Fun place to work very active and fast pace
I have learned a lot about management, problem solving and prioritizing. Also about supervising, selling, customer services and dealing with difficult people.
The hardest part of the job is when members treat you bad and are rude which is very often and also dealing with very rude Costco staff everyday with a different complain. The best part is making people happy by giving them free food and people telling you how well I am doing my job and what a good cook I am.
Pros
a lot learning opportunities, coaching, responsability
Cons
Long standing hours, no benefits, low rate of payment

Stress
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...
Pros
The friends you make with the people that you work with.
Cons
Everything else, it's terrible.

Do not work here even if you're desperate
This company is bad to work for, don't even bother applying. I wish I had read these reviews before I was hired because every single one of them is true. Regular shift is 11-7. There is only one shift a day so if you have an appointment and can't work an hour, you lose a whole day. Not very flexible. You get 15 minutes to load your cart, set up your table and have samples ready. This isn't very realistic so people arrive 15 mins before. This 15 mins is unpaid, yet if you're late they get mad. Bearing in mind, most days you have staff meetings that sometimes run until 11:20, so to have your samples out by 11:15? Unrealistic. You then have to stand in one spot all day until your scheduled break which sometimes isn't until five hours into your shift. It's hard on your body and you cannot leave your stations unless you can use the washroom in 3 minutes or get supplies. No water is allowed at your station which often made me sick, so bad I passed out onto a hot oven due to dehydration. I brought this issue up with my manager and she said it was my fault for not asking another employee to assist me. Roadshows are worse, they are open-close shifts and cannot close at all so if you are in the middle of nowhere with either no one near you or no one that has been trained for said roadshow, you cannot leave. If you have any issues and bring them up, you are punished by less shifts and the worst tasks. You get 30 mins unpaid break, and then you're back at your station until the end of the shift. Management is very poorly run, they think they are always right. They will be on your backs - more...
Pros
Eat samples on break, decent pay
Cons
long hours, on feet all day, poor management, no benefits or incentives, stressful
