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.
customer service (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 24, 2016
First and foremost Costco is an excellent company. It is an extremely fast paced environment. Your co-workers are truly more like family, everyone is very close. The company itself offers many incentives such as great health benefits, yearly bonuses and promotional opportunities. I learned a wealth of knowledge in customer service and deescalating issues. I also learned how to run a high volume department, as well as manage and supervise many employees. The hardest part of the job is not the fast pace that you naturally grow into that because of the nature of the business. The hardest part is learning to work in such a large warehouse with so many different personalities. The most enjoyable part is the gratification you get when a customer/ member is satisfied with your work. Costco is really about helping everyday people.

Costco was a good place to work at. the managers were willing to listen to you if you had an issue. They also asked for input on how to improve process. They also asked what they can do to help make our jobs more productive.
Seasonal Staffer (Former Employee) – Newport News, VA – July 20, 2016
Seasonal staff is only asked to stay on with the company if they are willing to do remedial tasks. Opportunities are only afforded to those with years of employment not by merit or quality of work/experience.
Pushed a broom for hours, cleaned toilets, break rooms, emptied trash and trash containers, push floor scrubbers. Learned you can not leave a Department for any reason, have to apply and Interview for opening positions, not even for medical reasons.
Great place to shop
All companies have there favorites and they are the ones who are promoted
Cashier Assistant (Former Employee) – Anchorage, AK – July 14, 2016
There is a unique quality in being a COSTCO employee. In addition to health benefits, progressive advance, and bonus opportunities, COSTCO seems to pride itself on an outstanding membership approval. This employer deters from the term of "customer", as it would imply a discouraging stigma associated with shopping at other stores. Being an employee meant being part of a family, metaphorically speaking. Very few jobs would present a sense of comfort that would make one think of a job as a career, like COSTCO has.
Good pay, good benefits, excellent opportunity for advancement.
