    Pros

    Super well ran business, very lucrative pay, happy work environment. The managers were all very nice and helpful for seasonal interns. This is the best Costco I have ever been to. I personally analyze and compare every other Costco and how management differs from my previous work enviroment.

    Cons

    Heard of people being stuck to jobs or positions that were not applicable to there skills.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the order in control and the system regulated on a consistent basis allows for

    Pros

    Friendly and supportive management.

    Excellent compensation.

    Well run business.

    Flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    Some positions have too light of a workload which can lead to stagnation.

    Slight tendency toward favoritism over ability based promotion (May be warehouse dependent).

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to promote based off work and ability rather than personal feelings.

    Keep people busy, don't over schedule slow departments on slow days.
