    I have been working at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    Best company I have worked for. Start out working night shifts but that worked out for our family life. Can get better schedules the longer you are there. Start out at a great pay, love their healh benefits and great people to work with.

    Cons

    Like all retail it can be a challenge working every weekend, but can adjust and make it work. I have been there for a year and a half and love going to work.

    Pros

    Everything. It's a very pleasant and rewarding place to work. You go to work everyday loving your job and get paid very well to do it .

    Cons

    Very hard to get in . Took me 4 months of applying over and over again just to get a seasonal position. With a 2% turnover you can do everything right and have perfect attendance and still get let go when the season is over .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great , very well managed workplace. They work with your school schedule .

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Good Vacation & Sick Pay. The more you work, the more you earn, thus employees get promoted based on merit and not solely on seniority. Good hourly rate.

    Cons

    Costco is not a 9-5 job unless you are at the corporate offices. If employee is not willing to relocate, not a lot of opportunities.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    GREAT work environment and work-life balance.
    AS big as Costco is, I could still go and walk up to a Director and share some ideas I had. Best part is that they are actually being considered!
    Very strong ethics and values are embedded in the culture.
    They mean it when they say "We are a family."
    Pushing towards Modernization and incorporating a lot of new technologies. So much to learn!
    It depends totally on YOU if you want to stay where you are for decades or if you want to scale up. You have opportunity for both!

    Cons

    No bonus or equity when I got the job.
    Okay pay scale.

    You rock!

    I worked at Costco Wholesale as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Rapidly learned every department. Spent time with managers of all levels to understand how everything works. Important merchandising skills learned.

    Cons

    Sometimes the leadership on the floor seemed disorganized. Some employees were very rude, but I guess that's to be expected anywhere.

    Former Employee - Pharmacy Technician

    I worked at Costco Wholesale part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, ability to learn about pharmacy, usually given a manageable workload, good company morale, closed Sundays

    Cons

    Schedule flexibility depends heavily on pharmacy manager, not a great training program or computer system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For current pharmacy students, would be helpful to consider how to better develop them for the long-term.
