Costco food court (Former Employee) –  Saint-Hubert, QC5 August 2018
Costco is an organization and has a great timing in the result of their jobs. They surround the new employees well. Not just in their debut but in their way to become independent.

Good Coworkers / Hard to get Fulltime
Hearing Aid Clinic Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Sherwood Park, AB17 July 2018
Great place to work, coworkers are great, management good. Just about impossible to get Full time though. Too many full time longtime employees so new employees stay at part time for years and years waiting for a full time position to be available.
Pros
Good benefits & coworkers
Cons
cannot live on only part time hours

Good Job overall
Cariste (Former Employee) –  Laval, QC17 July 2018
Good Job, but hard to match Life balance. It depends on people's life goals

For a company, hiring internally for management positions can be a good option for operational purposes, but most of them lack in management skills.
Pros
Solid Remuneration Plan & Benefits
Cons
Hours, Working Environment

Great Benefits and Good People
Optician/Contact Lens Fitter (Current Employee) –  Waterloo, ON16 July 2018
Overall Costco has amazing people working there! Most are hard workers who do their job and seem to enjoy themselves. The company itself offers a lot of benefits and really tries to take care of its employees. It is a great place to work. Not all department managers are the easiest to work with and that can make your day challenging, but the company is set up in a way that encourages you to be able to speak to those who are higher up to ensure you can work efficiently.

its an ok job.
AUTOMOBILE SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Edmonton, AB8 July 2018
Its a seniority, so if you are looking for fulltime job, it will take you years for that... but good for part timer. Its really about seniority and if you know someone in upper management
Pros
free costco membership
Cons
fulltime job is really by seniority

great benefits but takes a while to move up
FRONT END CASHIER/ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Winnipeg, MB4 July 2018
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.
Pros
great pay and benefits
Cons
takes a long time to move up and no schedule leniency

Company cares for their employees
Photolab Technician (Current Employee) –  Canada3 July 2018
With competitive salaries and benefits, Costco clearly values the work its employees do. There is plenty of room for movement and growth within the company, with many resources to support you through a budding career. They only promote from within so all management has put the time into the company and care about their work as much as you do.
It's hard work but you often leave feeling appreciated.

Company offers good benefits to employees but each warehouse varies greatly and some run much more smoothly than others
Meat Cutter/Forklift Driver (Current Employee) –  Edmonton, AB26 June 2018
Benefits really add up if you stay long enough, but how effectively and efficiently your department works rest depends on your manager and the warehouse as a whole works the same way. Good managers and everything is great but there is no one warehouse with all good managers. They all have people that will make you wonder how they ever became managers and they will all have managers who pick up the slack for the others.
Pros
Good benefits and vacation time if you stay long enougb
Cons
To get good pay and benefits you havr to stay 10 years or more

Costco is a great place to work. The only drawback is there is not much opportunity for advancement. They pay well, have good benefits and it is a fun work environment.
