Avis d'employé sur Pet Valu
Awful, awful, awful.
I worked at Pet Valu for over a year and during that time I had never felt so put off by a workplace. (I worked in retail for over four years before being employed by this store, so I'm pretty well versed in how frustrating customer-facing roles can be. Pet Valu went above and beyond this.) First off, my interview was conducted in March of 2014 and I was not contacted until August of 2014. The manager at the time called me and said my first day was the next day. (I lated found out I would be replacing someone that was about to be fired.) Second, the district sales manager is, as someone else said, not the nicest person. (This is a huge understatement.) Myself and three of my colleagues send harassment claims about her to Human Resources. (These claims were never addressed, as far as I've heard.) My store manager was moved to another store after being given THREE DAYS NOTICE. The new manager was constantly cruel to me and threatened my job weekly. He gave me write-ups for made-up reasons and ridiculed me in front of my co-workers and customers. When I was hired, my position was sales associate. I was going to school at the time and only wished to work 20 hours a week. I ended up doing many other things such as paperwork, scheduling and the occasional order. I was also given 40 hours a week, even after asking to be given less. Throughout this, I only made minimum wage. In fact, when minimum wage in Manitoba went up from $10 to $10.40 an hour, payroll did not notice or apply the change to my paycheck for four months. They also went on to blame me for not telling them - plus...

animals are fun
cruel upper management, low pay, long hours
Management treated all employees unfairly regarding pay and overall interactions. Punished for being sick Basic necessities like soap in the bathrooms and a lunch break were not provided Store was cleaned with non pet-friendly chemicals
People bring their dogs in and you can pet them
Management is corrupt and inconsiderate
Worked at the busiest location in wpg. Training within the first month gives you a dollar raise, however it is to be done on your own time. Constantly was learning about pet care/nutrition each day of working from customers and coworkers. A typical day included stocking, helping customers, cleaning. Lots of times it wasn’t busy and that’s when you have to find things to do; when it’s busy you’re pushed to greet the customer and shop with them. Management was awful, manager would pick favourites and people would constantly talk behind your back and you never knew who to trust. Made working very stressful. Toxic environment.
