A typical day at work

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.

Stocker (Former Employee), Folsom, CAJune 21, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits, fast paced
Cons: inconsiderate people
I enjoyed stocking shelves, cashiering. I like cashiering cause its fast. Retrieving carts was okay. Cleaning bathrooms not my favorite thing, but we rotated bathroom duty. I had some issues that were personal and I got penalized for them. I should have challenged them, but I did not. They were all legit, excusable points. I have learned a lot from – more... that. I enjoyed the job and would not mind going back. – less

Costco is an excellent company to work for. The work an employee will encounter is demanding and challenging, the wage paid is rewarding.
Deli Manager (Former Employee), Santa Cruz, CAJune 18, 2014
Pros: great pay, a change for advancement, overall fair company to work for.
Cons: hard to transfer from state to state.
Costco required its employees to work hard, work safe, succeed in their job tasks in a fun environment. What I admired so much about Costco was the opportunity to work hard and advance into management that challenged its employees to grow in their personal abilities and job skills. I was able to use my transferable job skills like excellent customer – more... service skills, organization in my work area, good work ethics, in my previous jobs to enhance my ability to learn and add new job skills and allow me to showcase what I had in me and how I was an asset to my team and coworkers. – less

Good place to work, until you want to go to school.
Service Deli Assistant (Former Employee), Norwalk, CAJune 16, 2014
Pros: pay and benefits for part timers was great.
Cons: couldn't get time off to go to school
I loved working here, but I wanted to pursue a degree and shift my skills toward a different direction. Unfortunately, management was unwilling to negotiate with me time off for school, so I decided to leave. I loved the people who I was working along side, I loved interacting with the people shopping.
