    I saw a 20/20 or 60 Minutes about this guy. He's amazing. Pretty much if something costs $5, he wants to know how they can get the price down to $4.

    Good read.
    sounds like a great company to work for
    not too surprised by the way wall street views his business practices, but i have to congratulate him for providing employees with a decent salary and reasonable health care.

    I knew someone who was a manager. She still couldn't get me in. I'd love to wear a hair net and chill with the sample ladies.

    It is very tough to get in. Basically you need a family member or a friend in the group that is hiring and you have to pass the resumex portions and surveys before they can even pull your profile forward in the hiring path.

    Costco is definitely one of my companies favorite to do business with.

    Costco is definitely one of the better companies to work for out there. Pushing carts nets you a decent wage, which is far more than any of the other grocers/superstores can say.

    Isn't their turnover rate one of the lowest too?
