    Pet Care Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    Pretty simple interview, although it came a good deal of time after I submitted the application (approximately two months). The majority of time was spent going over my resume, and utilizing that to draw questions. After that there were the 'scripted' questions, and of course the dreaded "What is your greatest weakness?"

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    There was just 1 interview. We went over my resume and they asked questions trying to figure out my current knowledge of pet care. It was a fairly short process. Once hired, I was sent to take a drug test from a nearby company. After that, I spent a couple of days watching videos and filling out a workbook to help familiarize me with store and proper care of the pets they had for sale.

    • Nothing sticks out to me. It was a very basic interview.   Answer Question
