I enjoy working for Costco Wholesale and have made a decent living.

Front End Cashier (Current Employee)
Modesto, CA

ProsThe wages offered at Costco are some of the highest paid in the industry. Our benefits are awesome and bonuses twice a year are fantastic. Time and one half pay on Sunday are great. Paid holidays throughout the year and personal time off are competitive. We most all feel like a huge family.

ConsFavoritism by managers is a real downfall. Management covers for each other when ethical behavior and compliance issues are raised either by other managers or hourly's. Management does not always follow the guidelines set out in the Employee Agreement Handbook.

Advice to Senior ManagementConsistency from management is lacking. Scheduling according to seniority is a real problem. This causes our camaraderie to be negative. Honesty instead of power could help us all.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Poor management and treatment of the employees by management with absolutely no assistance for resolution from HR.

    I worked at Costco Wholesale


    Pros: Superb benefits and most colleagues are a pleasure to work with. Outside of direct management, the company sets a fun and exciting work environment.… Cons: Poor management in some departments. Some managers severe lack of training and skills in managing successful and positive relationships cause employee discord. Some managers treat… Advice to Senior Management: Strongly encourage thorough management tests before hiring someone for a management position or promoting an employee to a management position. There are indeed great managers… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
