Overall reviews at Costco Wholesale
Working for WDS alongside Costco as a Demonstrater | Trafford
| 14 Sep 2017
Productive, fun work place.
Fully enjoyed my job as a Demonstrater at Costco. I would set my own table up and orgazine any equipment I would be using that day and then I had to go around the warehouse with a trolley and find the product I would be using for my demonstration. Then read the products information on a sheet given to us by the boss and list any food allergies or good key points about the product ready for customers to view. The main task was to keep my table clean and prepared as well as selling the product the best I could to customers.
same from day to day
depending on which department your working within, it can be very repetitive, friendly people to work with, but some days be very depressing. breaks are timed via a swipe card system , some managers think they own you...

Good for young adults
Great experience and wonderful workers
Great environment to work at
I would recommend young adults to apply for this company
colleagues are good
it is a great place to work, busy and fast paced, for a normal job it is really good, but if you are after fast progression it is not always the easiest.

Worked with a good team and was taught how to operate tills and carry out refunds. The hardest part of the job is that at times it was very fast-paced.

Paid to put up with poor managerial training and designs.
Gained great knowledge of many different departments which brought great amounts of stresses and tasks to deal with and learn from. Made my way through the ranks and made the most of opportunities.
Treated everyone fairly as I seek to be treated and gave 100%, even when times were hard I took leadership to get the team reunited to complete the tasks at hand.
ProsGood pay .
Conspoor treatment and conditions

verry virsatile and amenable.
progressive in work conditions with great possibilities for future advancement and prospects for travel even to other countries with good bonus system after two years
Prosgood work conditions
Conscan be long hours or not enough
Fair with wages
Although it was a fast paced environment, it was well managed except for often being under staffed. Costco is a great company for the customer and when working on a Sunday, they did offer a differential that many retailers don't.
Stressful and alot of favoritism
Wouldn't recommend, not very rewarding. Always worked extremely hard with it being unnoticed. Care more about sales than employees. Was bullied there, not only by employees but by management aswell
Some locations are great, others are awful.
Don't work for Costco in the Texas region. It's a whole other company and set of values. Good 'ol boys, rule! I have never seen so much drama stirred up by management, as in Texas. They are always looking for ways to get rid of the people they don't like (for whatever reason, usually for wanting to move up and expressing it to the wrong manager).
An employee needs to practice humility, realize there are dues to pay and be ready to work hard in order to succeed at Costco.
Working at Costco requires high energy, meeting customer needs first, focus on what is required, having strong visual-spatial abilities and being a team player.
Great place to work
Great place to work and Costco value every of your contribution and innovations. Treat employee and their family with care. Create atmosphere friendliness.
Fasted paced, a fun environment
Typical day at Costco is always busy in the warehouse.
Learned to work hard and efficiently.
Management was friendly.
Best part of the job was the people you meet.

Healthy place to work with great people
Costco was great. They have amazing benefits and the best company structure. The company cares about their employees as well as their customers. The great structure of the company makes it a very rewarding career.
pharmacy tech position is underpaid and over worked
pharmacy tech position is underpaid and over worked
pharmacists were great with helping to learn and answer questions
the computer system is SEVERELY outdated, I transferred from CVS who had a very high up to date system which took a while to learn when moving to costco, literally like pre-historic. the pay is better and benefits are AWESOME at costco but hard to make a living as a pharmacy tech at costco, they go on years you work not the quality of the work you do.
Proslearn about medication
Good benefits and good long term job
I had a hard time here because of a lot of favoritism. People were hired being related to other co-workers not because of work ethic. Those people then got special jobs and treatment. Plus if you were a but kiss you tend to get the same treatment. I did not like it here. I work hard and I'm good at what I do. It felt like pushing a big rock up a hill to try and get somewhere there.
Overall A Great Job
A great experience to learn different departments and be more efficient in everyday tasks. Get to interact with customers and make friends on the job.
