Fun and Fast Pace place to work.
Food Court Employee (Current Employee), Iwilei, HIJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: good benefits, good pay, free membership
The best part about this job is being able to provide the customers with the desired food in a fast pace environment. There is no time that you aren't busy and it makes the job fun and enjoyable. The hardest part of this job is working at the pizza window because you must cut the pizzas that are coming out of the oven, a three level oven as well as hand out pizzas to customers that have ordered. You must also be able to load the pizzas, chicken bakes, as well as the sandwiches that can be purchased by customers. The hardest time to do this is at night when there is less workers and you are sometimes short handed. Through working the night shift, you learn to be independent and to always stay ahead of the crowd. You learn to be able to work at a fast efficient pace because at times you are on your own. This gives you the responsibility of providing great customer service as well as great awareness to the things going on around you. We have great workers as well as management that allow for a smooth daily routine that everyone learns and can follow.

Typical Restaurant Job
Cashier (Current Employee), Stoughton, MAJanuary 22, 2015
Pros: the co-workers, you can always pick up hours, or have someone take your hours
Cons: no breaks alot of the time, poor management
Hours have to be fought for, and are consistently changed. The people who work there are young and fun mostly, however, they sometimes do not focus on the customer enough, Management was poor. They constantly made scheduling mistakes and at times were incompetent.

Front End Cashier (Former Employee), 1890 S. University Drive Davie, Florida 33315January 20, 2015
A typical day at work was always very busy. I learned hoe to run members through my line very fast and very efficiently. I enjoyed several of my co-workers. I think the hardest part of the job was trying to maintain the number of members through the line that was required and the most ejoyable part of the job was being able to accomplish the tasks I was handed.

Fun people. Busy job
Front-End Assistant (Former Employee), Seattle, WAJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: family type work atmosphere
Cons: seniority (time with company) matters a lot
I enjoyed my time at Costco. I think with such an expansive team you get managers and supervisors you genuinely like and some you don't.
I think the supervisors and managers who cared well and treated others well were the best. There were some co-workers who cared mostly about moving up to management, and didn't care what they needed to do to do it.
I really liked my co-workers. They seemed like family. There were always a few that would always try to take the easy tasks or go home early, but there were mostly good people who worked hard at coming to work ready each day.
The hardest part of the job is that for better or for worse, most Costco's operate on seniority. This incentivizes workers to stay, but I don't know if it demands them to improve. I had a hard time staying motivated when I found out I didn't get a number of opportunities due to experience.
Again, Seattle 01 Costco is like a family sometimes things didn't go well, sometimes the did, but I liked that we took care of each other.

Productive and fun workplace
Deli Clerk (Former Employee), San Bernardino, CAJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: honorary program at lunch or breaks
Cons: not enough hours
I am able to work with a diverse group of people with diverse personalities.
The hardest part of the job would probably be remembering the weight for every different types of food entrees, but we did have a hand book to go by if we needed assistance.
The most enjoyable part of the job was learning something new, it gives us more opportunity to lean and be more knowledgable of what we are making.

Seasonal Employee, Stocker (Former Employee), Tigard, ORJanuary 20, 2015
Pros: occasional free lunches, great company
Cons: seasonal employment, if the hours arent there they wont keep you.
Costco was amazing. The company is great and they really love their employees and customers. My co-workers were awesome. the managers were really nice and helpful but there was a slight lack of communication between them. The hardest part of the job was the physical part, i was lifting anywhere from 5 lbs to 50 lbs up over my head to stock it. But the most enjoyable part was the satisfaction after i was done.
