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

    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.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, even for part time employees. Treated like you are a valued employee. Great potential to move up if you so desire. Many different jobs available. Great as a part time job. Pay starts out much higher than minimum wage. Steady raises, 401K, great health benefits at an extremely affordable cost. Dental insurance actually pays for a lot, unlike the dental at my full time job. Family oriented, compassionate, flexible schedule. Persons with disabilities are given a chance to work, beginning with a seasonal job. I have worked here part time for 10 years now. Most members are great. It's like a family.

    Cons

    Must be able to work almost all weekends. Some supervisors and mangers are lazy and the power has gone to their head, but not most of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review supervisors and managers on a regular basis. Maybe have the employees do a rating of them. The employees will have a more accurate view of them as they work for them on a regular basis. Things run differently when the store manager is not there to watch and l isten to what is going on.

    Poor management. Education is not needed to be promoted. A lot of favoritism. If you can handle that, you will be fine.

    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.
