This was my biggest issue with them.
I mainly worked night shifts (unless someone called out, then they would contact me 30 minutes before we opened and expected me to be up and ready when my shift didn't start until 2). I averaged 7 hours a day. Worked 5 days a week.
My co-worker who was also a cashier was given all of the morning shifts, and got anywhere between 8 and 8 1/2 hours a day. Morning workers got more than night.
I strongly preferred mornings, but didn't complain about my night shifts. I would make a request every now and then to have a morning at least once or twice maybe a week. I just wanted fair shift rotation. Those requests were always ignored.
I mostly enjoyed working at Petco, but this was just rude to me.
