    Relative works at Costco. It is really really hard to get promoted. They pretty much work on the seniority system and he has been beat out a bunch of times by someone who has more time in with the company. He has a degree in business, works incredibly hard, and is really smart. His store management loves him but won't promote him. They throw him a bone every so often to keep him from quitting. After 4 years he will be Seasonal Front of the Store Supervisor or something like that over the holidays. He is excited. He would be a manager making big bucks anywhere else but he sees the Costco Store Manager's wife driving a Bentley and gets pumped up. He'll get there some day.

    Never been in a Costco since 1996. We now have a new store being built in my town. Not sure why they want to come here. No one has any money.
    I can't justify spending money for the membership fee and have no intention of buying huge packages if shit.

    Buying into a brand IS the ripoff. If you buy something based on the brand then you're an idiot. Jewelry is a massive ripoff to start with. They wanted $900 for a simple male wedding band. That's enough to buy .75 ounces of gold or over a kilo of silver.

    I work there. One thing about the hotdog. It's $1.50 with a drink. The original price from the 70s and it's not going up anytime soon. We joke at work that if they do raise the price. We all should find new jobs cause Costco must be going bankrupt.

    By far the best retailer to work for if you work hard. Stating wage is now 13.50 with full benefits including amazingly priced healthcare. Time and half for everyone that works on Sunday. The only downside is it gonna take you five years or more to go from part-time to full-time

    It's not all roses. Having to pay to shop is a big no no. No other company could get away with it. They are a retail store, not wholesale. Certain items are specifically made for them and others can be bought anywhere. They have a poor selection in general. A lot of overpriced items compared to other stores. It's an absolute zoo in there most of the time. I'm aware of the good things already as I shop there.

    Some comments say "Employees friendly & they're happy about getting paid great wages" or "Management personnel are garbage!"? I wonder why? Oh, here's the reason for that:
    Hourly-paid employees are collectively represented by the International Brotherhood of Teamsters!
    Don't believe me? Go ahead & research it, I'll wait for you right here.

    Please Post a video about the Top 5 things you didn't know about Costco and talk about 1.) the annoying and frustrating long lines at the register 2.) Can not find regular everyday supplies 3.) Problems with the membership fees/prices 4.) The one about the branding of items and some vendors don't want to sell products in Costco(Costco gets in trouble with a lot of venders selling unauthorized products). And the biggest problem that people don't know about Costco is that they DO NOT treat employees well.
    I worked for Costco for 28 years before I resigned, I never got promoted, my job title never changed and employee benefits are less than average (also, benefits are 3rd party companies, so you have to deal with separate businesses to use them, you can't work with a Costco department to use the benefits, hope that made sense)
    The list on the GREATNESS of Costco that you have is data from 1996, this list does not reflect the current working conditions of Costco.
    Ohhh, and the CEO (Singeal who I love, he is a great man) resigned in 2010, the new CEO is NOT a Singeal type CEO, maybe that why Costco is not doing well as when Singeal was CEO.

    I buy the rotisserie chicken weekly to feed it to my dog (to mix w/ his kibble). I only eat at the food court if I'm really hungry, Bought a Yamaha very baby grand keyboard their for about a third of their regular cost. Bought a ottoman that converts to a bed for about $50. Kirkland vodka is good, especially considering the price (currently $13). I've had an Executive membership for years and it pays for itself.
    Like most stores peruse the perimeter to find thing the want get rid off, their might be something you like (e.g. keyboard, ottoman).

    Why is $11.50 considered a USA living wage? That's about $ 1,840 monthly yes? rent is $800, food is $600 car payment -plus gas is $500 = $1,900 so How is Costco paying a living wage? O, yeah if I Live in my car in the parking lot, and eat rotisserie chicken every day. Double that wage and you can survive in America but still even at $23 hourly you are not living too well unless you never go out or take vacations.

    The deals they have on the phones is nuts too idk how they can afford to do it, I didn't even know until I started working there.
    But they make their money from memberships not from what they sell really

    How could you forget Costco's most famous attributes? Costco refuses to publish their phone numbers, hours, or addresses. Costco refuses to offer a quick-check aisle. If you want to buy just 12 items, you get to stand behind 17 people who each have two full carts of stuff. Costco has zero customer service. Costco regularly lies to customers about when a favorite items is going to be restocked (which is usually never). Costco's prices are just about the highest among retail food-service chains. Costco's membership fees just keep soaring and soaring northward. And, last but not least - everybody's favorite - Costco refuses to place aisle signs indicating where anything is located. Their official explanation for this admittedly abusive practice is, "We want you to experience the fun of a hunt - like you're at a big flea market." And what if you're in a rush? Go somewhere else!
