I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than a year)

Pros

working for Costco brand.
Located in issaquah.
Free 4 pounds of turkey meat during christmas time

Cons

senior IT people have no good knowledge on the areas they are working.
work area looks congested as 4 people need to share the same space with out minimum walls
No free food. There are 3 food eating cafterias, but a medium healthy lunch will cost 7$ on average and if you eat outside the same food will cost 9$. No free drinks, a soda will cost 75Cents on average. No enough car parking and you will get headache everyday to find a near place, or you need to park at a mile distance and come to your desk in walking in cold.

Ok forget about food. Even I do not see any increments in salary for good programming and technical skills in my 1.5 year term. Most part is wearhouse culture.

Advice to Management

need to do some work in recognizing talent

    I worked at Costco Wholesale full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Compensates very well for the work performed

    Cons

    Does not value education or work environment, instead opting to cut corners in the name of efficiency and numbers like labor/productivity, members per hour, average basket, and member upgrades.

    Advice to Management

    Company culture starts at the top and works its way down. For blatent disregard of training and osha standards as well as employment laws to be as rampant as it is in the warehouse level as it is, it can only reflect a blind eye from upper managment. Any building operating above $1100/ hour labor needs to be suspect, let along productivity figures at 15-1700/hr.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Large multiple cafeterias, nice buildings, CEO's office is visible.

    Cons

    IT people with no programming skills. They have promoted people from parts buyer to IT analyst.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within is good, but have to hire some from the outside. Don't just hire the outside as temps or for projects to do the hardwork.
