I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than an year)

Pros

Medical benefits for part time workers, unheard of at most companies.
Decent starting pay, helpful coworkers.

Cons

Work like a drone the whole shift, can feel like a sweat shop. Concrete floors all day can kill your back by the end of the shift. Micro managing managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If your employees are doing a good job, stop hovering!

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Good Pay
    - Great benefits
    - Various departments to work
    - Promotes from within the company
    - One of the last retailers to observe holidays such as New Years, Easter, Memorial Day, Labor Day etc.

    Cons

    - Retail hours
    - Difficult to obtain full-time
    - Management does not respect seniority for scheduling as outlined by the employee agreement
    - Members can be obnoxious to outright hostile
    - Difficult to transfer from store to store even if a person lives far or moves
    - Hard to get promoted

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees will be much happier if seniority is applied toward scheduling. It is unfair for newer employees to obtain better schedules then older employees (school schedules and medical reasons aside).
