Great place to work with a great environment to work in
Front End (Former Employee), WoodinvilleSeptember 16, 2014
Work is a lot of the same working at the front end. There are a variety of things that you can be doing at any given time. You will most likely be loading and unloading carts while talking to the customer and making sure that they have everything. If they forgot something or they need something it is my responsible for fetching the item and bringing – more... it back for the customer. You can also be grabbing boxes from different areas in the store to bring back to the front in case a customer wants one to carry their groceries in. Some days you will be put on cart duty which means that you will be returning carts from the different cart return areas around the lot. Co-workers are friendly and overall you are just working with them. On breaks you have time to talk, but you are generally paying attention to the customer and what they need because it is a very fast paced environment. The hardest part of the job is dealing with difficult customers, who either don't like something you are doing or are just having a bad day and tend to have a bad attitude with it. But that is a minor detail. It really isn't a "hard" part to that job. The most enjoyable part of that job is being able to see satisfied customers and being able to help people as often as I can. – less

Productive leadership with fun work environment
Safety Coordinator (Current Employee), Rockwall, TxSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: benefits and pay
Cons: lack of upward movement in our building
Constant learning of new departments. Our managers all know us by name and that means a lot because it makes us feel important.
My co-workers are very diverse and I appreciate that because it gives us the opportunity to learn new things and how others think.
The hardest part of the job is the lack of training in a new department; sometimes they make – more... you feel as if they do not have time to train you properly.
The most enjoyable part of the job is how much the managers trust you to work on your own and to get the job done. I love being able to take breaks when I want/need to. – less

Front End Cashier / Associate (Current Employee), Waldorf, MDSeptember 10, 2014
Pros: breaks, memberships for me and family free
Cons: short lunch
I always come to work prepared dressed and allowing myself 20 minutes before any shift to rep are for updates or instructions. I dress professional and always smile. I learned that to never take a consumer that is having a bad to personal. I learned to listen and a offer ways to resolve the problem for the consumer keeping in mind I too am them when – more... I am in the retail world. The hardest part for me is I'm overly helpful and I constantly evaluate my work for perfection and quality. I love meeting people from different backgrounds and experiencing their shopping quest as I get to see different foods and how their cultures live. – less

A great place to work, wonderful benefit packages
Assistant Pastry Chef (Current Employee), Nanuet, NYSeptember 7, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: short breaks
A typical workday consist of getting the items prepared for the customers, and always remember that they come first and keep an eye out for the products because we have to stay stock. I learned a lot about how to run a business and the challenges of running a business. The job isn't that really hard when you know what you're doing and you do it in a – more... timely manner. – less

Maintenance (Current Employee), Charlotte, NCSeptember 6, 2014
Pros: benifits
Great Benefits and company practice and procedure. There are areas that I believe could be improved upon. It's nice to work for a place where you are encouraged to do your best. Warehouse 359 is a rather negative, stifling atmosphere. I stay positive though. :)

Good Overall Experience
Return to Vendor/Receiving Secretary (Current Employee), Saint Peters, MOSeptember 2, 2014
Pros: good pay, occasional free lunch, good coworkers
Cons: management is lackluster, undesirable hours, retail environment
Costco is possibly one of the best retail work environments one will find. The pay and benefits are very good (especially compared to the industry). The shift hours are less desirable. Employees are expected to work shifts starting at 4 a.m. through 11:30 at night, and working on weekends is also part of the schedule. Holidays will see overnight shifts – more... and long hours as well. Management will work even more. The hardest part of the job is the hours, and incompetent management. – less
