A good employer that values their employees. Opportunities for advancement and several options of benefit plans. Advancement is fair and based on seniority.

Great place to work if you have been there for 20+ years. Management is constantly changing, they often play favorites and it can be difficult to advance. Can be a fun workplace, but they often change the rules depending on the warehouse manager.

During my employment at Costco Wholesale, I found that my coworkers were very dependable and easy to get along with. The management team was always willing and able to assist in tasks that required more than one person. They were also generally friendly, and if one were to put in 110% every day, the individual would be rewarded accordingly. Overall this was quite a lovely work experience, and I honestly would not mind working for this company again in the future.
Pros
Lots of opportunity for advancement, affordable wages
Cons
Indoors

A typical day at work consisted of making the store presentable to customers when the entered. This meant we had a limited time to complete our task. From this job I learned diligence and discipline and how to present a store to customers. The most difficult part of the job was working under a deadline constantly and dealing with heavy products.

Working Working at Costco was phenomenal. When I worked there the minimum wage was only $10/h but they started me at $12.75/h After 3 months you get full health benefits as well. The management is great and you get to work with great people.
Pros
good benefits after 3 months, high starting wage

none

They are a good employer but hard to make an impression when no one follows company rules. Make you wear steel toed boots when half the staff walks around in sneakers.
Pros
Nothing.
Cons
Poor management, hard to gain full time.

demonstration of different products. I learned to try the different products of foods and distinguish strategies for demonstration. I helped my co workers and shared ideas to made a better place of work. Hardest part of my job when I had littler work. The most enjoyable part of the job was I tried the costumer.

Good overall experience learning team work from the "buddy system"(being placed with a different staff member each day). It was a very safe work environment, plenty of safety training, and safety conscious management. The hardest part of the job was the waiting time between training to move forward with more job responsibilities.Such as going from only packing groceries to training for front door greeter, and assisting at self check out tills took 3 months. I enjoyed the friendly staff I worked with, and any issues were dealt with respectfully and immediately.
Pros
friendly and fun people to work with
Cons
shifts were subject to change frequently
