    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Just started working for Costco. The Team is wonderful very nice. If you have any questions just ask. Don't work for Costco if you don't want to be in a team of hard working people. When your done with your shift the manager will thank you for doing a great job.

    Cons

    Don't have any everything so far has been great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thank you for giving me a chance working at Costco. I'm looking forward for many years being at Costco.

    Current Employee - Area Manager in Goleta, CA

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay is great. Advancement potential is very high. Very physical. I get paid to work out. Free demo samples take care of lunch.

    Cons

    Physically VERY demanding. Not for the weak. Need great shoes. Concrete flooring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training programs need to be implemented.
    Managers should be more professional. People promoted out of necessity and not people who are qualified for the position leads to morale issues and dissention.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Costco is a very good company to work at. Starting salary is competitive with good benefits both for part-time and full-time employees. Very flexible schedule for students. Costco is the only company I know that values spending holidays with families; the company maintains to close on important holidays.

    Cons

    Management in Richmond, CA location is horrible. There is no room for improvement and advancement regardless of your good standing and hard work. Managers only promote people by favoritism. If they don't like you, then you will never be noticed despite your good work. I have been at other Costco warehouse where management actually do value employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should look into Richmond, CA location specifically. Managers are promoting favorites instead of those with long, good standing records. Lots of management complaints that are being unheard. A lot of employees are unhappy esp with current management.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. friendly coworkers and management

    Cons

    I believe, sometimes, employee's were advanced to higher positions because of nepotism by management. Internal politics result in bad employee moral.

    I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hours, Benefits, PTO, Holidays, Schedule Change abilities

    Cons

    I worked here throughout college and though it was a GREAT job for that time of my life it def came with its issues. Management seems to latch on to personal feelings towards employees and take personal to you school life. Would have been much more enjoyable if they appreciated the time I gave instead of asking for my to be full time.

    Management does not like students that do not want to commit their life to costco, politics, members can be rude

    Pros

    A great company to work for that truly has their business model and goal solidified. They know how to do what they do better than anyone else and they drive towards being better every day. They take care of their employees and offer a lot of opportunities around the company that they want you to explore.

    Cons

    Some of the employees are a little stale meaning they have been there a long time, doing the same thing and in turn can be cranky some of the time. Change is good, they need to embrace that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create more opportunities within a position.

    I worked at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    The food court in the store was nice. The people are fun to work with and Costco wants to see you develop.

    Cons

    A lot of politics, especially when you move up. Very standardized so not much room for creative thinking, and could only clock in/out within 3 minutes of starting/closing time.
