The employees are great. The job was flexible to pursue my studies at the time. I was able to learn new skills and be trained in multiple departments.

Overall a great company to work for. There are a lot of opportunities as long as you are a hard worker and can be patient for advancements. With a large number of employees and departments, you can move around the warehouse a lot and make some meaningful friendships. Would recommend most definitely.

Everyone I worked with was very nice, understanding, patient and seemed to carry the same mindset. Costco does a good job of meeting the needs of those that need it or may need a little extra help. Good training

Costco as a whole is a good workplace, unfortunately my warehouse was one of the worst directed. Management over the years have cared less over our companies values and more about the money they bank for themselves. Money is fair at costco allowing you to stay just far enough ahead, but the way it is run, is not enough to keep lasting employees.

From my experience there Costco was an amazing company to work for, the hours are very consistent, the staff is surprisingly friendly, and nothing is taken personally. However, the management staff could be better as i wasn't informed about changes when i was supposed to be and would happen weeks after and I would have to ask.

Management isn't that great, I found it really political. Showing up even a minute late looks very bad on you and is used against you even though there are 30 people scanning in at the same time, so you're bound to punch in late here and there. People are very nice that work there, the pay isn't as great as people make it out to be. Rises are baised on hours worked there, not by performance which I disagree with strongly. Don't work too hard as it's not recognised or appreciated.
Pros
big area, lots of employees
Cons
tons of "members", very crowded work space

For the most part was a good place to work. Some of the people I worked with were hard to get along with, but management was great to deal with. Did not like having to cover front end

Competitive salary, good benefits, regular breaks, good training and regular raises. Plenty of opportunity for advancement and good equality. Typically only one weekend day off (when full-time) and 0 weekend days off (when part-time)- but that's retail. Opportunity for relocation.
Cons
Must work weekends

It was a great job when it came to benefits and a retirement savings plan. but I did not like how as a tire tech I needed to do a bunch of other departments jobs as well. I did not realize this applying for the job

Costco is a very work friendly environment, with many diverse staff members. Work was great until the hours got cut dramatically, and left many short of working hours. I felt like the work ethic of a few other employees were lacking in the department(s) and not much was done in that sense because management was so busy they couldn't be watching over the employees. I feel like I was not appreciated once the season was over, although I did switch departments to help out and picked up hours when employees didn't show up.
Pros
Breaks were high priority, friendly people, many job positions
Cons
unclear instructions, lack of managers present
