I worked at PetSmart part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Get to work with the animals, clean their cages, play with them a little.

Cons

Little kids wanting to hold the animals, get the exact goldfish they want out of the giant cage, oh, and you get to clean and handle the crickets.

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

    Pros

    Usually pretty fast paced. If you work in Petcare it is much more enjoyable because there are things to fill your time with. Management is very friendly. They prefer to hire from within, so you can really move up in the store.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of pressure to perform. Wages aren't spectacular. The store can be painfully slow at times. If you work in Petcare sometimes you have to play doctor with sick animals that we are clearly not qualified to care for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen more to your employees, we are the ones who really know how this store is run. The Petcare department receives hours based on their pet sales. This makes it really hard to keep the store clean, because if you don't sell that many animals there is hardly enough time to clean up after the animals we have.
