Pros

Great starting pay, benefits even for part-time employees, and advancement opportunities. Costco really takes care of its employees

Cons

It can be difficult to move up, especially in a busy store, but keep working at it, and you will be rewarded.

Advice to Management

Be sure that when hiring for supervisor and management positions that managers are not already set on who they will be hiring.

    Pros

    The benefits were good as well as the pay even when you start off. Plus you get your free executive membership plus 2% back off of everything you buy there. You also get 3 additional memberships for anybody trying to shop there as well. The raises come automatically based on hours you put in so you never have to worry about asking for one.

    Cons

    All the managers are yes men. They are constantly doing moves over and over that really are pointless. I seen this all the time where when you start making more money, you become a target for them to fire you so they can hire somebody new and start them at the bottom. There is a real big lack of communication between the senior managers to the junior managers to the employees which makes it harder to do your job. If the manager is wrong, they are quick to blame the employee. They make you not want to work there when their actions are wrong and you are the one taking the blame for whatever situation it may be. Also the managers are very lazy, they aren't supposed to do everything but that doesn't mean they are not supposed to do anything.

    Advice to Management

    Step up your communication. Stop being yes men and do whats right when it comes to completing the work instead of just listening and having no brains about it. Start working and stop walking around not doing anything
