    I worked at Costco Wholesale full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Stable hours if you were in the merchandise department, either AM or PM everyday. They do promote within. Part time hours for anyone doing something other than Costco.

    Cons

    You'd most likely work weekends quite often. Poor management. Pay is poor for what you do until you reach Assistant Warehouse Manager. If you're good at your job you'll be handed more responsibilities that certain positions should have. Quite often you'll be dependent by other Managers. Quite often you'll see everyone's morale just depletes the longer they stay there.

    Advice to Management

    I think they should listen to experienced employees and understand circumstances change everyday. Factors like; sick calls, accidents, miscommunication, being uninformed, full steel etc.. will impact what we need to do.
