Pros

Freedom within the store to do what is best for the customer.
Ability to work with a lot of different types of animals.
Working with a Pet Care team that can make or break you.
Having a lot of control over what direction you want your team to go in.

Cons

P&P can be very hard to follow.
The 10 hour days get old fast quickly.
You are not able to make the sched for your own dept.
Short staffing makes being a manager very hard at times.

Advice to Management

Overall petsmart is a great place to work. I would recomend giving dept heads more freedom to run their dept as needed. work 4 10 hour days or 5 8 hour days because the 45 hour weeks are killer.

    Pros

    Get to help people with their pets. Like to work early in the morning. Like working with a few people.

    Cons

    Underpaid for work. Lots of criticism from different people. Expected to do unrealistic amount of work with the people I work with.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to stocking instead of just complaining about it. Make smarter decisions about some of the people you hire instead of doing personal favors.
