    I worked at CDS (Club Demonstration Services) part-time

    Pros

    decent flexibility
    free food
    not bad job while in college (despite 95% of workers are retired women)

    Cons

    Some bosses were overbearing
    Shifts were REALLY dependent on what was going on, sometimes a lot, sometimes hardly any
    Customers at costco are crazy. People getting run over by customers, harassed by them by many things.
    Costco employees look down on you

    Pros

    Great diversity in the workplace and everyone is a really nice. Great pay for the job task at hand and there are always other employees around to help. The management staff is very well organized and accommodating they are very nice and it is rare to have a boss who understands that things do not always go as planned and is prepared to help when things don't go as planned. Also, the shifts aren't very long and you receive two breaks when you work a full shift.

    Cons

    you have to stand for long periods of time but nothing too extreme that average people can't handle. sometimes it is very busy in the store and you can get overwhelmed but no job is perfect.
