Customer Service Associate (Former Employee) – Sudbury, ON – 16 August 2018
Costco in Sudbury isn’t a great place to work despite what everyone tells you. Unless you’re part of the manager bff club, good luck moving up. It’s 100% about personal relationships and absolutely 0% about your actual work performance and personality. The benefits are okay, but the pay is average and the environment is toxic. Also: the food court is an absolute disaster and once you get in there, good luck ever getting out. Wouldn’t recommend... hours can be extremely ridiculous and even though you’re only part time you have to work 5 days a week. Completely unfair if you are trying to work a second job to pay bills (oh by the way they don’t accommodate if you have a second job) Overall - not worth the stress.
Benefits, paid breaks (when you’re allowed to take them)
Doesn’t respect Labour Board standards, including health and safety in certain departments, Expects staff to bend rules, Work 5 days a week as a PartTimer, no chance for movement into management
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.
