    Pros

    Best paying company in the retail industry for uneducated people who want have a decent family income. But both spouses will need to work to keep up with inflation Costco does not increase wages according to inflation.

    Cons

    Very poor retirement savings plan for there employees!!! When they retire they better hope they have a back up plan. Such as rrsp's of at least 20 percent of their yearly income.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help you employees better plan their retirement. The current plan the company offers is a joke and should be reevaluated to ensure that people will have better options when retiring.

    Pros

    Great base pay and benefits

    Cons

    Not very employee focused- seemed to have unfair treatment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a more transparent review process. Management that is not present in the employee's work day should not conduct the review. Letting a seasonal employee go without notice of whether they are being kept or not (and in the middle of their shift- while they're still on the schedule for the rest of the week) is very unethical.
