Retail, but better

Great company, especially with employees's payments, benefits, and work-able hours. Opportunity for advancement is available, especially if you have the hours (worked for the company for x-amount of years) and/or education.

Points positifs

Pay, hours, opportunity for promotions

Points négatifs

Fast-paced (negatively at times), political management (favouring employees, etc.)

Poisonous Work Atmosphere

Night Merch/ForkLift Operator (531) - Costco is known for being a great place to work, what they fail to mention is how terrible it is starting out. Your are surrounded by senior staff members who make in some cases double the same amount of money you are for the same amount of work. In most cases their senior staff members feel invincible and slack off the majority of the time making it even more infuriating. This in turn creates a lot of staff turnover which forces management to hire young staff members to keep up, but because the majority of people are between 18-24 it feels like high school all over again. People only help their "friends" but then when they fall behind you will be expected to stay and help them. As for management themselves, you will either love them or hate them from my experience. Random managers showing up from other warehouses try and assert dominance gets old extremely fast. Overall, unless you plan on working here for the rest of your life, don't bother working here at all. I didn't even mention how entitled and arrogant the "members" are, and good luck trying working any weekend shift, place is slammed and always understaffed.

Points positifs

advancement, pay based on seniority

Points négatifs

pay based on seniority, no incentive for hard work, understaffed, extremely busy, poor management, arrogant customers, low moral

my issue was at the heartland location was management. I had told them I need to work less hours because I had acquired an second job. But they did not care about me so I had left. Outside of that the job was okay.

Points positifs

Points négatifs

management does not care about their staff

Fast Paced work environment with some pros and cons

Overall I believe I had a positive experience at Costco. I worked as a part-time night merchandiser. I left because my hours were getting too much and I was heading into my final year of university, which meant, I did not have the necessary extra time to be working late on some weekdays and almost every weekend. My hours usually went from 6 pm-11 pm. Because I was a merchandiser, we would stock and clean everything at night after the store closed. The co-workers were all great. It is a team environment as you usually get grouped up with other people in specific areas, but very fast-paced as well, especially during the holidays. You have to be on top of everything with deadlines and making sure everything is stocked by a certain time. I did feel some managers did not care about employees at all. It is a labour job, so there was a lot of "ordering people around". There were a few managers who were very good though. Overall if you think it sounds like something you would enjoy, I would recommend 9especially as part-time). After working there for a year, I learnt that It wasn't something I wanted to do any longer and the 1-year experience was enough for me. The pay is good, especially when working on holidays, but you do get called in a lot when other employees can't make it to work, or it is a particularly busy day/night.

Points positifs

collaberative, work freedom, co-workers

Points négatifs

Late shifts, Repetativeness, Some Managers

Stressful & fast paced

Always being rushed and management doesn't listen to you. Not a fun place to work. A lot of drama and dont get to enjoy your break time in peace.The members are also very rude to you for no reason.

Productive and fun workplace

A typical day at work is fast paced and collaborative. You'll be tested on your problem solving skills as you are trying to maintain an optimal customer experience for all that are shopping in your store. Management are firm, but fair. Workplace culture is based on customer satisfaction. The hardest part of the job is keeping up with the pace.

Understaffed location meant goals were constantly unreasonable

I was at a location that only existed for a couple years, and so most likely because of loan payback which was most likely still occurring, management was trying to be austere while still presenting the location to be in pristine condition in terms of service, stock and cleanliness. This meant it was constantly understaffed, and the managers kept pushing to complete more than was physically possible in the allotted time. There is no union, and rumours exist of people being let go after the mention of it. Costco does pay a small premium over stores like Walmart or other grocery stores, which means they will constantly have new job applicants, allowing them to have whatever turnover they want at the location. I left due to the bad tradeoff of excessive stress for not much more pay, which no benefits, and authoritarian management.

great workplace

Very understanding staff. The training was done well and soon enough I felt like a staple team member. They acknowledge employee's hard work and they strive for a better team and back that up with incentives as well as coaching.

Fast paced

Lots of crowds and chaos. In management the hours are very inconsistent and do not expect to get weekends or consecutive days off. But the pay is good.

Met some wonderful people

Met some wonderful people, still visit the location when I am able. It was a good experience. I needed to have consecutive days off to visit my elderly mother, which wasn't always possible with the schedule.

Great working environment and employees at Costco!

All employees and management are very helpful for the limited time I worked there! Customers are also nice and the work is a little laborious, but I enjoyed it. So, I would recommend Costco to anyone who needs to work a seasonal job around Christmas.
