fast pace friendly environment
Front End Associate (Former Employee), Merced, CAJuly 10, 2014
a typical day at work i would arrive an hour early so i could see what i had to do before it was time to clock in usually it was busy so after i clock in they would send me outside to pull in carts from the parking lot i would generally do this all day because i was really good at it. if it was a good day i would be inside either helping the cashier – more... or restocking the merchandise. if that was all finished i would help customers lift objects they couldn't do on their own. that was a typical day.

i learned quite a bit from costco like the work environment is a family everyone helped each other out all the time and i wasn't familiar with that i was always the person that learned something on his own.

the managers and supervisors were so understanding and nice they were down to earth unlike other places i worked.

the hardest part of my job was not getting overwhelmed from all the people who would walk up at once and demand my service as i was helping another customer out.

the most enjoyable part of working at costco was getting to know all the people that worked at costco building relationships friendships and memories at the workplace it was a difficult job but a fun and exciting one also. – less

Fast pace and meeting deadline on a daily basis in a safe manner!
Forklift operator (Former Employee), Turlock, CAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere, great people and work related events
Cons: no steady weekly work schedule and no overtime
The first five hours (5am-10am) is re-stocking and/or re-merchandising the sales floor at a fast and safe manner where being disciplined is necessary to achieve our main goal, always working with a team we learned how to be "team players" and achieving our goal is very rewarding

Secure but complacent....
Pharmacy Technician Supervisor (Current Employee), Corona, CAJuly 8, 2014
Pros: vacation and benefits
Cons: employees and corporate management
The job security is great and the benefits are almost unbeatable. Job advancement is subpar and corporate management lacks a lot knowledge of the retail business. Hard to make advancements at a certain level and pay raises are very slow. Typical staff is a hit and miss. Very hard for the employer to terminate bad employees. Company lacks any disciplinary – more... guidelines to rid themselves of bad employees who are hurting the Costco brand. – less

Forklift Operator (Current Employee), lancaster paJuly 7, 2014
I started July 22 2002 to present. I install tires and supervise a garage ensuring vehicles leave the shop in a safe and timely manner. I have learned that patience and empathy goes a long with customers and leading by example is the best way to run a crew. My managers lead the way in professionalism in ensuring safety and fallowing protocol, they provide – more... the assets that are needed for me to get the job done. My co-workers are knowledgeable and urgent at getting the job done. Hardest part of the job would be dealing with an under staffed department during a promotional period and or holiday. I enjoy working with other people who are also goal oriented. – less

I was working with food. I would sample certain foods, candy or juices. I would gather my supplies for that sample and them would set up in my area and talk to customers about what I was sampling and would get feed back, comments.

A great International Job
Front End/ Front End Runner/Carts (Former Employee), Cedar Park, TXJuly 2, 2014
Pros: livable wage. enough said.
Cons: none what so ever.
There is a reason there are Veterans working at Costco. Retired Veterans at that. A typical day of work at Costco? Great overall. I'm a mover. I've gone back to replace members items and made it back before the items were done being scanned. I've learned to cut down time and increase my efficiency within the first week of work. Coworkers are on the – more... same page. I've made great friends within the company. Hardest part of the job? If there is anything hard with this job it was either a different department, I've worked for the Front End mainly, and Deli secondary, or I personally didn't find anything hard about the job at all.
The Most enjoyable part of the job? The People in general. The Supervisors, Managers, Coworkers, Members, etc. I literally use gas to go to and from work. That's it. Eat lunch there either brought or bought. Stay in the A/C, heat in the winter. – less

Most days I was managing the bakery at night, setting up for the next day and helping customers. It was a great place to work, the manager would call me in some days if they were short staffed and I was more than happy to come in.
