Night Merchandiser (Current Employee) – Red Deer, AB – 9 July 2018
Great place to work if you have been there for 20+ years. Management is constantly changing, they often play favorites and it can be difficult to advance. Can be a fun workplace, but they often change the rules depending on the warehouse manager.

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.

Costco gave me alot of customer experiences and helped me with differents experiences. Costco has helped me with teaching me lots of basics techniques to deal with harder customer. I had lots of fun working at Costco felt like working with a big family. The hardest part of my job was lifting heavy boxes.

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.
