    Pros

    Gives you a chance to make a little more than most retail jobs. Flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Pay check structure is odd, limited market to sell to depending on Costco traffic of new versus repeat customers, not a career but okay for a college student

    Advice to Management

    Keep the most popular phones in stock, customers constantly asked for phones we didn't have.

    Pros

    Variety of products to sell. Management was great. Work environment was great as well.

    You stand in a kiosk all day with 1-3 other employees. Small work place.

    Advice to Management

    Throw out some fun incentives. It would be nice to have daily incentives from time to time to help motivate

    Do your job, manage your managers.
