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.

Night Merchandiser (Burlington Location) Part-time (Former Employee) –  Burlington, ON20 March 2018
Fun atmosphere at Costco. The company regularly hosts events and bbq's to show workers appreciation.

Pay structure is very good, though it does take alot of time within the company to get up to max rate, which is around $26 an hour.

Company places a strong emphasis on promoting from within. Fun culture. Very busy!
