    I have been working at Petco part-time (more than a year)


    Animal care standards taken seriously.
    Good environment.
    Interactions with people and their pets.
    Good starting pay.


    Little chance of advancement within the company. The pay raise is not enough to want to take a promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage internal hiring by changing policies concerning promotions/raises.

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Petco in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, within a week received a call inviting me to an open interview. Came to the back of the petco store with 7 other people and had a group interview. We were partnered up and had to interview each other and then had to report back what we found out about the other person to the rest of the group. We also had to sell a pet product to the group. Very easy conversational light interview.
