I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 3 years)Pros
Good wage & some good benefits compared to similar jobs elsewhere.
Good bonus (once you manage to reach top rate)Cons
Low staff morale.
Lack of training.
When I first came to costco (nearly 4 years ago now) The company was about putting customers first, keeping staff happy and making a profit (it is a business after all)
But since the new CEO took over I have noticed a change that is making the job become unbearable. It is all about profit, profit, PROFIT.
Staff do not matter whatsoever.
I now see managers becoming bullies, no matter how hard you work it's never good enough.You are made to feel worthless and sometimes stupid.
Incompetent people being made supervisors (but if you're pretty it doesn't matter)
Managers that are getting away with murder, but there are no consequences for them.
High levels of favouritism.
I now feel sorry for people on top rate, as they must wake up everyday thinking will I be moved today.
I once aimed to become a supervisor, but I was not willing to be the "fall guy" or to cover peoples backs when they have made mistakes. I was also not willing to flirt or do more to get ahead (as a lot of people have)
I see people working so hard for costco, going above and beyond, but they don't even get a thank you. But the moment you make a slight mistake, they are all over you.
In my department now, 80% of people want to leave. But it is hard when no job at that skill level will pay the same rate.
I used to go in looking forward to the working day, now on my days off I dread going in. And once I'm there I can't wait to leave.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Actually listen to your staff.
Respect your staff.
Reward people for hard work (the employee off the month board is just full of managers favourites)
Train your staff (including supervisors)
I think you need to focus on UK stores as majority of negative comments are from here. I have heard the current new stores are not doing as well as predicted and I am not at all surprised.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
