I have been working at PetSmart part-time (more than an year)

Pros

good compensation and health plans for you and your pet, bonus $$$ :)

Cons

say bye to your personal life, especially if you are a new hire. no weekends, no holidays, no time off from october to january. the way the company is moving now i feel like i am a salesperson and not a manager. Promotions can take more than a year :(

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look for internal talent, some of us are being wasted just because we intimidate them by having more educational training, sad to say it but it is true

    Pros

    Coworkers are great, many of them very knowledgeable and caring about pets.

    Cons

    Pay sucks- you get .05-.25 cent bonuses every few months. Management too lazy to cover your breaks & lunches, sometimes we didn't even get them. Some customers overly zealous about their pets so you have to be careful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop coming into the store criticizing every minute detail. It's never going to look 100% perfect. Also, stop harassing the dog trainers and threatening them with their job. They can't FORCE people to buy classes!

    Pros

    The dogs, loved working with them.
    Most coworkers were nice and helpful.
    Employee discount was nice.
    Liked being able to wash my dog there for free.

    Cons

    Schedules change without notice.
    Rude management, doesn't want to work with employees.
    No cooling system in the pet salon.
    Old equipment.
    Old, useless brushes and scissors for the bathers, groomer must pay for their own supplies.
    Groomers have to pay for their own certification.
    Lots of rules that were good for safety but lots of silly rules just in place to flex muscle of management.
    Catty work enviorment with all the ladies in the salon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that employees mostly want to do a good job, there is no need to talk to people with disrespect just to prove a point to everyone else.
