    Pros

    There is not another company that will come close to how well you are compensated. If you compare any positions pay alone to another competitors it is at least double if not tripled.Then you add in great health care, bonuses, sick time, paid holiday, and vacation time.

    Cons

    Employee's become content and comfortable and stop giving 100% which means others have to pick up their slack. It is very easy to start to feel disconnected from your co-workers instead of feeling as part of a team due to lack of quality leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leadership needs to have proper training in areas such as communication, time management, self control of emotions, and what it means to be a leader. Their are to many people in leadership positions just because they have seniority with the company and then no proper training and it becomes a toxic enviroment.

    Pros

    They lure you in with good pay and benefits compared to other retailers
    There is room for advancement if you're willing to move
    The company still has growth potential and will open new warehouses

    Cons

    No one with seniority does any work as it is near impossible to get fired
    Products were fresh and high quality when I started. Membership prices increased and quality began dropping. Food made in-house now came pre-made and frozen. More management positions were added that were superfluous. People became resentful at being micromanaged at all times. Gossip and disrespect among the workers is rampant. The standards for quality are in name only and it's all about speed and profit. Safety and sanitation go right out the window as they would at a Wal-Mart but they still act superior to other stores. Some jobs are easy and others backbreaking, but all receive the same pay leading to more animosity. The store manager is rotated every 3 years so they never become competent. The managers just swap positions constantly and claim there is room for everyone to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand what goes on in your warehouse, it's not the idyllic propaganda that the corporate office puts out...seems like Jim didn't sacrifice quality like today's leadership does.
