"The compensation is adequate for the duties performed, however, in this location, the "supervisor" role is simply a means in which to designate accountability for the action of one's team, either positive or negative, with an emphasis on the latter."

"Hard to say. They chronically understaff us now, and as we all know Costco is ALWAYS busy, especially the food court. So really I am doing at least four people's jobs so I am probably a good deal. It is seriously ridiculous how understaffed we are now. And for NO REASON. Costco is one of the top companies! Compared to five years ago, they have cut our staff by more than half! Why Our sales have increased! Only reason I can think is corporate greed. No other reason comes to mind."
