Intense 2 week training and a little getting use to.
E-Commerce Agent (Former Employee) – Yakima, WA – August 14, 2017
Was only there for a month due to being forced to move back home (1800 miles away), I'm a person who loves a job with a lot going on at once and this was one of those jobs. Coworkers were friendly and very helpful. The Costco CEO made me glad to be working for that company because he took pride in his employees. Should watch a video about the man.
Good pay, opportunity to move up, costco membership, always busy
Training was like being in a summer college class, they unload a massive amount of info in just 2 weeks.

Costco is a good company just not enough hours for me personally, I tried many time to get cross training in other department as they stated we would be ,but no one want wants to take time to train you unless they are in a bind ,I think they should have meeting with everyone instead of random employees so we can all be on the same page with everything

Costco is a fast moving cutthroat environment. I have learned that working here you definitely have to stay on your toes. I wouldn't talk very much and I would try to work as fast as I can to stay in the clear.

Food Court Crew Member (Former Employee) – Tacoma, WA – August 11, 2017
Working there was for sure my best work experience, the management was great, and a regular day there just flew by due to how busy it would get. It was like a family environment there and everyone got along. I learned speed and precision is everything there, though the hardest part was keeping the speed up! It had to be constant, regardless how slow/busy it was.
Paid sick days, paid vacation days, paid overtime every Sunday, full benefits.
Clerk/Cashier (Current Employee) – Nashua, NH – August 10, 2017
There Is no typical day at work It changes everyday but I would have to say punch in find out what needs to be done depending on the shift and helping with the members needs. I have learned to work in a huge warehouse type of environment with different people. The management makes sure the place runs smoothly and does their best to take care of the employees and members. The hardest past of the job is probably doing store wide inventory. The most enjoyable is knowing i went that extra mile to help someone.
great starting pay and benefits ability to move within and inner promotion.
Service Clerk (Current Employee) – Mira Loma, CA – August 9, 2017

Supervisor/Manager (Current Employee) – Kirkland, WA – August 8, 2017
As a merchandising supervisor or manager your day starts early usually around 4 AM. You start the shift by looking at what is products are coming in. Then you make decisions on when to put the product and how you display it prior to stocking staff start time. Then you manage the staff to get the sales floor stocked and ready. Down time is used to run reports, write schedule, reviews, etc.
Free membership, great healthcare
Busy and feel like you don't have Enough time to get everything done
A typical day at my work place would be interacting with Costco members. Ensuring the member is satisfied with their experience at Costco. Fast paced working to make sure each car gets completed in a reliable time span. Working together with the Management team to help settle member issues. I raise the vehicles with a lift. mount and balance the tires. The hardest part of my job is making sure each customer leaves happy and is willing to come back to Costco.
Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Kalamazoo, MI – August 8, 2017
I worked at Costco in the Clothing Department. I mainly stocked and helped customers locate their desired products and occasionally did moves. The co-workers were very nice and employees are paid fair.
