I worked for Petco for a year. I transferred to Springfield Illinois to a store here to help my disabled daughter with things from a store in Indiana.
I worked part-time for a manager who was disorganized in every way and wouldn't do her job. She left early every day and purposely scheduled me outside of my availability to conflict with another job that I had. She never would change my home mailing address in their system and I wasn't allowed to do this myself. The animals aren't taken care of well at all and I couldn't stand dealing with the place anymore, so I left there.The district manager's number and information wasn't made available to me ever and now I'm not being paid my final pay that I worked for.
I called their human resources department before and they weren't any help with my situation at all. So I had to call them again to try to get my pay situation resolved and someone from a foreign country told me that they have paid me and put it on a card. Then...why don't I have this card? I opted out of that and had direct deposit for my entire time of working there and now they are "shell gaming" me with a card that I was never given and don't want.
I want paid for the work they got from me and I am now filing a complaint against them with the Illinois Dept. of Labor.
There's no reason to have to fight them to get your pay for working for them and they actually think they can get away with this. My suggestion to you is don't work for them ever and you won't go through what I am just to support yourself and your kids.
