Bakery Assistant/ front end associate (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – August 30, 2012
Costco gave me alot of customer service experience. Throughout my shift I was constantly approached with customer concerns. I was taught to memorize the stores layout and that was the hardest part of the job. I really enjoyed working with the customers and saying things that left them with a smile.
Cashiers assistant (Former Employee) – Avon, MA – June 24, 2017
This job is similar to a standard retail store, except for the larger sizes/quantities of items. Wider range of people use the store and it can be difficult to adjust to different types of orders. Everything had to be exact and mistakes were corrected quickly.
Morning Merchant Stocker (Former Employee) – Tucson, AZ – June 23, 2017
Costco was an amazing company to work for, great opportunities and benefits as well as a fun friendly environment. I was young and irresponsible during my employment and I wish I could work there again.
you never get bored there is always something to do

Customer Service (Former Employee) – Yakima, WA – June 22, 2017
While the culture is somewhat relaxed, their is a survival mode ongoing. You could go at any moment. Granted, I was a seasonal employee, however, I sensed stress in those who were their awhile. It is very stressful, and people don't seem particularly happy, and that is why I give a 3 stars for the life/work balance.
It is casual
A lot of disconnect, and impersonal nature between employees.
Maintenance Assistant (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 21, 2017
I was with Costco for more than 16 years. Worked in different departments around the store and enjoyed them all. Really great company and they hire good people, which makes for a positive work experience.
FRONT END SUPERVISOR (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – June 20, 2017
A typical day at Costco is very busy, but it helped me learn how to manage my time better. You also meet many different people, from customers to co-workers, which helps with developing better customer service skills. The best part of the job was the fast work pace.
Night Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Missoula, MT 59808 – June 20, 2017
Costco is a fun company to work for, they treat their employees well. The main problem is it is hard to get a job there because employees enjoy working there so much that many will stay until they are able to retire.
Front End Assistant (Current Employee) – Puyallup, WA – June 20, 2017
Great company but the hours are not very good for family life. You are guaranteed 24 hours a week but you will be required to work 5 days a week no matter if you are part time or full time. The employees are great but there is a lot of favoritism there so it can make it harder to move up at times. Also the concrete floors make it hard on your body after working there for many years.
FOOD COURT ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Saint Louis Park, MN – June 20, 2017
Always on your feet. Making pizzas, running/assisting the cashiers in the food court area. Prep in the morning is fun. You get to make all the salads, chicken bakes, sandwiches, and make any other prep for the day.
Front Desk Associate (Former Employee) – Visalia, CA – June 19, 2017
i used to work here as a seasonal in oct 2016 to jan 2017. ther is a lot of drama and bull some of the managers were ok but there was one in particular i hated. the co workers were awesome but the members sometimes sucked. the members can be rude and act like they are better then everyone. i only noticed this recurring pattern with the executive members. the place is packed on sundays its hard to maneuver around. the stress is nuts. the hardest part would be front end. which is what i was. i did enjoy the co workers and the freebies.
