Who doesn't love Costco? From the delicious food court pizza and free samples to the steep discounts on bulk goods, Costco is basically a theme park for adults.

Making sure you walk out those sliding doors with a smile on your face requires a whole lot of behind-the-scenes work from the staff. And overall, Costco employees are pretty happy. The chain was named one of the best places to work by Glassdoor in 2019, 2017, and as Business Insider reports, employees love the pay, benefits, and job security that working for the bulk retailer affords.

But, like any job, working at Costco isn't all sunshine and daisies, and according to one long-term employee on Reddit, certain positions are much harder than others. And one in particular takes the cake.

This Reddit user, who claimed to have held positions ranging from bakery assistant to front end supervisor, said that the worst job was easily the entrance door service member. Honestly, we would have guessed stocking shelves!

"It's boring," the employee explained. "Trying to stand in one place hurts more than moving around. You have to acknowledge every member that comes in."
