Does Costco Wholesale offer massages?

Pros

Good pay and free food all day once a week. Met some good people, and good employees.

Cons

Scheduling are not very flexible, and didn't get my schedule in any "Ahead of time" as it was supposed to be. Do not recommend for college students and employees who have a 2nd job. Job is very draining.. and I didn't feel like I belonged.

Advice to Management

Respect the employee's time by creating the schedule atleast a week ahead, not during the week. I understand the demand and pressure of the job, but treat all employees equally, do not be any more lenient to older employees who have been working there for a while. (e.g letting them chat, use phones etc)

Does Costco Wholesale offer dental insurance?

Pros

In the many years working here I have been pleased as an employee, decent pay, good medical, dental, vision , life insurance and 401K benefits.

Cons

Recently the work environment has changed, has been overwhelming, and stressful. The pressure for us to perform has increased and it feels as though upper management has loss sight of the importance of keeping employees satisfied. I have seen the changes in the recent years and this past year during the pandemic I did not feel valued as an employee.

Does Costco Wholesale have a pension plan?

Pros

Great pay, great benefits, good pension

Cons

Nit-picky at times, slackers get away with a lot while others pick up the slack.

Advice to Management

Hire better people, and don't keep employees who don't perform beyond their probation period. Sometimes you're polishing the silver while the house is burning. Fix the culture that you say is what makes Costco a great place to work. Pitting employees against each other to rat each other out is not good culture.

Great pay, great benefits, good pension

Does Costco Wholesale offer life insurance?

Pros

Great pay, benefits are awesome ($50/mo for great insurance for myself only. $175/year toward optical, deductible of $500 a year. 401k matching and yearly bonus. As an hourly you can take off an additional month of unpaid time off during your locations off season (Jan-March where I'm at). You can get promoted and have great pay if you've been there for a long time or move up in management.

Cons

It's retail, so scheduling is all over the place. Management styles vary WILDLY across locations and managers. They promote a lot of different types of personalities and some of them can be abusive monsters. It all depends on what location you work at and that warehouses culture. Being a manager there is also all over the place: Wildly changing and sometimes long hours, unreasonable expectations, unstable employees/members screaming at you.

Advice to Management

Limit hours worked by management to avoid burnout. The corporation needs to be more aware and passionate about maintaining healthy work atmospheres. Open door and whistle blower programs feel like a joke in some/many locations.
