Employee of the Month was shot at a Costco Wholesale warehouse club in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Products in several interior shots display the Kirkland Signature house brand logo. In the scene where Zack and Vince are doing the final Employee of the Month challenge, on the shopping carts it says clearly Costco Wholesale. Construction of a Sam's Club store across the street had recently been completed; the rivalry between Super Club and Maxi Mart in the film parodies the real life competition between Costco and Sam's Club. The Costco location chosen is well known to Albuquerque residents; for a long time, it had been the only such store in town, previously known as Price Club.
