I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at PetSmart (Mason, OH).

Interview

Interview went well, I was already a cashier petsmart sent me to grooming school... Overall working for petsmart wasn't horrible till the end. They went through many store managers within our new store within a few months, towards the end of my career with petsmart they had FIRED every manager and employee that had been there very long time and well over 10 years! And it was all set up to be done that way!

    Very informal interview with store manager. He asked questions about grooming education and experience.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at PetSmart (Woodinville, WA) in March 2012.

    Interview

    Filled out an on-line application, wasn't called for about a month after the fact. Was called in for an interview. Interview was pretty easy, lots of questions involving giving examples of how you would respond in certain scenarios. Had three interviews in one setting, with the store manager, operations manager and salon manager. Was called back a couple days later to come in for new hire paperwork.

    Interview

    Application in online-only, but call and be persistent about getting an interview. Only one interview, very informal, followed by a drug test. If you pass, you will be called to arrange your start date for associate training.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't one, but for salon associates, they are looking for people who will stay a few years in the job, not a few weeks.   Answer Question

    Interview

    We played phone-tag a lot before I was hired. It took a few weeks of back and forth because the hiring manager was never available. I had one interview with multiple managers in one small room, which was quick but slightly intimidating. Overall it wasn't a bad experience, but it was not pleasant either.

    Application

    The process took a dayinterviewed at PetSmart in October 2011.

    Interview

    They called me pretty quickly for an interview, I was excited and schedule an interview with them. I had a one on one interview with an incompetent manager. He asked me the general questions, he was a tad rude. Apparently they are not looking for goal oriented people. It was generally an extremely odd interview. I ran out of there.
