    Pros

    Coworkers offer a friendly work environment. Employees at Petco are very hard working and do the best they can while working under poor conditions.

    Cons

    The company itself is very poorly run. Petco corp. has no idea what’s going on in their stores and don't seem to care. Whenever problems are brought to their attention, they launch investigations that go no where and accomplish nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don’t count on your managers to tell you whats going on in our stores. Managers that are not following rules and regulations or properly training employees, hide their short comings. Setup a situation where employees can feel safe talking about store problems. FYI, current system is not safe. Managers can and do get into system and find out what employees report and it's common knowledge.

    Corporate structure, lousy pay, lack of trust, threats made by power tripping managers, nepotism, management playing favorites with similar races
