AM Stocker/ Tire Shop assistant/ Meat Wrapper (Former Employee) – Alpharetta, GA – August 6, 2017
The environment here is very stressful but it pays off. You work hard and long enough management will notice and try to give you different responsibilities to see if you are ready to be promoted to another level.
Bakery Wrapper (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – August 4, 2017
Management always gets the job done but that doesn't mean they do it correctly, they also never take the time to properly show you how they want things done, they just ask for it and complain why you don't do it the way they want. Its a lot of repetitive work and getting promoted is difficult because they decide to promote on seniority instead of hard workers. The benefits are awesome and the pay is decent but definitely goes up over the years.
Maintenance Assistant (Former Employee) – Middleton, WI – August 4, 2017
Great pay and benefits. Fast paced work environment. Very hard to get a stable schedule. Good upward mobility if you're willing to move or buy management coffee everyday. Terrible management due to rapid expansion. Selective enforcement of policies depending on how well management likes you. Middleton store has a toxic work environment due to poor management as of Aug 2017.
very physical type of work with positive results and a lot of benefits

my experience in working at Costco was very positive. I learned how to keep a balance of working multiple different positions and having the opportunity to be challenged in different environment in such a short term.
Baker/Cake Decorator/Service Deli Assistant (Former Employee) – San Luis Obispo, CA – August 3, 2017
I loved Costco and my time there. I still recommend it to anyone that asks. It was fast paced but exciting. The benefits and compensation cannot be topped by any other business in the industry; in my opinion.
Bakery Assistant (Former Employee) – Boston Heights, OH – August 3, 2017
I absolutely loved working for Costco. As a student they were able to work with my limited schedule while keeping my hours high enough for my needs. I felt that the pay was excellent and there was always opportunities to advance within the company. Highly recommend Costco Wholesale for anyone looking for employment.
cashier, stocking, assist packing customers carts, obtain items that were left behind and return them back to appropriate area, call other stores to verify if item is in stock at other costco locations.
Great place to work, Needs better management training
Cashier (Former Employee) – Azusa, CA – August 2, 2017
I loved working for Costco. I advanced three positions within my probation period. At the end of my probation period I was offered a supervisor position that I accepted. I was then fired by an over zealous supervisor who was harassing me with phone calls when I called out for a shift because I was with my new born son in the NICU. She lacked empathy or compassion because she believed my job should come before my family.
Sales (Current Employee) – Tumwater, WA – August 1, 2017
Whether you want to work at a Costco for just a little while or your entire career, you will find the options and opportunities available at Costco. Costco promotes from within. Costco culture is very healthy and balanced. They always have their employees do the right thing and focus on customer service at all times, and they will compensate you very well for your efforts.
Regular breaks, good starting pay, great benefits.
Fast paced work at all times, especially during the holidays!
