    Pros

    Great atmosphere, nice management, team oriented. awesome place to work. the food is always great also. would be better to get hired full time.

    Cons

    5 hour shifts, very hard work, very strict at times. was not worth it to drive to work 5 times a week just to be there for 5 hours. i would rather work 3 days 8 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    keep doing what ever you are doing because obviously it is working. costco is a great company all around to board.

    Pros

    Very affordable high quality health insurance benefits even for PT employees. Great for working parents who split up child care and need coverage. The key to succeeding at Costco is to work hard, have a good attitude and be nice to people. It's hard work and fasted paced, you have to be down for that to succeed.

    Cons

    At this warehouse you are required to work 5 days per week, even if you are PT at 24 or so hours. This means lots of 4-5 hour shifts rather than fewer 8 hour shifts which is tough for those who commute a long distance to work or have to cover day care.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the PT staff at 24/hours per week or so to work 4/6 hour shifts or 3/8 hour shifts rather than 4 and 5 hour shifts. it gets expensive for those who commute a long distance to work or have to cover day care.

    Pros

    This is a good company to work. They have regular pay increases by total hours worked. Good benefits. Fast pace work. The ability to go to other locations if jobs are available. Promote within the company so you know managers have worked within the company.

    Cons

    Hard to get full time if you don't have sonority. Really bad communication between management and the workforce. College degrees don't count as experience.

    Advice to Management

    Some upper management are harder to talk to and seems like if you have an issue or concern they pass you off to other managers. Feels like you are always in a pressure cooker when there is a corporate walk because they want the store to be perfect and if it isn't they take it out on the workers.
