Excellent use of entrepreneurial skills - manage your own business. Hard work long hours. Paid exceedingly well. Hard to achieve work life balance.

I consider Costco Wholesale to be the best employer in Canada. They offered me training for computers as well as Management courses.If you are willing to put in the work and hours needed you will be rewarded. Best pay, best benefits.
Pros
Best Pay, Best Benefits, fun work enviroment
Cons
None

Management talks the talk, a lot... but that's all.Lots of policies in place, they read nice but a rarely enforced.Have a concern? Watch your back, the boot-lickers are near, and most think of themselves as 'he without sin".Management promotes Igors (lot's of "yes master" types - see quisling)If you come to work to play and make friends, apply now. If you want to work and support the customers well and expect management to have your back, do not work for Costco.
Pros
Friendly atmosphere, lots of fun
Cons
Don't fight for the customer, you'll upset the quislings.

Everyone always seems up tight.. some nice people, management not so much. Not flexible with hours. Hard to get full time, probably takes 3-5 years at earliest..
