Fast paced work environment
Food Service Worker (Former Employee), Astoria, NYJuly 6, 2015
A typical day at work consists of helping hundreds of customers in your field or department. I learned that you need to move fast and have the ability to multi-task to be productive in this job. Co-workers are somewhat helpful, but most people fend for self. Hardest part of the job is trying to get someone to assist you with something, especially because everyone is so busy and has their own obligations. The most enjoyable part of the job was the Sunday Pay.

Great Company long term
Front End Supervisor (Current Employee), CAJuly 6, 2015
Pros: 401k, health benefits.
Cons: Upper management playing favorites. Not about what you know but who you know.
Costco is a great company to work for that will be around for years to come. There is room for growth and opportunity to move up within the company. Management plays favorites but what company doesn't. Each store has its own dynamic. Don't be afraid to transfer between stores because sometimes the fit isn't always the best at the store you work for.

A job hard to quit
Cashier/Stocker (Former Employee), Madison Heights, MIJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Health insurance, employee of the months, raises, family, and other amazing things
Cons: No cons
I can honestly say that I loved working for Costco Wholesale and coming into work. I would show up 15 minutes early to make sure everything was put away and check in with my managers to see what my shift was going to entail and be like. I usually would do go-backs, then would report back to front end and stay on the register for the remainder of the shift, unless otherwise. I learned to be a forgivable and passionate person since working for a worldwide recognizable company you would to remain calm, collective and concentrated. I loved my workers dearly. Their vibrant and smiling faces is what made the job possible during the rush of members.

Good Workplace
Stocker (Current Employee), Easton, OHJuly 1, 2015
Pros: lunches and breaks, 401k, employee benefits.
Cons: Random hours, working Sundays
Reliable workplace with a good environment of a diverse group of people. Mangers are nice and accommodating to new employees. The company as a whole takes care of their employees and it is an environment in which you can start as the low employee on the totem pole and rise to a manager/supervisor position in due time.

Front End Assistant (Former Employee), San Diego, CAJune 29, 2015
a Typical day at work would be very fast paced ,hectic and hands on.i learned that you cant make everyone happy while i was working there. the management was somewhat hard to get used to,but gave alot of time and effort in providing for the company. the co-workers were very diverse and friendly. often easy to become acquainted with and very helpful.the hardest part of the job would have to be the constant incoming customers and the unfair treatment from managers at times. the only enjoyable part of the job was the benefits and the pay.

Pros: No pros
Cons: No Con
The typical working day start at 4:00 AM which began with a walk through the assigned area. Manager informed you as to what needed to done. You learned a lot of methods and ways that is safer and easy to apply. The hard part of the job is massive pressure and lack of time to accomplished those task. The most enjoyable part of the job is completing the day task.
