    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PetSmart (Jupiter, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was quick and easy. Very informal. I applied online and was called back the next day to set up an interview. The interview was set for the following day. Came dressed in shorts and a nice blouse and was asked to walk around for a minute before being called back. Questions were easy and it was a very relaxed environment. Left that interview and the next day I was called for a second interview for the following day. Same thing happened when I got to PetSmart, had my interview with the Store Manager who was SO nice. At the end of the interview he told me that I was hired and all I had to do was go take a drug test that day. Handed me a packet of papers and sent me to Labcorp across town. Today is the 3rd day after my drug test and I'm waiting on the call.

    Interview

    I applied online via Snagajob. I received a call from the Stock manager about two weeks later asking for an interview the next day. I arrived ten minutes early and was asked to walk the store a little bit because one of the cashiers was late. After ten or so minutes the manager came and got me. We went into a back office and began the interview.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received a phone call to schedule an interview. I went in for the interview with the operations manager and It went very well, and he scheduled me for another interview with the manager I would be working with. This interview went decent, not as good as I would have hoped but I felt as if I did okay. She told me that her and the operations manager would discuss my answers and give me a call when they have come to a decision.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart in August 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for an Early Morning Stocker position and within a few days I received a call to set up for an interview at 4:30 AM. Yes, that early. Wasn't really informed on how to get into the store so I just stood outside until someone saw me. The interview seemed like it was long but it was only 10 minutes. Questions were mainly behavioral. Two or three more people were waiting for an interview when I was leaving. The manager informed me that he had a few more interviews and stated that he would call that weekend to inform me whether I would go through for a second interview. I did receive and call and was told that the company decided to move in a different direction. I appreciated the call even though they didn't offer me a position. This was really the first time I've received a call back even if It was just to inform me that I wasn't hired, which is good because there has been many times where I was stressing about whether I was hired or not.

    Interview

    I was called and they set up an interview for me.I interviewed with two managers. They seemed irritated by me being there. The interview was in a super small office that the three of us could barely fit in. They told me that if they wanted a second interview they'd call me in a few days. They also said if I accepted the pay would be $7.50 and start at 15 hours a week.
