Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at PetSmart in January 2011.
Interview Details –
The day I was interviewed, Corporate was also there doing their thing. I had answered an ad with the Night Care Pet Specialist title, but the actual ad suggested it was a stocking job, and they would train to use a forklift. I was called to come in for an interview. When I was interviewed, the position was described as 'some cleanging, some stocking'. I agreed to that and was hired on the spot after being interviewed by 2 managers. The actual job was no stocking and all cleaning up after, walking and feeding up to 60 dogs a night alone.
Petsmart is big on their associates being "Pet Parents" so much of my interview was spent talking about my dog, cats and my daughter's horse. I showed pictures of them on my ipod and did the typical pet parent bragging. Aside from the basic "tell me about how you handled a difficult situation" and "what is your biggest challenge in the workplace" type questions, we mostly talked about dogs.
Interview Question – When have you had a difficult experience with a dog and how did you handle it. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation, and there was no shift premium for working nights. You cannot leave the building for your breaks or for any other reason once the alarm is set for the night unless there is a manager on site, which was not the norm. Understand that this position is not one where you might get to go home early, or have slacker days.
Pros: you get to meet many pet parents and their pet children. the work is easier than other retailers worked for. even though you receive very little instruction, it is very easy to catch on independently. Fantastic and inclusive benefits for a small box… – Full Review
