A workplace focused on ethics and obeying the law
If you are an ambitious, energetic person who enjoys a fast-paced team environment filled with challenges and opportunities, you've come to the right place. Our successful employees are service-oriented people with integrity and commitment toward a common goal of excellence. Read on to discover how to pursue employment opportunities with us. Costco offers great jobs, great pay, great benefits and a great place to work.
Merchandising is the lifeblood of Costco, and our business is centered on our warehouse operations. Most employees begin their careers in the warehouse setting, becoming experts in Costco merchandising and operations. The company also offers diverse career opportunities at our Home and Regional Offices in many other areas, such as Accounting, Buying, Marketing, Journalism, Information Systems, and Human Resources, to name a few. Additionally, Costco is dedicated to recognizing and rewarding employees for their hard work and loyalty. In fact, the majority of our management teams are promoted from within.
Today we have Warehouse Managers and Vice Presidents who were once Stockers and Cashier Assistants or who started in clerical positions for Costco. We believe Costco's future executive officers are currently working in our locations, as well as in our Home and Regional Office.
Warehouses, Depots, and Other Businesses
If you are interested in an hourly position at any of our existing locations (except Puerto Rico - see below), please apply online. If your desired location is open for business but is not listed, you can apply at the location directly. (Currently, other businesses include: Call Center, Costco Wholesale Trading, Packaging Plants, Meat Processing, and Business Delivery.)
If you are interested in employment at one of Costco's new locations that are still under construction, you should be able to apply online approximately 12 weeks prior to opening. Click on the link above, enter the nearest postal zip code to that location, and look for the listing. If the location is not listed, then the site is not yet accepting applications. We appreciate your interest and patience.
Regional and Home Office Jobs
Costco is committed to promoting from within the company. The majority of our current home and regional office team members are homegrown. This means that they started in our warehouses, depots and business centers, learned the business and moved up within the company. This philosophy also ensures promotional opportunities for motivated individuals.
Today, we have accountants, lawyers, buyers, and human resources personnel who began their careers as stockers or cashiers in our locations. We believe that Costco's future officers are currently working in our warehouses, depots, and business centers, as well as in our Home and Regional Offices.
Information Technology Opportunities
Our home office, located in Issaquah, Washington, is also the site of our Information Systems Division.
