Benefits are great with medical, dental, sick pay, bonuses for hourly, and vacation time. Raises are based on hours worked and starting pay is competitive.
Many of the mangers were promoted based on work ethic. However, in many cases, the hardest workers are not necessarily the best candidates for management. More often than not, managers are often demeaning, and use manipulation rather than persuasion to accomplish tasks. Autocratic leadership runs rampant.6

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.
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.1590
