    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    For this kind of job (stocking) there is no better place to work than Costco. Wages here exceed what one would expect to get paid for comparative work at any other retailer.

    Cons

    It's strenuous, fast paced work. Not for someone who does not desire a job centered around physical labor.

    Advice to Management

    Be empathetic to what stockers can realistically do in the course of a morning.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very affordable high quality health insurance benefits even for PT employees. Great for working parents who split up child care and need coverage. The key to succeeding at Costco is to work hard, have a good attitude and be nice to people. It's hard work and fasted paced, you have to be down for that to succeed.

    Cons

    At this warehouse you are required to work 5 days per week, even if you are PT at 24 or so hours. This means lots of 4-5 hour shifts rather than fewer 8 hour shifts which is tough for those who commute a long distance to work or have to cover day care.

    Advice to Management

    Allow the PT staff at 24/hours per week or so to work 4/6 hour shifts or 3/8 hour shifts rather than 4 and 5 hour shifts. it gets expensive for those who commute a long distance to work or have to cover day care.
