I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at PetSmart in June 2010.
Interview Details – Applied online to become a general core worker for the store.
Afterwards, I walked into the store and asked the first person I saw who looked like a manager or senior staff member if they had any openings in the store.
The individual I happened to talk to worked in pet care and stated I had an opening.
They then reviewed my application, and had an in-person interview and afterwards, asked me to complete a drug-test before I could be hired.

Petcare Specialist Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at PetSmart in August 2010.
Interview Details – There is an online questionairre that is supposed to decide whether you are ethical or not. It takes about half an hour and asks you questions about criminals, fighting, jail, argumentative people, etc and tries to trip you upbe rephrasing it over and over. Then if you are lucky a month or two later you will get a call back. Or you will walk in and find out they forgot the papers in a pile on the desk a long time ago. Then they ask some questions about your pets and past work experience. Judging by some of the people they have hired, the questions don't determine much. You usually find out within a week if you are hired.
Interview Question – The questions were all relatively easy. I suppose the usual questions about dealing with angry customers or resolcing conflict would be good to have answers for in advance. View Answer
Negotiation Details – You start at base wage. There is no negotiation. If you are extra lucky they will even lower your wage from the previous year without discussing it with you or even notifying you upon re hiring.
