    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your associates and other managers, if its good for the goose its good for the gander. Don't play favorites and let it show.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Consistency 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.
