I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Costco was a great place to work while I went to college. Flexible hours, higher than average pay for high school education, better than average environment for high school education.

Cons

too much emphasis on seniority opposed to talent or fit when it comes to work assignments. If someone is a good fit for xyz department, they should work there.

Advice to Management

Keep paying employees well; it's working and sets you apart from retail

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

    Pros

    - I'm positive that not all stores are like this location. It's only been since we received a new GM 6 months ago that the moral of the store plummeted.

    - Beats shoveling dung, if you can handle verbal abuse.

    - Most work colleagues are exceptionally caring and help the work day along.

    Cons

    Management's:
    - Frequent barrage of insults
    - Severe lack of positive reinforcement
    - Vengeful behavior

    You'll sacrifice years of your life to get full-time status.

    Earlier this year wage policies changed to where new hires matched to my hourly wage, which took over a year to reach.

    I'm locked into 1000 hour raise blocks. New policy dictates 800 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Have some decency not to belittle your employees, speaking down to people like they're infants is counterproductive.

    Corporate:

    It's unethical to provide a raise for new hires while not raising the wages of current employees.

    Have to work weekends and nights.
