    Pros

    Great starting salary, especially if you are a student, as they can hire you through student retention program

    Cons

    Managers live in their own little word, where bottom line is first and people are always second. I would not like to make a career in here, for sure.

    I have been working at Costco Wholesale

    Pros

    The pay is above average for this industry. Jim is a great business man, unfortunately he may be leaving. Actually...seem's like he was replaced for some Craig guy I never met. Good stuff.

    Cons

    Starting at Costco can be difficult. Must have a flexible schedule for the hours and likely "know someone" to get in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Simple advice would be to change the way head office is ran. Create an open environment rather than a 9-5 job at a desk. It's why I left for an unpaid internship.
