I worked at Costco Wholesale

Pros

For an unskilled job, the wages were very generous, and the available benefits make it a possible to support oneself entirely on the wages given.

Cons

The work is very repetitive and cyclical. It was hard to stay motivated and positive knowing that every day would be exactly like the one before. There is no room for creativity or challenge.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Have some sort of job-rotation set up between the departments. Each departments skill set is easy to grasp, so move employees around more to give them a change to their routine.

    I worked at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Pay is good for industry, benefits are great - even for part-timers. Promote from within and clear-cut guidelines of how to move up.

    Cons

    Crazy schedule - kind of comes with the territory in the retail industry. Training was lacking for my dept.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve training in maintenance dept.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Considering its retail, Costco is way above the bar. I have never worked for a company that held its employees in such high regard. There are plenty of opportunites for those who want them and have a strong work ethic.

    Cons

    Some of the cons can be how political the workplace can be at times, management needs to take notice of the employees that are working hard and show recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take notice of your hard working employees.
