    I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time

    Pros

    The pay is decent, in Vancouver $13/hr, on Sundays you get $4 extra per hour.
    Free Costco membership
    If you were for longer, you have the opportunity to get benefits

    Cons

    Hard work, expect you to work very hard and fast
    Work is very repetitive, unless you're into that then this is for you
    As one of the younger employees there, most employees are a lot older, and if you want to have fun, most of them are just there to work, and don't really want to make conversation with you, more-so look down upon you.
