Loss Prevention Agent (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – October 29, 2013
Costco is a family based in philosophy. They pay their employees well above the national rate by way of comparison. Costco believe that employees are the most important assets in the company. The management staff truly believe in leading form the front and does a great job of instilling ownership, and confidence into every employee. Work & life balances are not an issue with this company at all. Health insurance and and holiday benefits are second to none.
7 paid holidays per year, employees bonus every six months, pay raises and cost of living adjustments are constantly updated
Promotions with in the company are very competitive, unless you are able to move out of state to go after the promotion.
bakery life was too difficult and the management was messy. They didn't train me at all and expected me how to work the ovens. I had to close all the time by myself which was ridiculous because that is barely a two person job because there is so much to do. No one tries to help you out and they expect you to do everything at once. They treated me like a child and if I was stupid, but I would still apply to other departments because it is less stressful.
The member are the #1 at Costco. You need to be on time, do not call out for no reason. The benefice pack is really good. Great place to work, always work hard and responsible and you will see the appreciation. You have a strong open door hot line, I believe is fair for us employees if we need some help that we cant resolve with our managers.

All interactions with Costco employees and customers were always pleasant. Each day at work was enjoyable and there was never anyone that seemed like they weren't having a good day. Working in a busy environment helped with customer service skills.
My short time at Costco I enjoyed very much, between the people who worked there and the work I actually did, it was always fun. The other workers are always willing to help you if you don't understand a part of your job, and right away I didn't feel out of place there I felt like a part of the family on day one.
