Want to avoid ticking off a Costco employee? Don't assume they're looking for a better job.
In a piece published in Refinery 29, former Costco employee Meghan DeMaria wrote that she loved working at the store and resented the implication that her job was "less important than any other job."
In a Reddit AMA, one anonymous Costco employee said that the store's "pay scale is awesome for the industry."
"Benefits are good, vacation is awesome after a few years, and they have a lot of employee-care type stuff," the employee wrote. "We have a lot of 15-25 year employees at my store."
The result is a large number of employees who stick around for the long haul.
"Even as a 10-year employee, I'm in the middle of the pack when it comes to average seniority," the anonymous employee wrote. "We made a name tag for an old-timer employee that said Employee since 1887. Took him a while to catch it."
