I always buy a bunch of those fruit smoothies at the food court because they're goddamn delicious and dirt cheap

I haven't had a Costco membership in like 5 years but I still swing by for the smoothies and pizza on the way to BJ's, Costco has lovely oranges while bjs has oranges the size of grapefruits so I go there instead

Like good money also.
I think I heard most employees who are there like 5 years are making like at least mid-50k plus benefits.

They have essentially zero employee theft gee I wonder why...

Agreed. I work ten minutes from a Costco, get out of work at 8 PM, get there by 8:10, and I have the whole store to myself for a blissful 20 minutes before they close at 8:30.

Either that, or be the first person in when they open on weekends. If I can't go then, I don't go. The lines and crowds are too terrible any other times.
Yep, and they don't even kick you out at 830 just closing the doors so you have more time than that.

Went today because I needed to replace a car battery. Going 15 minutes before they opened didn't help much today sadly

Had to wait in the tire center for like 20 minutes to buy a new car battery, and then they couldn't fully refund my old one so I had to go wait into Merchandise Return which had another 30 minute line, and then the store was packed by the time I was done. At least checkout was almost empty so I got out fast.

Protip: bring your own jars and walk out with massive amounts of hotdog fixings. They charge you for the 'dog, not the fixings.

They pay me 13 bucks an hour to push carts around a parking lot and put stuff in boxes for people. That's pretty neat.

Payin me close to 24 to work a register. I also feel that this is neat.

The ceo kept on getting pressure from his execs to raise the price of hotdogs but he keeps saying "no, gently caress you"

He also fixes their maximum makrup at 15%

So put your faith

If a new costco opens near you, go the night before. Starting 6pm there is free food and stuff. Food court fare + they bring in caterers who cook up all sorts of Costco products.
All the bigwigs go if you fancy meeting Craig Jelanik (sp) or sometimes Jim Sinegal. It's open to members (no, they don't check for memberships).

How often do they clean the diced onion dispensers for Hot dogs? Not that any answer you give me will prevent me from shoving them in my mouth, but I'm curious.

The one I go to has beef chili in a cup so I guess you could buy the hot dog and dip it in the cup chili

one of the best things at costco at least the last time i went was this korean pork jerky they had in the snack section near checkout

That Korean BBQ pork jerky was good but it also gave me and the GF turbofarts for the rest of the night so I would not recommend. The Steak Strips jerky though is so good it's a crime.

There's weird regional variations in the cosrco food courts. Dor 8nstance the ones in jersey sell burgers amd fries for some reason.

Meanwhile other places sell gelato

Ive seen italian sausage and also brata sold alongside the hot dogs in various regions. Not both at the same place though

that sounds pretty nice. ours is just the boring standard(?) menu. Probably depends on if there's some local factory that can supply them close by?

Never had the caesar salad or turkey wrap; the chicken bake kind of sucks in the past several years, but hot dog/pizza is still solid (but mostly bang for the buck, its not otherwise good)

I remember costco selling giant pretzels in the early 90s but maybe that was price club or something. I miss those.
