I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

the pay is great, and raises are automatic in accordance with the number of hours you put in. the job is alot of physical work, but it is easy. If you enjoy people this is the place to be.
I love seeing every product that comes in, as a regular shopper there you don't see half of it because some items come &go fast.

Cons

Not having even one weekend a month off is tough, really tough on family life.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Good Pay
    - Great benefits
    - Various departments to work
    - Promotes from within the company
    - One of the last retailers to observe holidays such as New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day etc.

    Cons

    - Retail hours
    - Difficult to obtain full-time
    - Management does not respect seniority for scheduling as outlined by the employee agreement
    - Members can be obnoxious to outright hostile
    - Difficult to transfer from store to store even if a person lives far or moves
    - Hard to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Employees will be much happier if seniority is applied toward scheduling. It is unfair for newer employees to obtain better schedules then older employees (school schedules and medical reasons aside).
