I have been working at Costco Wholesale as a contractor (less than an year)

Pros

Large multiple cafeterias, nice buildings, CEO's office is visible.

Cons

IT people with no programming skills. They have promoted people from parts buyer to IT analyst.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote from within is good, but have to hire some from the outside. Don't just hire the outside as temps or for projects to do the hardwork.

    Current Employee - Supervisor in Nampa, ID

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great medical and dental benefits. Upward mobility if you are willing to relocate. Pay is great especially for retail.

    Cons

    Hours and days vary a lot which can be hard for some people. Also to start you usually have to start out as part time which makes it difficult to make it a lifetime commitment.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great company to get into and work your way up. If you can work hard, grow and cross train as well as build connections with management you can earn great money and move up fairly quickly. If you dont have a career set and you want to work your way up in the company , you can easily transfer to other locations around the united states or work your way into corporate costco.

    Cons

    There are sometimes alot of micromanaging depending on what department you work in. There is also a fact of seniority and alot of people with seniority usually dont work as hard, and try to boss you around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the micromanagers and supervisors who aren't applying themselves and/or abusing the system to there own benefit. Sitting in the office and playing around on the computer or there cell phones when they should be proactively cleaning, training or cutting pay roll.
