Great place to work if you're looking for long-term employment.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 6 January 2019
At Costco as a stocker, the day-to-day operations are physically demanding. The managers are great to work for and I enjoyed my position at Costco. There is plenty of opportunity for advancement as they hire from within.

The driving environment at Costco is one that always seems to get worse every day. The employees will usher you in early and are the only thing that keep you going until they tell you the reality of the situation at hand. Full time is very hard to get (atleast 2 years before full time) the incremental pay increases are extremely slow for part timers(1200+ hours for a small raise) and you will be given the same opportunities as people who are consistently lazy and unwilling. Above all management will seem great at first to you, but you will come to learn that managers will only do things for themselves and you are nothing but another employee. They will ask you to take on positions and jobs to help such a great manager and they could be gone next week for their own sake. The icing on the cake is the nepotism in this company, I have come to accept it in general, but this company pushes it to the max. If you have parents, relatives or a spouse that is higher or more powerful on a lateral scale, then those people connected, even if not suited will get it. Favourites and eventual bad morale boils down to the employees that are most knowledgeable not caring and getting prioritized first, which trickles down to new hires.
Great coworkers, great pay for a simple job if youre willing to play it long term.
MERCHANDISER/STOCKER (Former Employee) – Burnaby, BC – 10 October 2018
The company respects employees culture and differences. The management always make sure that safety procedures are observed to avoid accidents in the warehouse. Starting salary is low for apersons with their own family so might as well look for a part time to make ends meet but after couple of years you get a livable wage.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 September 2018
Lots of heaving lifting, everything at Costco is large scale. hard working fast pace environment. They have a great benefits package and lots of opportunity to grow. They care about their employees and you don't feel like a number. I found it to be a good company to work for overall.
Morning Stocker (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 September 2018
Started work by getting greeted by managers as they hand out our duties for the morning. From there on it was constant work and lots of team work. It was never an easy day for us but with working alongside great managers and people the environment was never stressful and so work was done on time and as told.
Great work atmosphere, employees are very well respected and treated to great benefits.

I'd recommend anyone to work at Costco. One of the fairest companies to work for - entry level positions are treated with very high importance from all levels of management and they have a great open door policy where the managers actually listen to everyone. All in all great place to work
Morning Merchandise Stocker/Safety Representative (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 16 August 2018
Working at Costco for the morning merchandise shift has been pleasant. Time goes by quickly when you start between 4 and 5 a.m. The current set of management has stalled with the development of employees who want to continue to climb their well constructed company ladder and frustrations are beginning to show. The other shifts and departments are flourishing with warehouses consternating opening and being constructed. Overall, Costco is one of the better companies out there.
Productive workplace with a very close knit team of employees
Stocker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 25 June 2018
A typical day started around 2 pm up to 5 pm depending on your shift. You would be organized into different areas of the store and are expected to maintain the floor at all times. It was a fairly simple job so there weren't too many problems. We would handle customer questions on the floor such as directions to certain products as well as clean up displays and stock displays as needed. My day spent most of the time inside the cooler stocking the milk and other chilled products. I learned how to better manage my time as i further worked inside there. The management had alot of changes while i was there, There were constant changes that seemed to contradict each other at times. But overall it was a positive experience with management. They would look after me. The employees are quite close knit for example going out after shifts and it felt a lot like a family if anything. The hardest part of the job would be just the feeling of being understaffed. When we are expected to clean a whole store with 3 people during the day sometimes as well as help other understaffed areas if needed. It turned stressful at certain points of the year. The most enjoyable part would have to be the interactions of members and employees.
Very fast pace environment, receiving merchandise an stocking shelves, with strick deadlines. The most enjoyable part of the job was the people I worked with ,They were really laid back an friendly an easy to get along with.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 3 May 2018
It was a decent enough job, work was good but repetitive. Management was mediocre at best, really high expectations, not much guidance. Was frequently understaffed, and the job was very inflexible for a part time job.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Costco Heritage – 26 March 2018
Good management that respects rights and needs of employee. A great place to work with all standards and rules in place to keep everyone safe. Very comfortable environment with locker rooms and staff rooms to take a break.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 9 March 2018
Hired to restock and organize shelves in the produce area on the night shift. Promoted to night merchandising team and proved myself as a valuable contributor to the overall organization of the produce department. Further advanced to warehouse operations, which included moving large pallets of produce and other goods from the warehouse areas out to the shopping areas to be merchandised before opening hours. I was able to apply my previous safety training plus acquired knowledge of mechanical lifting equipment to help ensure safe completion of tasks.
