Fast Pace Environment to get Members in and out the store
Front End Assistant (Former Employee) –  San Jose, CAJanuary 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.
Pros
fun job, free food sometimes, working with multiple people with different ages
Cons
Members are rude sometimes

One of the best environments to work in.
Front-End Assistant (Former Employee) –  Jacksonville, FLApril 22, 2018
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.
Pros
Environment and co-workers
Cons
Almost too repetitive

Treated people like cattle. No one supervisor for maintenance position so who had the everybody that worked there telling you what to do even though they had no right to.
Pros

Poor management, no solid schedule, to far a drive, overworked and under staffed during busy days
