Didn't work here for very long, but it was ok
Pharmacy Student (Former Employee) –  Peterborough, ON15 April 2018
Not a bad place to work. The manager was quite new, so things were a little chaotic at first. The patients were sometimes quite aggressive as well, but nothing out of the ordinary.

Good place to work
Payroll Assistant and Sales Auditor (Former Employee) –  Dartmouth, NS15 April 2018
Costco is a great place to work if you are still in school but is more difficult when you have a family. Its all about the company and everything else comes second.

Fun energetic job
Forklift Operator, Stocker, Merchandiser (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON13 April 2018
Working at Costco is very enjoyable.
Great people, great atmosphere, fun and fast paced job.

Most enjoyable part of the job is that you are constantly doing something and often times what you do changes and changes on the fly.

People are fun work can get tedious
bagger/seasonal hire (Former Employee) –  Red Deer County, AB11 April 2018
The problems i had with costco are the tedious and repetitive work but that doesnt matter much when you have fun people to work with/around. Its a good place for high school students to get some nice cash for a seasonal hire
Pros

Great pay, bad nepotism
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, ON10 April 2018
The only way to move up is if you're LOVED by manageent. Excellent pay and a sunday bonus which few of the big retailers do. Overall, do NOT trust anyone as they're just trying to get promoted.

Coruption aside, costco is an excellent place to make alot of money
Pros
Great Pay
Cons
Bad management

Fun, hectic, impractical scheduling but good full-time wages.
MERCHANDISER & PARKING LOT ATTENDANT (Former Employee) –  Brampton, ON2 April 2018
A fun environment to work in. However scheduling for part-timers I found to be impractical with little room for compromise. Good full-time wages and benefits.The physical aspect of the job is great for sprightly individuals. However, the inclement conditions can be taxing.
