8:13PM - Pay Stub?
So I've been working at Petco since July and I signed up for direct deposit on day one. It's been great, but now I am wondering how on earth one is supposed to view their pay stub. Is there a website I have to go to where it's posted or do I have to request it?

Man, I haven't used LiveJournal in forever. I don't know how active you guys are anymore.
Anyway, I am a full-time groomer at Petco. Have been there over a year now. Love my job; it's my life. Has been since the day I started,
Just curious about the 401k, I know I'll be using it to take advantage of the match they've offered and will roll into an IRA when I move on with my career choice. I am located in San Diego, don't know if my options differ from those of you based elsewhere. Just curious what are investment options are and what I should be choosing??

9:59PM - PTO Question
I am feeling so confused about this at the moment. I've been working at Petco since June and today I went to find out how much PTO I have - I assumed I should have some - and discovered I have none. When I asked why, when I'm supposed to be getting it, my manager told me that I should have gotten some at my four month anniversary if I averaged 20 hours a week for those first four months. Well, I most certainly did average that! Most weeks I was working over 30 hours. Is she wrong? Am I confused? Should I be talking to human resources? This is a real problem for me as I need to take a week off at the end of March and was planning on using my pto so I won't be broke!

I just got hired at a Petco a month ago. So far it's surprisingly good, I was expecting it to be sketchy since I've seen bad reviews and complaints online, but I suppose it all depends on the managers and coworkers you get more than on the chain itself. I am blessed enough to have very, very nice and patient managers and coworkers (for the moment, I hope they don't have a turnover and hire a bunch of assholes). Thankfully I'm already very familiar with most of the animal related aspect (spending my childhood studying and showing every kind of pet imaginable in 4H paid off I guess) and I have a veritable menagerie living in my house, so the animal training is mostly just brushing up on things I already know.

2:42PM - Huge problem
So I've been working at petco for about 3 and a half weeks, and haven't received a paycheck yet. I filled out the paperwork that said I want NOTHING to do with the epay bologna. Now I'm sitting around, twiddling my thumbs, waiting for someone to pay me. This is absolutely ridiculous. I've been asking for the number for human resources, with no reply from anyone. My manager doesn't seem to care that I'm not getting paid - as long as she is. This is ridiculous. I've been speaking with my lawyer about this problem, and he said to contact everyone possible trying to solve this myself. However, if action isn't taken by someone within the next couple of days, you can bet that there will be major issues. I've faxed several forms of paperwork to human resources asking for either direct deposit or a paper paycheck, to no avail.
Current mood: angry

11:15AM - Part time employee benefits?
Hello, I am a part time groomer's assistant at PETCO in Fort Myers Florida. I was just wandering what kind of benefits I can receive as far as health insurance goes. I was told that my family's new health insurance provider claimed that if I am eligible for insurance from PETCO then they could no longer support me and I would have to go on my own through PETCO. I heard that part time workers are eligible for "Open Enrollment" but I am not too sure how to look into that. Could someone please give me some information about "Open enrollment" or other health insurance options?

10:59AM - PTO, maximum?
I'm actually a little pissed right now; I went on vacation for a week, put in a slip which had PTO clearly marked. I'm not going to NOT go to work for a week; I simply can't afford it. Like an idiot, I didn't follow up when I got back to make sure other people did their job. Suffice to say, I didn't get my PTO.

4:56PM - Tax Stuff
I worked at Petco up until last April. Since then I've moved probably 4 times, through a couple different states. Some of my mail has caught up and some of it hasn't. My W-2 hasn't (and I know the time limit isn't up yet, but I really think it's probably lost in the mail. I called my old store and the manager said that it was probably not worth it to try to go through corporate to get a new one.

Our groomers got tired of the windows so they made them all pritified. (Yes I know that isn't a word.) They did such a wonderful job that I felt the need to share their work with you guys.

11:32AM - attachment rate?
Is your boss being told attachment is more important then the donation drive that is going on right now? how does everyone feel about this?
Sunday, March 29, 2009
Quick question I'm too nervous to ask my boss! As an associate, do you get a raise every time you pass a CAS test, or was that just for the first one?

11:57PM - Two weeks notice
Does it say anything in the Petco employee contract about giving a two weeks notice? Is it required? I can't find any of my paperwork from when I was hired, or else I'd consult that. I really want to quit, and I can't bear the thought of working another day. I've only been employed about three weeks, by the way.

Anyway, couple questions.

8:50PM - Intro
Hi there. Just wanted to introduce myself. I started at Petco in Johnson City, NY today. I had a really great first day. I got to help clean the animals, learned register, and did some of the computer training. I'm not new to retail, having worked at Walmart *cringe* and CVS before this. My coworkers and managers have been really nice so far, so I'm hoping it continues this way.
