If being satisfied with pay and benefits appeals most to you when applying for work, this place is supposed to be better than any other company.

If only Winnebago County government officials could get a move on and open a place in Loves Park, job-starved Rockford area residents could start reaping the benefits.

That's because 18 million employer reviews from Indeed.com said Costco is a better place to work than Apple, FedEx, Verizon, and General Motors.

Time says "employees — including hourly, part-time and full-time Costco workers — also enjoy a slew of benefits, including health care, dental care, 401k programs, life insurance, stock options and more.

However, it looks like Costco construction is delayed and what for? The problem is with the $1.7 million host tax agreement.

The Costco project isn't dead, yet. For right now, it appears it's only on "hold." Another county board meeting is set for Thursday, December 13.
