Overall Costco is a fantastic employer.

On a corporate level, Costco is fantastic. They have great policies which allow for high wages, benefits, job security and more. They also provide ample opportunity for advancement. The negatives however are that they require 100% availability. Being a retail store with bathing hours and days off I find this to be a very large downfall. This makes it very difficult to have a positive, manageable or predictable work life balance. Booking appointments, making plans in advance, having outside commitments such as colinteering or sports teams is very difficult to accomplish as your schedule is constantly changing and you aren’t aloud to have specific days and times which you are unavailable. A second negative would be the environment expectations and guidelines on a individual warehouse and department level. Though the policies and frameworks are strong. Indépendant stores and managers can create negative environments and expectations. However, with that in mind, overall Costco is an excellent institution who does very well for their employees.
