I prepare and distribute samples to club members (Current Employee) – Leesburg, VA – June 13, 2017
Enjoyable contact with repeat customers and fellow workers. I am unhappy with the management, due to inconsistency of daily scheduling, change in daily duties, and attitude changes constantly. The hardest part of the job, is being confined to one spot for 6 hours, with no exercise. I enjoy the ability to meet so many people from different ethnic groups.
no early shift, and no late shift
short breaks, no chance of advancement, no insurance
This was a fun work place the team was like family

I enjoyed working with the team I had they were like family and I am sad to be gone the o my thing I didn't agree with was policy that were not across the board they were not consistent in up holding each store to every policy and they didn't keep everyone on the same page

Cooking food for Costco members isn't hard, but dealing with their attitudes toward you as a person sucks. There's no appreciation or even acknowledgment that you're even there sometimes. Management, from my experience, isn't very reliable and as such, causes you to be without samples for sometimes 20-30 minutes.
Loved working there sometimes, but sometimes supervisors will make things complicated

I believe it was better when everyone did their own things, like for an example wash their own dishes, set their own cart, and as well clean their own cart. Manager will put some people to wash dishes, some on carts and on trash. When we will do dishes or carts there wasn’t enough time to finished it was really hard to do so.
Short lunch breaks, short time on setting up carts, the pay is to low

i liked this job very much! the pay was great, the environment was nice! the benefits were great! the only thing that really sucked was the fact that you have to stand for hours trying to sell sample and it really sucked if you got the healthy snacks lol cause they are the hardest to sell! plus they monitor how many times you use the bathroom and how long you might have taken.
the pay! they pay above minimum wage just to stand there and sell samples!
nice place to work with helpful management and staff

Your mangers dont know how to do their jobs. When an employee loses a family you should not get written up for it. Your mangers need to learn not to speak to an employee about a write up in front of other employees

Pay is pretty good for p-t and very flexible work schedule. However, you do get cancelled a lot so can’t really count on steady paycheck. No benefits. Was disappointed that we received no holiday bonus when we really had to step up our game. Our members increased substantially and we worked really hard to keep samples available for them. The hardest part of the job is pushing the heavy carts across the warehouse and having to lift the oven out/in the cart and standing in one place for 6.5 hours. The most enjoyable part of the job is seeing a lot of people you know.
