Approves of CEO

I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Movement around departments, benefits for part-time employees, flexible schedule, given good amount of time for breaks, and co-workers are friendly.

Cons

Full time positions nearly impossible to get, management is incompetent, supervisors tend to abuse their power, and working at registers means you are working under a magnifying glass.

Advice to Management

Promote managers who don't abuse their power.

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

    Pros

    The employee benefits were amazing, even for a part time employee. The management were always friendly, and willing to assist in any way possible.

    Cons

    Sometimes it can be difficult to move departments or move up within your department. Other than that I can't complain.

    Advice to Management

    Give equal opportunities to all departments.
