super stressful place to work, management plays favourites with their staff and there is little to no room for advancement if you are not part of the "inner circle". Most management is unprofessional.

Hi, I put my great efforts into costco however they do not take that into consideration - only the time being there. So for example - employees who have been there for more than 5 years make 60 grand however tell everyone else they only take the bare minimum calls to take as they do not need to work hard to get anywhere... it is all in the time being there. I feel this company should look at the qualifications and work ethics in order to move up into management. Thank you.

This place was a nightmare to work for. They have some of the most unprofessional managers running the place. This place is all favouritism and nepotism. A lot of people that worked there permanent were family or friends of the VP and other head office employees. They got away with “murder.” You will never get ahead in this company.
Pros
Employee auction, decent pay.
Cons
So many issues but it’s costco so they will get away with it

Management isn't that great, I found it really political. Showing up even a minute late looks very bad on you and is used against you even though there are 30 people scanning in at the same time, so you're bound to punch in late here and there. People are very nice that work there, the pay isn't as great as people make it out to be. Rises are baised on hours worked there, not by performance which I disagree with strongly. Don't work too hard as it's not recognised or appreciated.
Pros
big area, lots of employees
Cons
tons of "members", very crowded work space

It was a neutral experience. Can not complain about management or work environment. A typical day is was you would expect for working in customer service and the management usually tried to make the experience enjoyable
Pros
free lunches, good managerial support
Cons
Rude customers

Costco is a very work friendly environment, with many diverse staff members. Work was great until the hours got cut dramatically, and left many short of working hours. I felt like the work ethic of a few other employees were lacking in the department(s) and not much was done in that sense because management was so busy they couldn't be watching over the employees. I feel like I was not appreciated once the season was over, although I did switch departments to help out and picked up hours when employees didn't show up.
Pros
Breaks were high priority, friendly people, many job positions
Cons
unclear instructions, lack of managers present

Usually worked from 3 - 11:30. You are busy all the time which is nice because your day goes by fast. most enjoyable part of the job was that there was usually food in the staff room for people to have. hardest part of the job was having to put up with the lack of logic in some tasks. workplace culture was alright. co-workers are (for the most part) awesome people to work with. Management...could use some work.
Pros
great people to work with, lots of food in staff room
Cons
management, understaffed

Great place to work, co-workers are very nice, extra hours available. It is busy enough that the day passes quickly, supervisors are readily available to help and answer questions.

Costco Wholesale is an amazing company, there's room to grow regardless of what position is initially given. The staff and managers are approachable and are helpful even in the tightest situations. Any work done within the warehouse is meant to be done as a team and not a solo operation. The warehouse also provides variety in daily tasks and routine, because it's customer based the same "stock and buy" routine is there but the amount of people that are dealt with on a daily basis changes so much, that the job feels different every time. Even though Costco is a "Big Box" retailer, it has so much more to offer, the employees are happy to be there and it loses any stereotypes given to it once you understand the company a bit more.
Pros
Great people, Routine, Positive Environment, Flexible
Cons
Some late nights required, Some early mornings required
