can trade shifts with someone
Very fast-paced environment. You have to work hard constantly, but you are rewarded for that with your pay & benefits. Management is pretty good; they're always trying their best to motivate their employees, and they are dedicated to making their warehouse the best it can be. (As for what I've experienced!) The culture at Costco is employees work hard, but they always try to make the best out of their day. We take the time to enjoy our conversations with each costumer and/or employee. There's room for laughter and jokes at work, but you have to always be busy doing something productive. You will enjoy working at Costco if you are sociable and have good work ethics.
Lots of social events for employees. Good culture.
Short Break for Part-Times. You HAVE to work hard and fast.
The work that done consist of alot of labour hard and physical work and I have to be on toes at all time when putting out every morning. At the end it all look good when finished. The management is good and they know what they are doing
best pay package
a lot of work
I worked at costco for the 2017 summer seasonal position. It was a good place to work for the summer as a student because of the good pay ($13 an hour and $17 on Sundays), but going back to school i would never be able to handle it. They give long hours even to seasonal employees who are expected to get the least amount, and it is so hard trying to get days off. I had to miss out on family weddings and trips because my time off wasn't approved.
good pay, friendly employees
long hours, hard to get time off, favouritism from management
Very productive and a delight to work for. I enjoyed working in this company, i get along well with my supervisor and co- workers
Costco Warehouse was a good company to work for. It was a very productive and harmonious. I gained a lot of experience and worked effectively and deligently . I got along with my Supervisor and my co- workers. My supervisor was approachable in dealing with our issues at our department and address our issues immediately.It was my pleasure to work in the meat department. I would have worked there longer but I had an emergency to attend to in the Philippines so I had to leave because I didn't know how long I would be gone.
It is a great place to work, I would recommend anyone to work there. I enjoyed all of the jobs they got me to do. I liked the hours, my co-workers, my pay, my managers. I was sad I was only a seasonal worker. I hope to get rehired in the spring.
Great hours, great pay, close to home
I work the night shift and come in at different times past noon. Typically I will go and help pack carts for a few hours, especially during busy times of the day. Occasionally I will be asked to help load a larger order into a customers vehicle during this time. When it starts to approach closing time and the amount of customers slows down I am typically asked to help return items that customers didn't want, or bring them to MR in the event they were broken/unsellable. During this time if customers approach me looking for items I am expected to help them find it. When the store finally closed I will typically either help stock the food which was rather physically demanding at times or to remove and compact the many empty boxes and plastic wraps that tends to accumulate while stocking. Weekends when they close early usually go better than others and we typically finish early. Weekdays are not always smooth sailing and many of us would be asked to stay late and help if the job was unfinished. If all the work is finished I am often asked to stay behind and help sweep the floors and tidy up the shelves so that the store will be presentable in the morning.
Good starting salary, quick pay upgrades, huge room for advancement
Physically demanding, sometimes have to work late hours
