Best place I’ve ever worked!! Pay is great & the hours aren’t too late or too early. Accommodating working life balance. Just wish part time could work three days a week rather then five.
Pros
Good pay, good hours
Cons
Part time is five days a week

Management talks the talk, a lot... but that's all.Lots of policies in place, they read nice but a rarely enforced.Have a concern? Watch your back, the boot-lickers are near, and most think of themselves as 'he without sin".Management promotes Igors (lot's of "yes master" types - see quisling)If you come to work to play and make friends, apply now. If you want to work and support the customers well and expect management to have your back, do not work for Costco.
Pros
Friendly atmosphere, lots of fun
Cons
Don't fight for the customer, you'll upset the quislings.

Staff have no respect for eachother, the senior employees that have been there longer act like they are kings and queens and put newer staff down. They constantly brag about all the seniority they have and talk poorly of others constantly. Toxic work environment

If you are different in any way or have any mental health issues, Costco is the worst. Do not ever report harassment, racism, etc if you want to keep the job. Pharmacy violates privacy laws & call anyone with a mental illness psychos & swearwords. No idea how or why they became medical advisors.

I was relatively siloed in the pharmacy, cant speak for front end work though it seems like the overall culture of the managers is friendly and accommodating

The only good thing about Costco enployment is the pay and benefits. They let the managers verbally abuse you, you'll work every weekend and they love seniority for everything

Busy day, long lines. People not working efficiently enough. Very repetitive work. Missed breaks due to work. Better management needed. More opportunities needed for career development.

Hard to get full time and not consistent schedule. Must be open to work at all hours. Hard to balance work and life. Management focused only on staff hours and making them as minimal as possible.

If you work at Costco you can handle eyverywhere in the world,,,,,,,,it was a very good experience and I have learn a lot, but the hours is so tough especially the managers mostly give the better schedules by seniority of employees.and rates of payments in compare to the volume of the job is so so low.
