Neither, both suck, one just doesn't suck as bad as the other.

So, the CEO of Walmart is NOT being compensated based on performance, clearly. Or else the CEO of Costco is being robbed, with the mere pittance he gets paid.

Dodge the issue...

$15.60 per hour for a cashier? That's BS.

Neither.

We wish you great good luck Shintao Mushroom as you continue to ponder your next career move. If you have what it takes to work at Costco I say go for it!

Don't shop either one, too much hassle.

All contards are pussies. NONE are men.

 

You cannot have manly conversations with panzies, so the best thing is to call their mothers whores. :)

 

 

This thread matters in what way?

It gets you to show your true colors: Blue and White (The color of the Dodgers Uniform).

Why would you park in bumfuck, tons of registers, but only 1/3 manned to save 50 frikken cents.

 

Seriously, what idiot would do that.

Many folks do for good reason. I used both sams AND costco when I ran an indy pizza joint. They would have my order collected already and load it in my truck for me. The folks at Costco would make desserts for me, just to sell me the ingredients.

 

But that is not the issue. There is a contrast in the business models. One is scortched earth and the other is - let us say, much closer to the sort of capitalism that we on the left approve of: self regulated toward good corporate citizenship.

 

But then, you KNOW that opening THAT conversatiomn is the intention of the OP, and you try to deflect away rather than approach the topic head-on.

Cute. A real man offers a comparison of business models, and a gay man tries to duck the topic.

 

Reading comprehension. Get to know it. Shintao Mushroom is comparing working at Wal-Mart with working at Costco. He's pondering a career change. THAT'S the topic little 'puter!

Cannonpointer see your above post...for the link you were asking for !

 

But in the mean time...on a TV she bought at Walmart, (where George Zimmerman once worked) Sarah Palin simultaneously watched Fox News about global warming caused by Israel and the effect it has on the peace loving Palestinian people, while she read a article on gun control (and day dreamed about what has a greater impact...same sex marriage or the war on women) as she ate a Chick-Fil-A sandwich... washing it down with a 64 oz Coke, that she bought at a Koch Brothers franchise, right next to the Catholic Church (where the local Tea party meets) which was built where a old growth forest use to be that the Indians used for burying their dead and as a center for redistributing the wealth of the deceased until White Christian European males (who Mitt Romney is a direct descendant of) came and stole their land and planted it with genetically altered crops, than polluted it and never paid enough taxes on it because they were rich and took advantage of the Bush tax cuts.
