Costco is a good place to work if you are young & want a decent wage

Wine Sales (Former Employee)

ProsCostco has a very good starting hourly rate in this economic "depression". The 1-1/2 time pay rate for Sundays is awesome! Managers generally will leave you alone if you simply do your job & fly low under the radar...And it is certainly nice to get the free membership cards for yourself & your family.

ConsThe warehouse is freezing cold in the winter and blazing hot in the summer! Managers tend to get nit-picky about certain meaningless items, such as what type of shoes you can wear. The job can be a bit repetitive, and some of the customers can truly be obnoxious...

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more flexible in adjusting work schedules - specifically the 20-hour / 3 day minimum per week rule. Part time means part time, but the company is very strict as to the minimum hours one can work...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Costco treats their workers right, and in turn, creates a great environment for employees, vendors, and customers alike.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale


    Pros: Costco, in general, can be a fantastic place to work for.
