    I have been working at Costco Wholesale full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many checks and balances to assure correctness of order. Great benefits and support. Hours are great for a retail company.

    Cons

    Members feel entitled and are programmed to ask for gifts if service is not perfect. Long term employees worry to much about seniority at the expense of the business.
