    I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Managers, supervisors and even GM work weekends with you and always give praise for a job well done. Employees are respected. Training, hiring, and working for a company that is well organized.

    Cons

    If you don't want to work weekends, this job isn't for you. Personally, was only hired as seasonal. Would love to be there still.

    Advice to Management

    Please put heaters where greeters and check out staff stand. Is very cold in the winter.

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

    Pros

    Working at Costco is top of the ladder as far as retail jobs are concerned. The pay is much higher and the company's ideologies genuinely respects there employees for the most part. You get major holidays off and lot of benefit options. Most of the positions are easy (though soul sucking). There's lot of opportunity to advance if you choose to stay in retail. There's lot of stability there for people working their way out of retail into whatever career they want to pursue.

    Cons

    It's retail and has most of the soul sucking issues associated with working retail. Also, the vast majority of it's employees have given up whatever career ambition they had to remain at Costco for the rest of their life. So there's a lot of weird family-like cliques and drama that has an unusual Costco flavor to it. Think cult-like to various degrees depending on the store and leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and be willing to give sensible explanations for seemingly retarded tasks. Your 25 years of sell-out experience means nothing to workers who just want to get there head around why some bureaucratic non-sense must be done because of "corporate."
