Recent Tells/Reviews and Answers on Costco Wholesale

about
The worst company I have ever worked for, the managers treat the staff on the shop floor like trash and have no idea how to 'manage' their staff, I have been informed this is the 'American way' of running a business and involves openly telling staff off in front of members and shouting out accross the shop floor to other members of staff, this looks very trashy and poor to members. The pay is terrible and you are constantly made to feel like you can be replaced just like that. Victimisation is common as well as nit picking. They are very fanatical about how they want shopping to be packed, we aren't performing brain surgery, but they seem to think so..a bit more praising staff would go along way. Plus i'm sure that i'm not the only one who thinks that managers at the Watford Costco who eat crisps on the shop floor doesn't look proffessional!! And what the hell is the 'University of Costco!!!???' lol

about
The worst company I had ever worked for, the managers treat their staff like trash and have no idea how to 'manage' people. I'm sure eating crisps on the shop floor and chatting on mobiles isn't how they should behave. The supervisors and managers are also fond of telling staff off in front of members and shouting out across the shop floor, apparently this is the 'American way' of running a company!

The pay is poor and you are constantly reminded that you can be replaced just like that, victimisation is also common, as well as nit picking. Of course customer service is important, but they are obsessed with having packers on every till and wanting to know everyone's whereabouts every second, the staff aren't performing brain surgery at the end of the day lets get it into perspective. And who thought up the 'University of Costco' is that a joke?

costco asst. gm's and gm's forget what it was like to be an hourly employee. we get treated like bird dung, for all our hard work, management doesn't care about the incessant verbal harrassment all employees must endure from the members!

costco warehouse management are hypocrites.they think that the new employee agreement does not apply to them! their new no cell phone on employee person is an example. employees have to leave their phones in their lockers, in an emergency you cannot access your phone in time, yet costco management wears their phone on their person openly! they say it is for BUSINESS ONLY! i have personally seen and heard them making dinner reservation,playing video games while on the warehouse floor! i guess they are exempt from company rules and the bylaws!

Work there.

about
I work at costco, they can treat you like trash etc. punish you , nitpick and do what ever they want. just take it, you'll love the money, but you will get screwed over a lot, just dont let it phase you. Work, make money, go home. Thats it, dont involve yourself personally with co workers, dont look for dates etc. Just go there, work and go home.

My advice, been working there about a year.

Cruelty to Seasonal employees

about
My name is Sherry Rowe i was a seasonal help with Costco, The new supervisor Samantha over marketing in the new Augusta Georgia site. made the seasonla employees feel like trash,she would all ways state we can replace employees,and constantly looked in failure in the seasonal employees She would talk to the employees if they werer non human ,would discuss issues with you out in the open in front of customers and other employees. She is in customer service and have a non people person or caring attitude. I feel as a supervisor you should not threaten seasonal employees with i can replace employees.I was one of the seasonal help thatdid a good job,i know this beause Lisa one of the markrting supervisor from Greenville told me there very pleased with me.I feel amantha had a personal problem with me and is prejudice and rascists i,m not upset i just would like someone to look into the treatment if the seasonal employees how Samantha is treating them,everyone need a job but bot be treated unhuman.

Employer- Costco need to invest in machinery,like collecting cart and buggies collecting machine.Some employee got exploited and pick by manager.
Cleanliness - It depends on employee,some employee did not have a license from government to handle the food only in-house.Some meat cutter in Canada especially in British Columbia did not have a goverment license.

about
The comments that I see here are a joke to me. They sound like disgruntled people or newbies that couldn't cut it. It's hard for me to complain about a company that pays 90% of my healthcare, pays me $22/hr, puts 6% of my pay into my 401K every March, and gives me off all major holidays.

If things are so horrible why am I one of the least senior employees in my warehouse with 11 yrs of service. People don't stay at a company that treats them poorly. Costco has the lowest employee turnover in the industry. I'm not a "homer, but I do appreciate what I have especially in an economy like this one.
