Assistant Buyer - Foods Department (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – December 26, 2017
As an employee of Costco for 16+ years, I started working in the warehouse before transferring to the buying office. This allowed me to know what happened in the warehouse when buying for the different departments I handled in buying. It taught me how the warehouse worked (actually opened a new location so there before it was open to public) and then in turn how the whole buying process worked.

Costco is a great company to work for, that's why most of their employee stays with them for as long as they have been. The only cons is that its hard to get a full time job with them if your just starting.

They will get their money's worth out of you in a typical day at work Management definitely needs improvement hardest part of the job is getting everything done on time most enjoyable part of the job is the pay
You will work especially during the holiday season

Costco is not for the faint at heart, you must have a thick skin or the ability to grow one quick. Also, it is heavy work for the most part unless you get Cashier, which isn't always a walk in the door job position. If you’re a people person you will like and enjoy the different amount of personalities the members bring to the table. Costco has always been ahead of the game when it comes to pay and maybe that's why they are still on top of one of the most sought-after jobs that & they are more organized then most. I learned to appreciate the amount of work that goes into making it look the way it does when I go in to shop , however I couldn't see myself there for 5years, and that's usually the first question I ask myself when I get a job

Throughout the 8 months working at Costco, I've learned how to control my attitude and talk to people better. there was no enjoyable part about working at Costco. i felt unappreciated and taken advantage of pertaining to labor.
Supervisor (Current Employee) – Florence, KY – March 21, 2018
Costco is a great first job if you can get in. Once there, if you work extremely well AND can play the politics game, you can advance somewhat quickly. You can mostly expect to work your hours until you reach top level pay for a clerk which is like $23 per hour. This takes approximately 6-7 years of full time, 40 hours per week. You can continue applying for available supervisor positions, but you must ultimately wait in line for your chance to be promoted.
