Costco
605 Expo Blvd, Cashier (Current Employee) –  Vancouver, BC13 June 2018
Costco in my opinion is a great company to work for; mainly because there is never a dull moment when I am working there because there is always something to do at all times. For example, taking unwanted items from customers back where they belong, organizing buggies, helping out produce if needed, collecting all the empty boxes. Secondly, Costco is also a great company to work for knowing that they provide a program from students called the CSRP program which basically allows individuals who are going to school only work weekends, giving them the rest of the week to completely focus on school. Lastly, is Costco provides premium pay on Saturdays and Sundays and provides a lot of benefits and increases the wage as individuals go up the hierarchy.

Not an exciting job but they pay well
Attendant (Former Employee) –  Guelph, ON11 June 2018
the pay is great for the type of work, its a bit boring though.
raises/promotion are given on seniority and not work ethic.
be prepared to work part-time for at least a year or two because full time positions are given based on seniority as well. Managers are great at least mine was from the Guelph branch (food court).
some Of the younger kids were always making drama so that kinda sucks but not the worst
Pros
guaranteed hours, benefits, free membership
Cons
boring, drama.

good pay and benefits but poor work environment
Front End Assistant (Current Employee) –  Calgary, AB11 June 2018
the majority of management is incompetent and tends to micromanage employees. Atmosphere is very fast paced and stressful. Pay and benefits are decent. In addition there is no wifi access in the warehouse, and the closest sources of food are of poor quality. Bring your own lunch if possible.
Pros
Decent pay, good benefits system, rewards employees for shopping in store
Cons
Poor management, no wireless access, stressful environment.

Environnement agréable et productif
Caissière (Current Employee) –  Candiac, QC8 June 2018
Une journée typique chez Costco c'est de voir environ 54 membres à l'heure et d'offrir quotidiennement des options plus adaptés à la clientèle. J'ai appris à sortir de mon confort et d'avoir une approhe amélioré et plus facile envers les clients. Le plus difficile est de devoir bien gérer le temps entre les commandes à passer et les promotions qui doivent être appliqué en même temps. Le plus agréable est le contact quotidien avec une clientèle aux standards plus élever. C'est de relever le défi que cela occasionne chaque journée passée à mon travail
Pros
le travail d'équipe
Cons
la pression constante des résultats de promotions
