Negative

Supervisor (Former Employee)

ProsGreat benefits, 30% discount, time off is reasonably easy to get. Good job experience but do not plan on making a career, get the experience & move on.

ConsManagement does not back you up, they will write you up for just about anything if they do not like you. Preferable treatment given to some members of the team. They offer no bonus to supervisors or dept. heads - The only one getting the bonus is the GM & they sit in the office 95% of the time.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    An exercise in futility and frustration. RUN AWAY!

    Department Head (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Cost Plus


    Pros: The discount is great. I'm able to furnish a lot of my home for really cheap. Many of the products are very well-made or tasty.… Cons: They want you to do an amazing amount of work for little to no compensation. They pay lower than practically any comparable retailer like Whole… Advice to Senior Management: Stop promoting incompetent people to management positions. Also, get real about pay. Do you really think that you're going to get a dedicated, high-achieving worker… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
