I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than a year)

Pros

a great place to work and the starting pay is much higher than other places. the moral of the warehouse is always high. i love this place.

Cons

the downside of working at costco is that they do not offer overtime. and sometimes working in a seniority based company is bad.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Costco offers the best pay in the retail business in the USA. The benefits are pretty generous. Also, there is stock purchase plan and the 401-k contributions.

    Cons

    Since Jim Senegal stepped down from the CEO position, the culture of company has changed dramatically. Expectations are a lot higher which adds more stress to the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    take time to communicate with employees to learn about them more

    Pros

    Benefits
    You can find hours if you really want to.
    The harder you work, the more relaxing home seems.

    Cons

    Supervisors and Management have no idea how to empower their employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Success isn't completely number based, it's employee based also.
    Member service begins with properly educating your employee's so they're self-motivated to get the job done.
    Seniority isn't the end-all-be-all, typically the most senior people are the laziest.
