Costco membership can go to some people’s heads, according to workers.
Business Insider reached out to 49 Costco employees to find out what they wish they could tell shoppers but can’t.

Costco membership comes with some obvious perks — namely, access to the retail chain and its food court.

But according to dozens of Costco workers who spoke with Business Insider, being a member doesn’t entitle you to do whatever you want.

Business Insider spoke to 49 Costco employees about the things they want to tell members but can’t. Some of their responses focused on obvious problems, like members being mean and inconsiderate. But some of the tips were more instructive.

Here’s what they had to say.
