    Ok place to work if you love working with animals, but the overnight shift is underpaid and overworked.

    Pros

    Love working with animals
    Managers are friendly.
    Flexible scheudling

    Cons

    Overnight shift expected to get a lot of work done and not a lot of pay for it.
    Money to pay tons of managers all throughout the company, but hourly workers get overworked and underpaid.
    Corporate micromanages company to death. Tons of checklists to sign off on.
    No benefits for part timers, even though Petsmart offers a "comprehensive and competetive" benefits package and has a "pro associate" philosophy no one other than hourly managers or leads in the Pet Care dept and Seniors in the store are full time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more for the work that you expect workers to do.
    Let managers be managers and stop micromanaging from corporate offices.
    Play better music.
    Flexible Dress Code.
    Make more people full time other than managers/etc.
