Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PetSmart (Virginia Beach, VA) in May 2015.

Interview

I applied online and didn't hear anything for several weeks. I finally received a phone call mid-day inviting me to a group interview. I arrived early and there were 3 other girls who were invited to the group interview as well (there was to be 4 other but one did not show). The manager accidentally told us to come too early (by 30 mins), but was very apologetic and rushed to accommodate us. The questions were basic, it was a good experience, although a bit nerve-wrecking for someone with public speaking fears! The manager is very nice and I can tell the staff is very passionate about animals.

    Interview

    It was very easy i was in for about an hour talking. Questions are basic run of the mill questions. The application took the most time it was annoying.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PetSmart (Houston, TX) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Short and brief interview, nothing hard. Managers asked if you are available to work weekends (that is when it mostly gets busy). Also ask how well you speak to a customer. Next interview (couple of days later) they give you the option whether or not you want the job. If you do accept, they tell you the nasty part of working in grooming. They tell you how dirty one gets by the end of the shift. I was a little skeptical after the one the managers told me this. Most importantly they want you to love animals. If you are not one whom loves pets, then do not apply.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PetSmart (Tempe, AZ) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I was called on my cell and asked to call back to schedule an interview. I called the Petsmart Grooming salon and spoke to the manager to schedule an interview a day or two later. Came in early; the interview lasted fifteen minutes and was fairly informal. Asked typical interview questions, as well as, previous pet experience and why I wanted to work at Petsmart. Afterwards I was told I'd need a second interview with one of the store managers. Scheduled that for a few days later; the questions were about the same and just asking me about selling products and availability. The next day I was called in to pick up paperwork for a drug-test with Labcorp down the street. Once the result came in I was called to come in a fill out paperwork and start training with a bunch of videos. The videos and workbook took me about four hours to complete.
    Overall the workplace was very relaxed and accommodating. Everyone, including upper management, was extremely friendly and polite. Almost everyone had a smile on their face and constantly joking around with one another in good fun. First time I've experience a workplace where everyone had a positive attitude and mood. I can tell this is a great place to work and gain animal care experience.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at PetSmart (Houston, TX) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed with salon manager and was asked very basic interview questions about things like strengths&weaknesses. Afterwards the store manager came in and talked to me briefly. Like a week later they called me to say I was hired.
