    A once fun job that is quickly becoming cookie-cutter retail that just happens to sell animals and supplies.

    I have been working at Petco

    Pros

    - Being around animals all day.
    - Request offs generally approved even with short notice.
    - In general, wonderful co-workers and associates.
    - If willing, you can learn a wealth of knowledge from other workers and managers from dogs to reptiles.
    - Several online training courses including extensive dog nutrition.
    - Customers seem much more friendly and polite than in most other types of retail, and when you help you get genuine thank yous from them.
    - A wonderful job to talk animals with customers if you share the interest.
    - Donations help local shelters

    Cons

    - Request offs are generally approved even with short notice.
    - No set schedule, and you don't know what you are working on Sunday until Thursday or Friday evening. (Not just this location. Seems at the very least district-wide.)
    - Little to no communication from senior management. Even on critical issues.
    - No management training at all for associates moving up and are new to management. Assistant and up may get a few days crash course, but not much. The trend seems to be sink or swim, figure it out on your own.
    - Drama, excessive gossiping.
    - Favoritism from DM and GM.
    - Relies heavily on negative reinforcement with almost no positive.
    - Donations are encouraged negatively as well. Resulting in poor performance write-ups for those who cannot raise enough in a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Defend and stand up for your staff instead of throwing them under the bus and scapegoating.
    - Communicate, leave notes, print emails.
    - Focus on the whole, not the parts.
    - Follow P&P more closely.
    - Focus on morale more than numbers.
