Pros

They give you plenty of hours to work, pay is excellent if this is a first job.

Cons

Some of the managers can be pretty rude or snappy, but as long as you can get through with that and keep doing a good job or if they like you you'll be alright

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat others the way you'd like to be treated

    I worked at PetSmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Corporate office has gym and daycare on campus and is located near a hospital, shopping and plenty of restaurants near by for lunch.

    Cons

    Makes a lot of promises, but doesn't deliver. Management makes people feel unvalued. Teams are understaffed. Heavy workload with unrealistic deadlines. Work environment is very negative and unsupportive. Company used to be more about people, now seems to care only about the bottom line.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the office politics and start living your brand internally—"caring, authentic, knowledgeable,
    playful"—it's not noticeable within the corporate environment. Management's mantra of "Perception is everything" is the reason morale is so low and good associates are leaving in droves.

    I have been working at PetSmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    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!
