Fast Pace Environment to get Members in and out the store
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – January 28, 2014
I would either push at least 7 carts which weight 15 pounds for over 3 hours. I could cashier with an assistant helping me put the food in boxes I could also be an assistant to the cashier where i would run around the store if the member couldn't find anything. When it is slow, i put items back to where they belong or fold clothes. At Costco, i learned to work in a very fast pace and to remember everyday is different due to the members. Our Costco was one of the busiest Costco so working fast is a must. When i would get items in the back i would have to run to the back. Management was okay, sometimes they did play favorites. The hardest part of the job was pushing the carts outside because i would be doing it for hours and under extreme weather conditions.
fun job, free food sometimes, working with multiple people with different ages
I had a great time meeting people and got along well with my co-workers. The managers were amazing and easy to talk to and the whole experience was fast paced but manageable. My job was only seasonal however, I do not believe I ever had a bad day at work.
