What Do You Like About Working There?

Hourly employees are great hard working people.. Show More

What DON'T You Like About Working There?

No communication, no leadership, top down management, authoritarian style management, no room for creativity or innovation. Everyday you work there is the exact same... It's like the movie Groundhog day, but real life. "Member's" pay a yearly fee and therefore expect to be treated like royalty... Show More

The benefits are the only reason I have stayed with Costco as long as I have... Show More

The community that they created was very inclusive and a positive working atmosphere. They were very flexible with scheduling and respected that their employees have lives too.. Show More

I want to feel like I can grow and learn to my fullest potential. The part I didn’t like was that I needed to give ten years of my life before I’d start to make a decent living.

CoWorkers, hours.. Show More
