I started at Petco as a temp and now work as full time. Job is demanding but general director and team do a good job keeping us informed and we trust him. He remains fair to everyone and we have seen a lot of progress since the last one, I am told by the older workers. Holidays are bad, but management is here with us so it's bad for everyone with no time off like normal company. Only 3 holidays off. Seeing good job progression and better employees being hired. Please don't let our boss go away. He is good for the DC and people.
I started working for Petco on August 31, 2014. My first pay day was supposed to have been Sept 19. But that never happened. It has been 3 weeks since, and I am still struggling to get my pay. After I have talked to several managers. I was also told that 9.45/hr was the maxed out amount that I could start at. So I don't know where these large figures of 58 thousand come from, but I really feel shorted now. Also, I haven't worked in 3 weeks b/c I was never given an employee ID number to properly clock in and out, and also b/c I have yet to receive my pay. So I have been yanked around for a month, supposedly I have a job, and supposedly I should be paid. Supposedly I exist. What a MESS! I call and I am told, someone will call me back, but that doesn't happen, I am told all kinds of things. This place may be "Where the Pets Go" but for the most part, the animals have been treated much better than I. But since I am human, I can't claim animal cruelty on my behalf.
I started at Petco in August, they offered me a move up. It was only supposed to be an 8 week program. Well I started in December, it's now March and I still haven't finished. I asked my mentor to graduate me and she flat out told me no. You're supposed to get commission for each class you sell. I sold over 1200$ in classes and didn't see a red cent. Recently my grandmother passed away, told my GM I may have to leave early. He smiled (cause apparently that's funny) and sent me home.
