I don't think Costco workers need tips:
Quote :
"At Costco, we know that paying employees good wages makes good sense for business," Jelinek said in a statement. "We pay a starting hourly wage of $11.50 in all states where we do business, and we are still able to keep our overhead costs low."

"An important reason for the success of Costco’s business model is the attraction and retention of great employees," Jelinek added. "Instead of minimizing wages, we know it's a lot more profitable in the long term to minimize employee turnover and maximize employee productivity, commitment and loyalty. We support efforts to increase the federal minimum wage."

Costco has a reputation for paying its employees above market rate, with the typical worker earning around $45,000 in 2011, according to Fortune. Walmart-owned Sam's Club, in contrast, pays its sales associates an average of $17,486 per year, according to salary information website Glassdoor.com.

Costco also provides health insurance to a significantly larger percentage of its workers than does Walmart, the Harvard Business Review reported in 2006.

A starting $11.50 per hr won'tead to $45k a yr. $45k must be for some upper division. Its not a"typical" worker there. I am sure the one who worked at pumper didn't make more than $20k.

In itself, the membership fee more than pays for itself with the savings you get shopping at Costco. So when the freebies are thrown in, it is a no brainer. This is great deal; thumbs up!

We have a really, really good supermarket called Sprouts (formerly Sunflower Market) that has incredibly good pricing on produce and bulk goods that don't have to be bought in bulk sizes (like Costco). They have significantly better quality and pricing than anywhere else, and I'm certain Costco couldn't beat those prices without me having to buy decades-worth quantities. Wink

About the only thing I could see actually buying from Costco is toilet paper. But, since I only use maybe ~24 rolls of Quilted Northern a year, at a cost of $9 at Walmart, it's not gonna be worthwhile.

Costco is for big families of big people wanting to get bigger. Nothing wrong with that. Smilie
You really have some issue bro.

"Costco is for big families of big people wanting to get bigger. Nothing wrong with that."

Really? Just because Costco doesn't suit your need, you don't have to diss the customers like that. In my local Costco in NJ, most people I see are pretty slim.

It's so sad that based on your experience, you try to generalize on everyone else. In places where the living cost is fairly expensive, Costco offers better deal than most of the supermarkets and supercenter. In my area, the only grocery store that will beat Costco is the Asian markets. Even then, I tend to shop in Costco because of their consistencies and amazing customer service.

So just because something doesn't suit you, don't denigrate other people who actually enjoy that.

According to Forbes, who created the study:

Quote :
Typical employee salary is the 50th percentile of total cash compensation for all full-time workers in the PayScale database that either work for the company listed or for one of their subsidiaries. Total cash compensation includes annual base salary, bonuses, profit sharing, tips, and other forms of cash earnings, but not equity (stock) compensation.
So it seems at least 50% of full-time Costco workers make at least $45,000 in total cash compensation, which is where there 'typical' employee statement comes from. Costco CEO Craig Jelinek, is also ranked 4th from the top in the least CEO pay ratio, at 25+ times to that of a typical worker. Walmart CEO Michael Duke, ranked 2nd from the bottom at 500+ times.

are you telling me cashiers. butchers, samplers, stockmen, cart attendants (car pushers), door greeters,...all made at least $45k? those are the most workers in the store at any giving time. assistants and managers are about 5%. i am not talking those who were working behind the stores like IT, marketing, inventory, ...of course they are not starting at $11.50.

It's funny certain deals become Frontpage as soon as it hits 12 eastern time...Slickdeals has sold out. And this is not a slickdeal, it's a year round offer on other sites.

According to PayScale the data represents median worker compensation across ALL full-time workers. In that sense it's obviously skewed higher by upper management, just like it's also skewed lower by the new hires making $11.50. Taking all those factors, the data represents what the average worker makes across all their employees. The same method was also used to calculate the average worker compensation at the other companies as well. You're probably correct that the most of the workers that come in contact with customers obviously don't make anywhere near $45,000, if they make even make half that.

Incidentally the company ranked at the top for least pay ratio discrepancy last year was Amazon, with a median worker pay of $91,000, which obviously doesn't represent those working in customer service or in their warehouse either. Walmart also ranked at the bottom of the list by far last year with a CEO pay ratio of over 1,000:1, The second worst ratio was Target at 597:1
