The driving environment at Costco is one that always seems to get worse every day. The employees will usher you in early and are the only thing that keep you going until they tell you the reality of the situation at hand. Full time is very hard to get (atleast 2 years before full time) the incremental pay increases are extremely slow for part timers(1200+ hours for a small raise) and you will be given the same opportunities as people who are consistently lazy and unwilling. Above all management will seem great at first to you, but you will come to learn that managers will only do things for themselves and you are nothing but another employee. They will ask you to take on positions and jobs to help such a great manager and they could be gone next week for their own sake. The icing on the cake is the nepotism in this company, I have come to accept it in general, but this company pushes it to the max. If you have parents, relatives or a spouse that is higher or more powerful on a lateral scale, then those people connected, even if not suited will get it. Favourites and eventual bad morale boils down to the employees that are most knowledgeable not caring and getting prioritized first, which trickles down to new hires.
Pros
Great coworkers, great pay for a simple job if youre willing to play it long term.
Cons
Nepotism, Egos, Management very ingenuine.

I worked at Costco over the Christmas season when extra employees were needed. I usually worked on the floor, collecting empty boxes, stocking, packing groceries, and general labourer. Good place to work - lots of perks and encouragement from your supervisors,

My typical day was hard work pushing carts, helping members with groceries should they need it. I learned how to work in a fast pace environment.

- must be very attentive and ready to go always - learned many front end positions and tasks, as well as merchandise - managers have many employees to watch over and direct - co-workers are happy for the most part - hardest part of the job is the fast pace and constant flow of members - most enjoyable part is member satisfaction and marketing programs to members
Pros
Salary and benefits
Cons
Always busy, no time to really catch a breath
