Poor management styles, very unprofessional
Grooming Salon Leader (Current Employee) – Grandview, MO – March 3, 2018
The Grandview, MO Petco has gone through a large series of managers, the latest of which is a juvenile pretending to be an adult. She refuses to talk to her employees, except through texting, which is against Petco policy. She never is out on the floor, but always sitting in the office, watching the goings-on in the store on camera. She has lied to most, if not all, of the employees about each one's status and potential to promote or change positions inside the store. She has made up stories on multiple employees to make herself look better in the eyes of the district manager. She has made the store a very non-productive and belligerent environment in which to work. The district manager is continually trying to get "friendly" with the female employees, and seems to only want to hire similar people to the Grandview manager, based solely on looks and flirtations. The new "norm" for hiring new managers in the Kansas City Petco district, seems to now be hiring people as managers, who have been fired from multiple jobs, or having worked multiple jobs in a short time period. This new attitude promotes poor communication and a non-productive work environment, with a lot of tension created by an inexperienced manager. This leads to a lack of training, and a very hostile work environment.
high tension, hostile environment, poor management
