    Current Employee - Front End Cashier in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Offers great benefits to its employees (Medical, Dental, 401K)
    Promotes from within the company so all of your superiors were once at the bottom
    Good introductory hourly wage (1.5X pay on Sunday)
    Flexible schedules for college students
    Very active work environment
    Potential to move up to corporate
    Good at handling with personal/health issues per employee

    Cons

    Workplace politics is very prevalent
    Scheduling is inconsistent; sometimes get off at 10:30PM
    Some managers will try to micromanage every process on the front end
    Children of corporate employees always have the upper hand regardless of seniority
    Managers are constantly changing the rules about procedures
    A small portion of members feel that since they pay for a membership, the employees are somehow below them

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be fair and be consistent. All employees should be held to the same standards regardless of who their parents are or how long they have been there. Allowing longtime employees to be repeatedly rude to other coworkers and employees sets a bad example for new hires and makes for a bad work environment. Offer classes/seminars for employees to prepare for other positions.
