    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at PetSmart (O'Fallon, MO) in September 2011.

    This was your basic retail interview. They go more in-depth for manager interviews then associate interviews. Asked basic questions such as: why you chose Petsmart?, what kind of pets you have?. Also asked where you see your self in a few years, is this a career or just a job. Asked questions on how you would handle different customer service issues.

    Application

    interviewed at PetSmart (Joplin, MO) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Fairly standard interview process. Talked about aspirations, scenarios involving customer situations, compensation and bonuses. They have an office with a one way window that they will bring you in to speak to you. After speaking with the hiring manager they will typically wait forty eight hours to give you a phone call. They will ask you to come in for a second interview and offer employment.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at PetSmart (Albany, NY) in July 2009.

    Interview

    The hiring process can be a little daunting for management. I was moving from out of town at the same time and had to come to the area for 3 separate interviews with different store managers, and also did 2 phone interviews with a District Manager and a Coordinator. Most of the interview questions were pretty standard. There is a definite focus on passion for pets and on customer focus. While owning pets isn't strictly required, not having pets is definitely going to make the interview process more difficult to get through.
