Customer Service (Former Employee) – Kitchener, ON – 1 October 2018
It was very good to work there and I enjoyed it. It needs tolerance and patience due to all sorts of moods and personalities. Co workers were the most enjoyable part of the job. The hardest part was getting the cooked food out fast.
Stocker (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 30 September 2018
Lots of heaving lifting, everything at Costco is large scale. hard working fast pace environment. They have a great benefits package and lots of opportunity to grow. They care about their employees and you don't feel like a number. I found it to be a good company to work for overall.
Assistant (Former Employee) – warehouse – 30 September 2018
great benefits, bad shifts for positions other than a cashier or front desk. 4am starts or 1:30 pm- 11pm. Management communication is poor within. Fast paced and overall a great place to learn new skills. Promotes from within.Trains from within.
Food Service Assistant (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 28 September 2018
The pay is great, there are good benefits that come with it. But management can be very pushy & not understanding most of the time. You are able to transfer to other stores or other departments if you'd like a change. The Stores are very busy so be prepared to work hard.
Marketing Representative (Former Employee) – Saskatoon, SK – 28 September 2018
Costco is a great company that will show you many innovative ways to how create a "treasure hunt" of products. Costco has the Costco way and is difficult to have them to anything out of the norm. They are a proven company that does very well for their shareholders.
they will not take advice from anyone who is not management
Clerk (Former Employee) – Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC – 28 September 2018
Costco knows how to keep their employees happy. There's no typical day at work because every day is different depending on how many members come in to buy. Management differs for every Costco, that's some might be better than others. Otherwise, a great place to work.
Costco is like working for any other minimum wage paying job - better benefits
Cashier (Current Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 26 September 2018
the benefits are great. Its like working anywhere else. management is not the greatest. they give you the idea that they care when they really don't. Advancement in this company seems to be racially charged. The employees are great, they make it hard to have a bad day.
Love the people who work there but the managers have no personal skill sand do not connect or talk to employees
Sales and Member Services (Current Employee) – Rocky View, AB – 24 September 2018
They promise a good competitive wage when in reality they pay just over minimum wage. The benefits aren't bad but still nothing to boast about. The management only see you as a number and do not care about most people. To them you're just a number.
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – London, ON – 24 September 2018
The workplace at Costco was very positive and encouraging, and taught a lot about how to multi-task and problem solve on a daily basis. Management staff was very helpful and encouraging to every employee.
Seasonal Packer (Former Employee) – Saint John, NB – 22 September 2018
While they are very accommodating it's difficult to get even part-time employment here. And they will work you hard in the time you are there. Seasonal is great for students, Costco is hard to get into if you want a career however.
Forklift Driver (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 19 September 2018
Satrt at 4:30 am. Drive fork lift dropping product for the stockers to stock. putting stock in the steel to get store ready for open. Lots of friendly people. The job is retail after open I like working with the people and the job. Hardest part of the job is not having weekends off. Bets part of the job is starting early and getting out early.
Morning Stocker (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 18 September 2018
Started work by getting greeted by managers as they hand out our duties for the morning. From there on it was constant work and lots of team work. It was never an easy day for us but with working alongside great managers and people the environment was never stressful and so work was done on time and as told.
Front end/ Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 17 September 2018
I would not recommend working for this company They do not look after their employees or care about anything happening in their lives. As a student needing some time off for ems etc. they were never accommodating/
