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

    Pros

    Easy but tedious work environment. Valued company, and a sure resume booster. Pays well for not requiring an education.

    Cons

    Promotions through years served, not hard work. Nepotism and favoritism are glaringly obvious. Managers worked for a very long time to reach where they are and do not hold back their frustrations toward the entry level employees. Post high school education does not matter to the company. Warehouse work environment varies. If someone in management does not like you, your career path will be hindered.

    Advice to Management

    Value the educational background of your employees and revamp your college retention program

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

    Pros

    Very employee friendly. Varied work assignments when needed and cross training, makes it a place that can move forward without a hitch because everyone knows whats expected in any department their asked to fill in at.

    Cons

    The only con in working in the distribution center is that because of the warehouse doors constantly being open and closed to accommodate loading and offloading, it is not cost effective and almost impossible to control the temperature. So if its hot out its hot inside and visa versa for cold weather.

    Advice to Management

    try to come up with a way to warm up the DC's in the winter months.
