    Solid company to work for but not enough focus on their employees and the way they are treated

    I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great base pay and benefits

    Cons

    Not very employee focused- seemed to have unfair treatment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more transparent review process. Management that is not present in the employee's work day should not conduct the review. Letting a seasonal employee go without notice of whether they are being kept or not (and in the middle of their shift- while they're still on the schedule for the rest of the week) is very unethical.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good wage
    Part time benefits, vacation time, sick time, personal time and 401k
    Easy to advance
    Good schedule flexibility
    Free Costco Membership while you work there
    Have certain holidays off and paid

    Cons

    Schedule black out during holiday weeks ( meaning you cannot get vacation time..etc)
    No work consistency. You could walk in everyday and do a different job then what you were scheduled to do
    Everything is done by seniority
    Bad supervisors and managers
    Late hours and working weekends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to see a better screening process in regards to weeding out poor store management. I have seen many managers just being transferred to a different warehouse for indulging in certain behavior, when they should of been demoted.
