Management is promoted from within which can be positive but may result in lack of quality personnel. There is very little book training in the areas of Management of People, Communication Skills, Motivational Skills. There are no training opportunities brought in from the outside ie workshops, in service presentations, additional training courses. Morale is very Low. High rate of stress leaves. Physical stress (heavy lifting, cement floor) Mostly positive relationships and friendships between coworkers. Executive Membership provided free of charge

my issue was at the heartland location was management. I had told them I need to work less hours because I had acquired an second job. But they did not care about me so I had left. Outside of that the job was okay.
Pros
free lunch
Cons
management does not care about their staff

Even through COVID, we never closed. Very physically demanding, must be able to stand long hours. Ability to move up however you MUST put in your hours. You’re not gonna be a manager overnight. Pay raises are based off of how many you hours you work, sucks when you start working but only gets better as you go along. If bored in one department, able to transfer departments.
Pros
Most managers work with your life schedule
Cons
Physical Labour, Concrete Floors

No communication, if you were hired when the company was formerly Price Club you have a great job, benefits, profit sharing etc. But don't expect much from Costco
