Worst job of my life

Retail Sales Associate (Former Employee) Charlottesville, VA

ProsSome people and animals were fun to work with

ConsFor a few years I had a very positive experience with this company with little to no complaints. Then I transferred to this location. In my entire tenure as a retail employee NEVER have I been brought into the office so many times in my entire life! For the littlest things! The words micro manage or OCD are good beginnings to describe upper management. They never applaud you for what good you do and constantly berate you if ANYTHING bad happens. Even joke about it afterward to twist the knife in your back even further.

Will also promise you things like promotions then hire someone new on the spot for the position you thought you were going to get.

Then again this location isn't alone in hiring lack-luster management.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet PNP certified. STAT! Then maybe clean house! Stop lying to your associates. When you promise them something, follow through. All reputable businesses do. Also it isn't exactly a positive experience to yell/belittle someone over a headset when the ENTIRE STAFF can HEAR YOU!!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Worst Job Ever

    Sales Associate/Cashier (Former Employee)

    I worked at Petco part-time for more than a year


    Pros: Nice customers, get to work with animals Cons: Too many to list here. Advice to Senior Management: My impression of this company as that they just don't care at all about their employees. My years there involved getting blamed and written up… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
