    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company offers great healthcare benefits.

    Cons

    The company offers a 401K plan which is great, but I would prefer a traditional IRA plan for its versatility.

    I worked at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Truly a great company to work for if you have strong work ethics, are willing to start work the minute you clock in, be welcoming and friendly to the customers and work hard and get the job done. Everyone I worked with had the same work ethic and enjoyed the job and being part of the Costco 'family', my co-workers and managers were a great group of people. Great benefits, great management too. Only left because I was getting divorced and had to move away.

    Cons

    Honestly? Non that I can think of.

    Pros

    Driving locally and being able to be home every night with my family and with my years of experience getting a decent wage working for a company with advancement to management being a responsible driver with respect for the equipment that is placed in your care and the co workers that you work with.

    Cons

    Being home at night being on call this is too hard a request to be filled when driving locally. Looking for a permanent position only.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisory position to the drivers
