Great stepping stone
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee), Tacoma, WAMay 20, 2015
Pros: great benifits, diverse possitions
Cons: constant changes in the scheduling
Costco was a great experience for me. It was demanding and fast paced, allowed me to try many different positions within the same warehouse, and beef up my work experience. I learned how the warehouse works, and all the parts to maintaining a successful company. The employees were very diverse, and constantly changing. The hardest part of the job was the physical demands of stocking, and retrieving carts in the elements.
The most enjoyable part of working at Costco was meeting so many members of the community and building lasting relationships with them, and the incredible managers overseeing day to day operations.

Great place to work. I loved the people and getting to interact with everyone there.
Sales Associate/Freight (Former Employee), Nampa, IdMay 20, 2015
Pros: Great benefits and great pay
Cons: short shifts
I loved working for Costco. It was a job that challenged me to learn more about the products that were available and getting to share what I learned with the other members. I was able to learn how to schedule people in the department and get involved with the behind the scenes operation. I was able to use my organizational skills and organize the department I was working in and also the freight we received.

Exceptionally high standards and intense work environment coupled with exceptional starting wage and room for advancement
Stocker/Sales Associate (Current Employee), Plano, TXMay 18, 2015
Pros: Payed holidays, great benefits, 401k plan, stock that doesn't diminish, high job security, good breaks, high expectations
Cons: Very intense work, sometimes disorganized supervising
An average day at work for me begins at 4:15 or 5:15 am when I gather a shopping cart and a flat bed to store my trash as I stock, and then I get right to it. The whole focus of my position is detail and speed, meaning that more important than getting every bit of product stocked is ensuring that every item is facing handsomely forward, flush with the its pallet and with its identicals, that every pallet is perfectly in line with all the others in an aisle, that every sign is correct and centered, that every product has a display if it needs one, and finally that we finish everything completely by 10 o'clock when the doors open for members to shop. From this job, I've come away with an extreme level of urgency, as well as an attention to detail that I scarce could comprehend prior. I contribute this largely to the firm but encouraging management staff that has so clearly outlined the scope of my duties and to what degree they should be performed. As for my co-workers, I'd say that level of quality is very hit-and-miss. Most of them hate their jobs because they are required to work so hard, but most of them even still aren't even working nearly as hard as I do in the first place and take every chance to complain about how management is terrible because...they tell them to do their jobs the right way...and that apparently irritates them. I could definitely do without that negativity, but they stay for the wages, not a fun work experience. That being said, pairing a functional personal life with a functional work life is astoundingly difficult because I expend extreme quantities – more... of energy while at work. In fact, this unbelievable caloric bombardment on my body has left me desiring a position somewhere that will sacrifice physical exertion in lieu of a mental challenge. That being said, I have always cherished the way in which Costco conducts their business. They treat employees as fairly as a company really can, and provide a lower priced product than almost any other company in their field, all the while presenting to their member base a level of customer service that constantly exceeds their expectations. Altogether, Costco is a wonderful company to work for, and working there has been a privilege. – less

Cons: I didn't get to stay long enough
I was hired on as a Seasonal worker at Costco. I worked every shift over the holiday season. The management was a dream to work for. I was treated with ultimate respect.

A different learning expirence
Assistant cashier and Cashier (Former Employee), Van Nuys, CAMay 14, 2015
Pros: Great food and co-workers
Cons: Rude customers
A typical day involves sorting costumers items into boxes and maintain a clean working area. I learned that not all customers are the same and that I must be efficient with my time. The management team was supportive of my working skill when working busy hours. The co-workers were extremely friendly and helpful. The hardest part of my job was dealing with rude costumers. The most enjoyable part of my job were the co-workers and unique costumers.

Costco is great place to work at,
They have good benefit, they treat members and employees real good.
You get to see the CEO ones or twice a year. They give employees free membership and 3 other family members.

Great but not the Best
Seasonal Bakery Team Member (Former Employee), King of Prussia, PAMay 14, 2015
Pros: Good staff and environment.
Cons: Some management issues, average pay
Wegmans overall was a very good company. Most of the employees and managers were helpful and friendly, while they had a few bad or less friendly ones. Overall, the management team was outstanding. The pay was above average but maybe could have been a bit more considering the amount of work a Night Manager/Service Team Leader had to do. The hardest part of the job was training and developing a team of thirty or so employees to hopefully one day move up in the company. My favorite part of the job was that everyday I was able to do or learn something new, and the daily interactions with the friendly staff they had hired.

Great company to work in short-term and probably long-term
Front End Cashier (Former Employee), West Des Moines, IAMay 14, 2015
Pros: Great environment, good benefits
Cons: Not ideal advancement opportunities
Working at Costco was fairly rewarding. Compensation was fairly high, considering the work was very easy and demanded little. Benefits are fairly high as well, even for college students, considering the work done. Management was great at my location, though other locations that I have visited have seemed less than ideal. Customers were usually easy to manage and please. Not a whole lot of negatives working here, unless you are looking for quick advancements.
