Unpredictable hours and unreasonable treatment of employees
Front End Assistant (Employé actuel) – Regina, SK – 2 juillet 2019
You will not see the benefits of working at Costco unless you plan to work there for the rest of your life. They give you horrible shifts that you cant plan around and sometimes they stop giving you shifts all together. (I didnt work for 4 months, blew through all my savings, and they ignored me every time I asked for hours and could never say when they would be giving hours again) Managers are unreasonable, they send you for your break when its convenient for them (usually 1 hour into a 5 hour shift) You will get in trouble if you dont meet their unreasonable quotas such as upgrades but also if you make a member mad from pushing too much youre in trouble. They act like you're at fault for not being able to do it when there are so many other factors involved like how you will probably never have a packer. you will be degraded by members and you will never receive any support from the superiors, member service means you are always in the wrong! Long time employees are more important than newer ones, you will ALWAYS miss out on opportunities over them and there will never be anything left for them to give you. My tip, do not work front end it seems like the best job but it is the worst.. only work in Costco if you can get a job in the bakery!
Paid more than minimum wage
Bad shifts, zero work life balance, unpredictable, unreasonable, you get degraded
