    Pros

    Best paying company in the retail industry for uneducated people who want have a decent family income. But both spouses will need to work to keep up with inflation Costco does not increase wages according to inflation.

    Cons

    Very poor retirement savings plan for there employees!!! When they retire they better hope they have a back up plan. Such as rrsp's of at least 20 percent of their yearly income.

    Advice to Management

    Help you employees better plan their retirement. The current plan the company offers is a joke and should be reevaluated to ensure that people will have better options when retiring.

  2. Fast pace, hard work, great employer

    Pros

    This is a great place to work, the employees are nice as well as management. It can feel a little overwhelming at times but as long as your try hard and keep working its a breeze working here. The pay is great and the benefit are awesome, making your time spent at this company actually worth it, and not just a check.

    Cons

    A fairly inconsistent schedule makes for a rough work/life balance. Then again I'm a newer employee so maybe once I'm there for a while things will become more steady.
