Pros

Being on the floor and interacting with the customers was awesome. There was this instant gratification of helping them find something or something as simple as giving them a box or a smiley face on the receipt when they were walking out the door.

Cons

It was frustrating having a rotating schedule and I would have liked some consistency within that schedule but once you accept that there weren't any major flaws.

Why you left

I knew it was a part time position and I want something more permanent but still within the company because I've grown to know and love the company I'm working for which I don't think a lot of people can say.

How did this career prepare you?

I interned at Costco with the merchandising department and I understand what it's like to rely on an ICS to do your job so I think that helps me to know what a good ICS has to do.

Rate your managers

I think that at Costco you really are treated as though you are a partner with managers as opposed to subordinates, but at the same time you have that mutual respect for the manager and the company and realize that you are their employee and know they're doing this for you and that makes you want to continue to work hard.

Suggestions for the CEO

In my internship, I ran a lot of numbers for merchandising managers and at one point there was an item that was doing really well but was pretty far back in the run and I highlighted this and pointed it out and it ended up going onto an endcap and it did even better!

Advancement opportunities

No, after my internship I knew it was only part time.
