    I have been working at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Great benefits, good pay, the managers treat you very well and there's always something to do as long as you like being busy and if working Merch like me be ready to sweat

    Cons

    Time.. If you have family then I hope you are okay with working either 4 or 5 am till 1 or 2 if you're a regular worker, if you want low management then be ready for 4 am till 4 pm.. Or 10am till 11pm.. If you want to make a nice comfortable wage of $60k, be ready to spend at the most 2 hours a day with your loved one.. Would just like a 8 to 10 hour day starting at 7 or 8.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be afraid to step up and help people.. Don't point and tell, walk through it and show people

    Great place to work during school or build a career. The company takes care of their employees short and long term.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The company offers flexibility in schedule, position, accommodates relocation well. There is a family-like dynamic within each individual warehouse.

    Cons

    For those who have worked at the company in the same position there seems to be a lack of drive to perform at an acceptable level. Because there is no real threat of termination for that reason many of the veteran employees maintain a mediocre level of work performance. There are also many issued between lower level supervisors and management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation, schedule and hours worked should be awarded based on work performance and not based on longevity of employment at the company.

    Pros

    Everything. It's a very pleasant and rewarding place to work. You go to work everyday loving your job and get paid very well to do it .

    Cons

    Very hard to get in . Took me 4 months of applying over and over again just to get a seasonal position. With a 2% turnover you can do everything right and have perfect attendance and still get let go when the season is over .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great , very well managed workplace. They work with your school schedule .

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Good Vacation & Sick Pay. The more you work, the more you earn, thus employees get promoted based on merit and not solely on seniority. Good hourly rate.

    Cons

    Costco is not a 9-5 job unless you are at the corporate offices. If employee is not willing to relocate, not a lot of opportunities.
