General Manager waiting corporate decision on second background check in four months after being suspended with pay

General Manager (Current Employee)
Washington, DC

I have been working at Petco full-time for more than a year

ProsThe company has been experiencing growing pains but appears to be heading in the right direction.

ConsThe company has been transitioning this past year by adding background checks to their employment applications. These background checks are inconsistent and bias based on the "flavor of the day" interpretation. How can two background checks within four months, with the exact information place an employee on paid suspension?

Advice to Senior ManagementConsistency with background checks is the responsibility of Petco. Review your processes as it relates to an average background check in the retail industry which normally consists of a background check as it relates to criminal activity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
