Meat Sanitation Specialist (Former Employee) – Scarborough, ON – 9 August 2018
As someone who has worked for one of the many departments inside of a Costco warehouse, I can confidently say that, I don't regret a day I worked there.
The pay was good, about what it should be, usually a little more then average for your position, Managers were very nice and helpful. Work area was clean and people around you are very happy to be there.
Benefits are very good, they know how to treat you well, all in all an awesome experience.

Very occupied company always something to do. The staff taught security at work , how to use the cash register , how to to talk at the member to have more benefits. Management is well planned and precis. The job is pretty simple the cons of the job is too stay all day standing up.
Hearing Aid Clinic Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 17 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.
Optician/Contact Lens Fitter (Current Employee) – Waterloo, ON – 16 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.

FRONT END CASHIER/ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Winnipeg, MB – 4 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.
great pay and benefits
takes a long time to move up and no schedule leniency
Photolab Technician (Current Employee) – Canada – 3 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.
Lot Clerk (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 June 2018
Whilst it may be a little bit hectic on the weekends & the management maybe unorganized at times because of their several other responsibilities & things to tend to, it's a great environment to work in....... plus great benefits !
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, AB – 26 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.
Good benefits and vacation time if you stay long enougb
To get good pay and benefits you havr to stay 10 years or more
Cashier (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 23 June 2018
I loved working at Costco as a Cashier. The staff are what really made it great. These people are so dedicated and stay so positive. While I was a student, the managers really supported me in attending classes and still making my shifts.
