Fun experience that I cherish

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
A typical day at work would start with check in ,preparing snack cart equipped with paper towel,sanitizer, gloves,trays,snack cups and bags or boxes of the snack assigned to you.We also bring out a garbage bin for used snack cups and a mat to stand on. The snack station will be in same aisle as the snack being sold. We warmly greet customers proceed to provide nutrition, sales information and directions to the product being sold.We allow customers to grab a sample off the tray.Your snack station will be busiest on Friday and Saturday because that's when Costco is busiest. At the end of shift we wash trays and wipe down carts together before we checkout for the day. Most challenging part of the job was that your shift will change often it was hard for me to keep up with the schedule.I overall enjoyed the job very much.

Points positifs

Good benefits

Points négatifs

Shift changes too often

Fast paced, expected to sell memberships and credit cards, chance to know the community

I worked here as a student while in uni, I’m not sure how much has changed since then. It’s very fast paced, okay pay for students, and students only work during breaks. There is a huge expectation and pressure to sell memberships and the credit card, to the point where I felt harassed by management sometimes. There is good opportunities to work in various departments and is even encouraged. Staff are hit or miss, some are kind and others are jaded. You get to know the various faces in the community, including restaurant owners and local politicians. They are flexible in terms of scheduling if you have another job and trading shifts are easy. You get extra pay if you jump on as a cashier if that is not your regular position.

Points positifs

Flexible scheduling, bonus pay for cashiering, student friendly

Points négatifs

Expectation and quota to sell memberships and credit cards, sometimes super busy, entitled clients

Fast paced

Very fast paced, can be very stressful if you have anxiety, and is very demanding. But it is a secure job with patient, understanding co-workers. Very friendly environment for more extroverted or more active people. The hours are a lot, but a good 9-5 job (can be as early as 8 am to as late as 10 pm). Too many hours can be exhausting and overwhelming but if it is hours you want, hours you will get! Also very secure job.

Good Pay and Good Stress

We were paid very well, but we were also expected to do a lot more sales than I had thought. Amazing company and some great workers. They become like family.

Good workplace

Good workplace for not needing any diploma or schooling. Friendly staff and hours are generally fair. Wage increase helps with the cost of living. Costco giving a free membership to all workers is also very kind and appropriate of them.

Extremely hard to get hired on for a full time postion

Great pay but the people working there are very snobby and judgemental. There manangement are not understanding about personal issues and expect costco to come before anything in your life. If your not willing to put them first then bad place to work. Also they dont like outsiders. They are all dating or in some kind of relationship they appreciate the ones who work less and under appreciate the real hard workers

Points positifs

The pay

Points négatifs

Hard to get hired on

Not a great job for a young family

The job itself is not difficult. The people (public and colleagues) are a different story. If you don't have a thick skin, this type of customer service is not for you. There is ZERO consistency in the schedule. Meaning, you could work 9-5 one day, and 6 - 11 pm the next. If you have a young family, or want to have any type of social/family life, this is not the place for you. It is impossible to plan your life around your schedule, even while receiving your schedule 2 weeks in advance. The benefits are okay. But Full-time positions are hard to come by. So, while Costco pays for your core coverage benefits regardless, you still only get "part-time" benefits. You can also work 38.5 hours a week and still only be a part-time employee. They also honour a "seniority" based system for new opportunities and advancement, while having no other perks of a union. The starting wage is $15/hr and you have to work an insane amount of hours to get bumped up by $0.50/hr.

Points positifs

Job doesn't require a lot of "mental ability" or mental stamina, small groups of great colleagues.

Points négatifs

No consistency, hard to advance, can be labour intensive and hard on your body.

Horrible management staff, great co workers

-fun, fast pace work environment -sub par benefits but a good pension/ rrsp program -management was that of the worst I have yet to experience. Imagine 4 best friends with bad attitudes managing a warehouse. That’s the Windsor Costco If corporate paid any attention to the Windsor location they would realize a change in management is desperately needed.

Points positifs

Pension/rrsp program

Points négatifs

Management!

It is good if you want a lot of hours

I am currently in the student program at Costco, and it is amazing because they give me time to focus on my studies, however when I do work, it's usually over time. But you get a lot of money so there's a benefit!

Points positifs

Breaks, Pay, Benefits, Student Program, Friendly people

Points négatifs

Long Hours, Overtime, Heavy lifting, Very busy

CDS Demonstrator

During my time at Costco Wholesale I gave out food samples. while demonstrating nutrition and pricing information. The work culture involves worker morale and customer satisfaction. A typical day at work is fast paced since crowds of people approach our demo tables everyday. There is lots of responsibility following WHIMIS and Health and food regulations when new to the job. Management is very organized with our work schedules. The most enjoyable parts of the job is meeting and greeting visitors while demonstrating food to crowds; Its pretty thrilling to me. Learning nutrition information having small conversations about it with customers. A perk we have is trying out samples before selling them so that we provide our honest opinion about the food we provide.

Points positifs

Pay above minimum wage, health benefits, vacation time

Points négatifs

I don't have negative to say because for a short period of time.

Great Company, TERRIBLE local management

Costco is a great company to work for, just don't do it in Windsor. Head office treats Windsor like an afterthought, and the stagnant mgmt. is allowed to destroy the corporate culture through ineptitude and petty cruelty. Saw many, many examples of bullying and sexist behaviour exhibited by mgmt. Many excellent employees will be forever overlooked due to the "old boys club" in mgmt that has been allowed to thrive for more than a decade.

Points positifs

Good pay for the work

Points négatifs

Schedule is ridiculous due to terrible local mgmt.

Great Culture, people, and Organization

Great place to work with great people and culture. Very fast paced and there is always something to do. Great if you like working with your hands. Time flies when you work. Opportunity to work autonomously when the store closes and they play music on the speakers. Loved working here- had to leave because there was a 10 year waiting list for full time employment. As soon as I left, they opened full time positions left and right. Whoops

Points positifs

fast paced, great people

Points négatifs

can be physically demanding

costco summary A day on the job at costco Whole sale

A day at work would be helping the cashier put the groceries back in the cart cleaning up the store and putting items back on the floor. I learned that that when you clock out late or clock out late on your break you have to sign this book that's in the hr office. Management is really nice to all their employees they treat us really well there. The workplace culture is you'll never be bored they'll always have something for us to do. the most hardest part of the job is lifting heavy objects when doing putting items back on the floor like the flooring and dog food and most definitely the water. the most enjoyable part of my job is the people I get to work with or the people I get to see. I see a lot of people I know.

Points positifs

everyone is super nice to employees with special needs

Points négatifs

breaks are not always ontime
