I worked at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Costco pays well and also provides a variety of schedules to work. They also allow students to go on student retention and still keep their seniority. On Sundays you get paid time and a half and after 90 days you get holiday pay.

Cons

It is a retail job so expect to work weekends. Also in recent years the company has become alot less family friendly,extending the weekend hours ect. Costco preaches that there is tons of opportunity for career advancement but it really depends on the area of the country you work in. The Pacific NW is stagnant.

Advice to Management

I think that corporate needs to make sure that the promises they make to employees are actually carried out at the warehouse level.

    Pros

    The wages offered at Costco are some of the highest paid in the industry. Our benefits are awesome and bonuses twice a year are fantastic. Time and one half pay on Sunday are great. Paid holidays throughout the year and personal time off are competitive. We most all feel like a huge family.

    Cons

    Favoritism by managers is a real downfall. Management covers for each other when ethical behavior and compliance issues are raised either by other managers or hourly's. Management does not always follow the guidelines set out in the Employee Agreement Handbook.

    Advice to Management

    Consistency from management is lacking. Scheduling according to seniority is a real problem. This causes our camaraderie to be negative. Honesty instead of power could help us all.

    Pros

    Great Work Life Balance, Ethical Company Culture, Growing Company, Excellent Employee Benefits, Good Executive Leadership, Constantly trying new things, Entrepreneurial Atmosphere

    Cons

    IT salaries not competitive. While the business can make decisions quickly, IT division can over analyze and not make up their mind on direction to go.

    Advice to Management

    Costco should strongly consider hiring an individual with executive experience with modernizing an IT department to mentor current IT executives.
