The GM at this location is playing favouritism with the dog trainer Emily Breeden. She has rung her self out, yelled at other employees in front of customers, does not work just sits in grooming and talks trash about everyone there. She has not showed up for work she has showed up five hours late is always talking on her phone. She like to trash petsmart and pets plus does not even want to train or talk to anyone with a petsplus dog. She will go up to the customer ask where they got it from if they say petsplus she will start saying horrible things about their dog. It has diseases, rabies, its untraceable and kennel bread. She has told the GM to fire other employees because they show up late, talk on their phones, don't work, talk trash about others and he does it. He has fired three all for reasons she has done as well and she is still there. The two of them sit in the office for hours just talking and gossiping about everything and everyone. We have documented all actions all employees that work here. I personally am quoting because of the way these two are. I have read if a employee is making a hostile environment they should get fired or written up. She is already on her last warning still doing the same things she did before she got written up. The GM is not doing anything but letting her and standing right with her. She does not do anything in the store stocking, cleaning, selling classes, front facing, dusting. All she believes she has to do is train and sit in grooming if we ask her to cover a break she yells and says "not my job'. The GM says nothing. Here's a little something a groomer sent me the other day of the two talking in grooming and more from talking on facebook messenger this is from my self a manger, an employee and the grooming manager.

So yeah. While the three of us were in there I was asking John for help with the Petco app and Emily was in there complaining that none of "his employees" did anything around the store and when he asked "like what?" She said that the doggy bags needed to be refilled and he said "so go do it" and she threw a fit about how she is the only one that does it and she refuses to be the only one that does everything. And that he needed to teach people to do their jobs. Pretty sure you and Aaron were the only ones there at the time and he said that you only had two weeks left so "training" you to do anything was pointless. And before leaving the salon she said "I'll be gone in two weeks too" and he said "give it to me in writing" and she said "just kidding!" In her peppy little snarky voice.
Emily does not do anything in the store. She considers herself a manager and makes everyone do what she wants. If they say no to her she tells the GM to fire them and he gets right on it, soon after they are fired.

I think this is the start of petcos big downfall. Sarah, Michelle and I will all prob be gone by Christmas. Sherry and Aaron are definitely on their way out. Largely because John won't do anything about Emily. she's a snake Idk why or how she gets away with what she does..I'm going to start looking elsewhere I'm tired of this and going to Gary is clearly pointless I mean not even fired by LP on a final warning?? But yet Andrew got fired over discounts? Cmon!
.
kandi I am sorry you were and are treated in such a way by both john and Emily. it pisses me off.

I'm trying to say the GM and the dog trainer are a pair they talk for hours by them selfs in the office. She has done everything that the past employees got fired for. ringing her self up, threatening the company, talking on her phone and not making donations. Another thing is the GM mentioned that the only way she could be saved from termination is if she had some kind of health related issue not a week after she comes up with a health problem just that right there shows it. How did she know that she could be exempt if she had a problem not ironic right. She has never once said anything about any health problem's now she has one but still goes about doing the same old routine she does. The GM letting her.
So I'm quitting to get out of that environment. I do not feel good going to work anymore I feel drained and emotionally not feeling up to going because of her. I used to love working there get up an hour before work smile laugh with customers. Now I do my best to cover up that I don't enjoy work anymore. Hostile environment.

    She can't even use her real name? Really? Its unreal that the Petco management would believe a spoiled child like Kandi Walter (Kenewiwe) that has had everything handed to her her whole life, complains about everything, than a hard-working employee like Emily who brings in so much money from all her training, knowledge and experience with animals of all kinds. Shame on you Petco Stafford for believing her and rumors! What Emily says is always true and hurts no one! She is ALWAYS protecting the animals! And if that is what you don't stand for, I will not be coming to your store anymore and I bet there will be a lot more people feeling the same way!

    I have also work with Emily. And I can honestly say yes she is good with training the dogs as far as I can tell but she does lack in her people skills. We had a lot of customers complaining about not feeling comfortable around her and her being a little rude and un empathetic towards customers.
    She cares about the animals yes but she leaves something to be desired in her people skills.
