• Was able to adapt to a changing environment having learned about a wide variety of products that ranged from food to home care and personal care items. • Ensured food products were kept and handled in compliance to proper food safety standards, also keeping work area clean and sanitized. • Proactively engaged with customers to gather information to provide critical feedback about the product and customers’ response.
good job if you enjoy standing and greeting customers, the cooking and serving of the food can be dificult at times, in general a decent job for a senior looking for part time to supplement a pension.
only a coupel of days a week, 3 at most
hours are long standing in one spot, no benefits or rewards for performance
It's easy - if you just keep sample in front of you to pick - people will anyway pick ...but if you want to do it professionally - its a big ask to get used to a product - its pros and cons and highlight to create a positive impact on people ...
basic pay, low work hour
General administration, answering phones, screening calls, recording donations, minute taking, drafting letters, drafting agendas, travel arrangements. Positive environment; Managers are human. The hardest part of the job was ignoring office politics. The most enjoyable part of the job was presenting my finished work to my boss.
High expectations. Stress involved at times.

You need to stand on your feet for 7 hours straight because of which most people don't even make it to a month doing this job. There were a lot of politics going on between everyone and if you don't like drama and gossip you might want to move on. However, there are a lot of people working there who are amazing and make the job worth it.
Very militaristic, officious supervisors, not much room for advancement, low pay All the troops get their eqiupment and demo products then the supervisor approves them and sends them to their stations. You learn much about humanity and how to effectively deal with people Many product demonstrators are dissatisfied with their working environment and lack of appreciation. Freedom to express your ideas to market the demoed product is the most enjoyable part of the job
I am enjoying to work to this company its challenging I can meet different kinds of nationality.Ilearned a lot like how to control or maximize for buying products for demoing food in a day. The management not bad everybody has a teamwork.The work place is a little small for having a small meeting for everybody or has an occasion.My hardest part is when I promoted as a supervisor some other employees are not listening what I'm doing to do them some are stubborn.And my enjoyable part of my job is when I start working recording some temperatures buying some products for demoing to my staff recording their payrol and most all we have a teamwork on this company.
on a daily basis am responsible for the creation, integration of invoices into our Microsoft dynamic Great Plains Accounting System, email and mailing of over 200 invoices, creates and maintain clients info in our data base, also help to resolve any client billing related issues, supports accounts receivable specialists with the recording of cheque payments and applying it against invoices. The hardest part of the job, would be not able to always give a client everything that they wishes, and the most enjoyable part of the job would be able to help someone, and known that they are happy,with the resolute and that i have done everything possible to make it happened.
Not able to grow within the company.
Racism, favoritism to the employees, I experienced before the manager always yelled in front of the customers, lack of respect. I was not happy working with them. sometimes the manager sneaked what are doing.
nothing to say cuz no considerate
always lack of hours.
Prepare to stand in place for 8 hours repeating the same information over and over again, with only one half-hour break at random. Everything is extremely scheduled; hours are straight forward, cut into two groups (Ex, A:1030am to 630pm, B:11am to 7pm Mon-Fri), if you can't make it within the first hour for whatever reason, don't bother, you're day will not be rescheduled to make your shift and you will have lost your whole pay for that day. Members are extremely rude to the employees, and Costco/Costco employees take no consideration to the demonstrators jobs or safety(One day I was working a double cold foods demo that needed to stay below 4 degrees for health and safety purposes, we were out of coolers so I needed to keep my products in the large freezer. Costco employees left the door open all day and my meats were room temperature, I couldn't start my demo for hours as I tried to keep my products cooled down. Not to mention they left our ice packs out of the fridge over night so no one doing their cold food demos had ice packs which are essential. Then they packed the freezer full of canoes(no idea why), the floor is coated in ice, and they moved all of our stuff to the back so we all had to try very hard to not slip and break our necks in an avalanche of small boats) Zero benefits are included in working there, initial pay is only slightly higher than minimum wage, with an increase every 600 hours or so. It's a full-time job, everyone gets about 4-5 shifts a week, until there are random cuts needed to be made and you become stuck with 2. Only good part really is your co-workers, - more...
The friends you make with the people that you work with.
Everything else, it's terrible.
