      Pros

      By far the best company I have worked for, not only is the pay good but the company truly cares about the employees. Managers and other staff make sure that everybody has a helping hand when needed and makes it notable that the employees are appreciated and not over worked.

      Cons

      It can get quite busy at times, but realistically, it's Costco. You know it's going to be busy

      Pros

      Good Benefits, some opportunities to grow.

      Cons

      Poor Management, they call you on you days off to come in. They cut hrs and staff on busiest days and you have to do the work of 2 or 3 people. Have to work weekends and miss all family events

      Great company and good culture

      Pros

      Compensation and benefits are far better than most retail positions. Great upward mobility, most managers actually care about the employees. Supervisors are there to step in when customers are difficult. There are many positions in the warehouse you can move into, including photo lab, tire center and morning or nighter stocker depending on your inclination. Time off is easily requested if not always granted.

      Cons

      The downsides were pretty minor for me. On your feet all day, often on concrete floors (cashiers do get rubber mats that help with that). Weekends off can be hard to get sometimes. Only one bad manager that made scheduling a nightmare in my last year.
