        I have been working at Costco Wholesale part-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Money, breaks and home time.

        Cons

        Kiss your social life and weekends goodbye. If your dept manager is a bully...snr management will defend them, not you. They frown upon anyone who rocks the boat and favor those who are willing to kiss butt. If you're not in the stupid little cliques, you don't matter. Being an honest, punctual and reliable hard worker doesn't get you anywhere.

        Advice to Management

        Pull your heads out of your rectums and look at who REALLY does the work in your warehouses. It's usually the quiet ones who keep their heads down and do what they gotta do tk get by and support their families. Some of your dept managers are bullies.
