    I have been working at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for a retail job. they offer vac pay and sick pay plus medical, dental and vision. also a bonus starting at $2500 once you top out as a regular employee with no requirements

    Cons

    The only downside I see is that sometimes it can be difficult to move departments

    Current Employee - Service Clerk

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

    Pros

    - Good Pay
    - Great benefits
    - Various departments to work
    - Promotes from within the company
    - One of the last retailers to observe holidays such as New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day etc.

    Cons

    - Retail hours
    - Difficult to obtain full-time
    - Management does not respect seniority for scheduling as outlined by the employee agreement
    - Members can be obnoxious to outright hostile
    - Difficult to transfer from store to store even if a person lives far or moves
    - Hard to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees will be much happier if seniority is applied toward scheduling. It is unfair for newer employees to obtain better schedules then older employees (school schedules and medical reasons aside).
