    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Flexible hours. Raises, sick time, and vacation time for part time employees.

    Cons

    Management is hit or miss. Can be miserable to work under in some buildings. Can be an amazing support system in others.

    Pros

    Awesome staff and management. The benefits are great if your still in college and working part-time. Portland Oregon location is super busy, #1 in the nation which makes the day go by fast and gives people that want to a chance to step up to cashier. Great pay. There's not a lot of places you're going to work at and not dread going to work. I loved every day I worked at costco. Such great people and their all so friendly.

    Cons

    Not a lot of movement if your trying to move into management fast. Too many people that have been there from high school that are just now wanting to step up. Seniority plays a huge factor. The seasonal hire's are can bring really hurt production if there's not enough of them and put a big stain on the rest of the staff.

    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.
