Gas Station Attendant (Former Employee) – Sherwood Park, AB – 2 February 2018
Working for Costco is pretty good for the most part, the co-workers are probably the best part, the pay is decent, being jjust above minimum wage, but promotions and getting a full time position could take years. Costco is best for student jobs as they have a really good student retention program
Costco lacks the communication of individuals working together to solve problems. It's too fast pace of a job, where quantity conquers quality. Sundays bring good money but overall not a good place to be employed.
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
