Not what it was

After 10 years things are just different the culture the members it all leads up to some stressful times that’s hard to keep up a good work life balance/ managers are a little incompetent on things like breaks scheduling and dealing with matters of the business.


Pay raises and benefits


Very long days and stressful co workers

Très bon emploi

C'est un très bon emploi avec une superbe équipe pour nous entourer. Il est possible de monter de grade dans la compagnie lorsque vous montrez votre motivation à travailler pour Costco. Les horaires sont quand même flexible. J'adore ça là-bas, mais il est temps pour moi de trouver un emploi dans le domaine qui me passionne le plus; la télévision

Costco is a great place to work, lots of benefits, and a consistent pay structure. You are guaranteed a minimum of 25 hours a week which provides security for a lot of people working there.


Consistent hours, good pay, chances for advancement


Long night shifts, lack of a social life

Good place to work

Stressful job no doubt about it, but the moneys good after 6-7 years of service. so a lot of people stay because of it. Management can be good and bad just depends on how much they like you.


Same job everyday


Schedule not the greatest

Bon emploi étudiant, avancements peu intéressants

Travail qui se concilie bien avec des études à temps partiel peu importe le poste dans le département du service, car il y a possibilité de travailler durant l'école et de faire un horaire de travail en conséquence. Par contre, aucun poste donné en fonction des compétences d'une personne. Tous les postes de cadres sont donnés par ancienneté, donc il faut être embauchés avant pour avoir le droit à certains postes en priorité ou être TRÈS AMIS ou dans la même famille que des gens dans la haute direction de l'entrepôt pour avoir le poste désiré. Peu de challenge intellectuel, donc personne avec expérience en administration et ayant des études, s'abstenir. Cela reste quand même une belle possibilité pour personnes n'ayant aucun diplôme et voulant atteindre un certain salaire annuel sans devoir être bon dans son travail et sans se préoccuper d'avoir une vie personnelle.

good place to work at

people are nice and the pay is pretty good. on sundays they have premium pay so you get an extra $4 on top of your usual hourly wage. opportunities to advance and the work isn't too hard but it gets really busy

Would like to see higher wages, benefits, more training, incentives, perhaps chances for Advancement,

Dear Folks;I work for Club Demonstrator Services within Warehouse 1263. The people (Costco) workers are amazing and so helpful and are very respectful people. Club Demonstrator Services staff on the whole are ok, but I feel the pay should be higher, as well offering benefits I have been with this company for 6 1/2 years and no promotion, no incentives. This being said I would feel better if more was offered.


Excellent when dealing with members, close to my house


No benefits, no incentatives, no advancement

Good for some

I believe Costco is a good job for some people however it is not rewarding at all and it is the worst kind of retail. Everyone thinks that you owe them everything because they are “members” and they are all management cares about. However it pays well and the benefits are good

Do not work for Costco

They customers and your employers treat you like garbage. They make you do long hours for little pay. Do not work for this company if your value your time.

Fast paced work environment

Costco is generally a fast paced work environment and it is a perfect place if you enjoy that. The managers do not respect boundaries and will badger you on your days off. You will be pressured to work almost everyday. The pay is good and there are a lot of benefits. Another important thing to mention is that no one will train you properly and you are expected to just figure out the job yourself.

Very fast paced

Very repetitive, most management stands around and watches Most regular staff very friendly Shorter shifts but can extend. Lunch room decent. Breaks not long enough

If you're going to work retail.

Might as well work at Costco. You won't be paid better in retail and you won't get better benefits from retail. That being said, it's retail. Humans are rude.

90 days probation means they watch you carefully

Work force is quite harder than expected bk everything is bulk sizes. They dont train you well but have high expectation for first 30 days. Google it before you work there. Dont be afraid of doing whatever they ask to do at first.


Only 5 hrs per time for seasonal workers


Irregular work schedules

Front end assistant

Benefits are excellent and co-workers are awesome. Management and supervisors are usually really helpful. There is an open door policy if you feel your needs aren’t being considered.


Productive and fun workplace


limited advancement

Great place to work but not to balance work-life

The wage and the benefits are good, but if you need to manage your schedule to adapt your personal life to your professional life is not possible because they don't care about it, and it doesn't matter how hard you work. Senior coworkers always have advantages over you.

Average grocery store experience - you don't matter

Expect to be seen as a tool more then a person. Everyone wears name tags because management doesn't have the time to learn your name. Opportunities for training and advancement are slim and sporadic. Pay is "fair" by grocery store standards but should be higher.


Shifts go by fast
