Assistant Buyer - Foods Department (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – December 26, 2017
As an employee of Costco for 16+ years, I started working in the warehouse before transferring to the buying office. This allowed me to know what happened in the warehouse when buying for the different departments I handled in buying. It taught me how the warehouse worked (actually opened a new location so there before it was open to public) and then in turn how the whole buying process worked.

come with your willingness to achieve the daily goals while providing exceptional service to members. Have a good positive attitude and leave what ever is going on in your personal life at the door so members and employees have a great work / shopping experience.
Great place for hard workers looking to gain experience
Cashier Assistant/Bakery wrapper (Former Employee) – Eugene, OR – March 8, 2018
Great place to work, I was only a seasonal while working their but they offer good hours to hard workers and plenty of room for diversifying your work experience based on your own personal application. Flexible hours as well.
Wages are higher on average than other retailers, good benefits for permanent workers, flexible hours
Difficult place to get hired if lacking social skills and unambitious
Bakery/ Warehouse / Lot Attendant (Seasonal) (Former Employee) – Brookfield,CT – March 8, 2018
nice place to work, enjoyed my time there and would like to be hired on full time, you work hard but it is worth it good place to work they have a nice facility with a large break room and kept clean everyone was very nice to me
Costco has a nice lunch or break room and very clean
Although I was seasonal, It was a nice place to work and interact with people. The pay sufficed for the work being done and you receive raises by simply working the allotted hours until you reach the minimum hours for a 50 cents raise. If you work there it can be explained better. The products they sell are worth the money and they offer a vast amount of healthy options as well.
Front End Assistant (Current Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – March 7, 2018
This is an easy job for the pay. Management communication could be a little better so that there is not as much stress among the employees. You can meet a lot of cool, hard working individuals. A lot of upper management started as assistants and have little to no schooling. Very hard to get fired, especially after 2 years.
Major Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Brandon, FL – March 6, 2018
If your looking to grow within a good company, it's a great place to work. If not, then it will be stressful. If your in college, this can be a good job if your saving money for it. If your focused on school, it is not the best option.
stock clerk (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – March 6, 2018
My first job out of the military. Management was horrible. Store manager was a slave driver. Only cared about herself and her bonuses. Always made you feel less of a person if you addressed an issue. Really made me not like coming to work. And I worked there for 4 years and was still only part time.
CASHIER AND FOOD SERVICE (Former Employee) – Colorado – March 6, 2018
Costco was a great place with good benefits. However, the culture definitely did not fit my personality. The hiring wage is more than fair, and for the most part everyone there is incredibly nice and helpful. I just could not see myself there for years.
Rampant favoritism. Rude management and supervisors.
Front End Worker (Current Employee) – Rego Park, NY – March 6, 2018
Terrible culture and environment to work in. The only way to move up is if you’re friends with a manager. Supervisors and managers yell and berate workers constantly. The place is filthy and if a manager doesn’t like you, you’ll get falsely written up. There’s no defense to the write ups and they will tell you that management gets the last word. So there’s nothing you can do even if you’re falsely written up. It happens all the time.
