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 Management

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.

    Pros

    Great people, good pay, awesome benefits!

    Cons

    The Costco team is great, but the members aren't. If you can't handle people, it's not for you.

    Advice to Management

    Costco has an open door policy. You can go to any manager at any time. They're understanding and helpful.

    Costco sucks, they treat employees like crap and there are no opportunities at all for fulltime work

    Pros

    $11 an hour to start, good benefits

    Cons

    You're never doing the right thing, management change their minds all the time, one day they say one thing, next day they say another, you're never good enough, even if you work your ass off they don't care, you're not getting a promotion because everything is based on seniority and your performance only gets you in trouble but never benefits you. they're very abusive when it comes to being outside pushing carts, they don't care if your sick, they'll still send you out if it's raining/thundering/snowing or over 100 degrees and keep you out there your whole shift every friggin day. if you're looking for a full-time job this is not the place to work for you, expect to get from 24-32 hours every week, Costco's infested of all creeps that won't retire cuz they wanna keep all their benefits so pretty much someone has to die to leave a full time position available and when theres one there are already like 10 guys with more seniority than u waiting for it.

    Advice to Management

    Take some time to give positive feedback to your employees and on promotions not only make your decisions on whos been working the longest but who can do the job better and whos worked the hardest too
