Great co-workers, bad customers

Because Costco is based on membership fees in order to shop there, a lot of members feel like they are always right, despite many people telling them differently. There is a huge sense of entitlement. I would recommend working here, 100%, just make sure you don't take the job home with you.

Extremely welcoming environment

This place rocks. I had worked there for just under 2 years and made a lot of good friends. Unfortunately I had to leave because the environment for me (with social anxiety) would leave me feeling very distraught and stressed on holidays, weekends when they were especially busy. There is room for advancement and they pay/benefits are great for retail. The one thing about the company is that advancement is based on seniority not necessarily work ethic/qualifications.

Points positifs

Great co workers and opportunity to move around in the company

Points négatifs

Gets very stressful/overwhelming when it is busy

Productive workplace. Minimal understanding for employee complaints.

Typical day at work was average. Consisted of busy work and repetitive tasks, but non of it was hard. Training lacked in many aspects and management was often hard to seek if you needed assistance. Most enjoyable part of the job was fellow employees.

Points positifs

Easy work

Points négatifs

Odd hours

Fun

fun and fast paced. hard work but good pay. management is a hierarchy and people are moved up in the company based on favorites rather than seniority that costco is known for.

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.

Good Staff, stressful environment

Very busy place with so many members in store. The coworkers around you help to make it through the hectic days. Typically 2 coffee breaks and 1 30min lunch break for a normal 8hr shift.

Good company to work for.

Costco was a good company to work for however the management is poor. Stress levels are high working there but they offer great incentives! Working for Costco is great for hard workers.

Points positifs

Benefits, Free Memberships, Vacation, $100 boot voucher for work boots.

Points négatifs

Rarely overtime, poor management, difficult raises, high stress environment

Enjoyable Work place

People are fun to work with, with plenty of work to do, always keeping you busy. Managers of the front end are respectable and knowledgeable about the company

Excellent people

The job itself is fast paced and a fun environment. All the long timers are very very nice and help you out wherever you need it. The trouble is time off. They aren’t willing to give you any weekends off, so if you need a weekend off try to switch it yourself or as the long timers say.... call in sick. The wage is just above minimum so don’t think you go in there and get paid big bucks....

Points positifs

Great people

Points négatifs

Pay is ok

Not the best company to work for.

The work required was not only not specified in the interview but also when requested to work shift work in a rotation, the rotation aspect was not respected.

Decent workplace

Costco does not allow you to chosose the hours you are available, you MUST be available to work at all times, including weekends. This makes it a pain to schedule anything else around it because the work hours are so strange. Customers are usually nice, but when it it busy, can be extremely grumpy. Management is understanding if you are an older employee, but students get the short end of the stick.

Points positifs

Points négatifs

Everyone was helpful, productive and kind

A typical day at work was packing carts for the cashiers, folding clothes and restocking left over items to shelves. I learning how to properly load carts, and which items belong/do not belong next to each other. The management was fantastic, there was always someone there to answer any questions. The culture was filled with hard working people, everyone was really helpful and kind. The hardest part of the job was learning where everything is in the store due to the face they often changed item locations. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with all of the people.

Points positifs

Fantastic place to work with wonderful people.

It was an amazing place to work, where effort is noticed and willingness to complete tasks is valued. The group became a second family and I loved spending my time there, both on and off the clock. I will gladly work for the company again.

Points positifs

Benefits at part time.

Points négatifs

Scheduling can be difficult to book around.

Full of stress and Horrible Managment

Worked at Peterborough Costco for a while as Merchandise/Front End a while back ago before I was freed. People are nice there and wage/benefits are good. But Managment is the real joke here. Front end Managers are usually running around like chickens with their heads cut off though and there is too much bullying/drama. To try and move up in Costco you need seniority or kissing butt through the roof. Also they are understaffed as the one who runs the building wants best building award so people have to work like there is three of them. The worst part is the merchandising.Theres one manager who constantly harasses you,even if you’re the best worker imaginable. He will ride your butt until you break. It’s so bad that if he sees you take a free breath he will run over to you to harass.He’s also creepy and confrontational. Worst manager I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Benefits, Wages

Abusive/toxic work environment

Working with the public on a day to day basis can be a very difficult task in itself. Working at one of the busiest warehouses in North America has it’s challenges and unfortunately the biggest one is management. They let the members do whatever they want, undermining the staff who try to maintain company policy. Eventually you become numb to your purpose as an employee and turn up to work just for the paycheck. :(

Well organized

Costco Wholesale supports and manages its employees very well. This job taught me how to be extremely efficient in a very timely manor, as well as improved my customer service skills.
