  • Working at Pets at Home was okay - plenty of chance to grow within the company, but not very fulfilling work

    I have been working at Pets at Home full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was fine working here - coworkers were very nice, and management was very fair, plenty of emphasis on team bonding

    Cons

    It can get a little boring sometimes - there are no enticements to get you to stay, or work harder, you are just viewed as a replaceable part of a large team

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with all levels of staff

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pets at Home (Waltham Abbey, England (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I HATE GROUP INTERVIEWS This was a group interview which I hate. It included a brief description of the role and the company and the possible avenues for progress in the company. Then we had to do 2 group exercises, the 1st group exercise was to design a fish tank and provide information about the target market and why you picked what you picked. My group was awkward and when we had to explain they both ran ahead and used all of my ideas leaving me with nothing to say. Then the second group exercise was to develop a product for pets and their owners. This time one of the people in my group changed everything last minute and left me and the other group member with nothing to say.

    Interview Questions

    • At the end of the group exercises we were taken away one-by-one to have an individual interview. They basically ask you about your availability, how will you get to work, experience, how would you deal with an angry customer and basic stuff like that. They ask if you have any questions for them, which I didnt. So i suggest that you thinnk of these ansers before.   Answer Question
