    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time

    Pros

    It's a solid company. They offer great products at great prices and they're good at what they do. I only work part-time and I still get full benefits for my husband and myself.

    Cons

    Standing on concrete for 8 hours straight really wears on your body no matter how good your shoes are. It's tough to get promoted mostly because there aren't that many positions in a warehouse. They need lower level employees the most. I've heard the managers refer to Costco as offering the golden handcuffs because they do pay well. A cashier can be making over $20 an hour with time and a half on sundays. You also get full benefits, sick pay, vacation, and 401K. It's really great for someone who doesn't have whole lot of ambition. However, a lot of people have big dreams but after being as Costco a few years they're making decent money and can't afford to quit even if the job is painfully mind-numbing. Hence, the golden handcuffs.

    Advice to Management

    Offer new things to keep minds stimulated.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits for a retail job. they offer vac pay and sick pay plus medical, dental and vision. also a bonus starting at $2500 once you top out as a regular employee with no requirements

    Cons

    The only downside I see is that sometimes it can be difficult to move departments
