Great Benefits and starting pay. Hard to move up without relocation.
Merchandise Coordinator (Current Employee) – East Peoria, IL – October 28, 2013
Overall the Costco company is a great place to work, good money with great benefits and the job keeps one very busy.
I have learned a lot about sales, merchandising, supervising and handling chaotic situations. This job has prepared me to explore new opportunities in the area in which I hope to be able to make a career.
The management staff is helpful, mindful and well educated in the ways of the store. Most of the management team is personable and professional with the exception of a few, but you will find that anywhere. They know what the company needs and get those things done, sometimes it takes a while but work gets done.
I think the hardest part of my job with Costco was the department I was most recently moved into. I found my job mentally tasking as I was placed in a department mainly alone for 8 hours a day. I get my energy from people, from helping them and making sure customers and employees alike are happy. The clothing department wasn't the place for me, but I still made sure work was finished to the highest quality.
The most enjoyable part of my job on a daily basis was the problem solving and member service. I also enjoy learning new things everyday and being able to be versatile employee who can follow as well as lead. Chances where I was able to create, learn, teach and then thrive were by far my best moments.
Benefits, Starting pay
advancement limited to relocation, sunday hours, opportunities in a place where I thrive
