    I worked at Costco Wholesale full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Best paying company in the retail industry for uneducated people who want have a decent family income. But both spouses will need to work to keep up with inflation Costco does not increase wages according to inflation.

    Cons

    Very poor retirement savings plan for there employees!!! When they retire they better hope they have a back up plan. Such as rrsp's of at least 20 percent of their yearly income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help you employees better plan their retirement. The current plan the company offers is a joke and should be reevaluated to ensure that people will have better options when retiring.
