I worked at PetSmart part-time for more than a year

Pros

Was able to make a difference with customers. Gained insight into how Petsmart as a whole functions.

Cons

Hours were not right often (too few, too many, schedule during nonavailability). Training manual was outdated; as was a lot of equipment and supplies. Heath and dental insurance was useless, didn't even cover preventive exams (physical, well woman, etc.).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to scheduling, especially employee availability.

    I worked at PetSmart part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I really enjoyed the people I worked with and it was my first job ever. They were extremely flexible to my schedule in college and I had a lot of fun at dog grooming because of the team I had in the Salon.

    Cons

    Not really that many, was sometimes hard with certain dog owners and not being able to make them happy. Plus, having a difficult or stressed out dog can be hard too, but with experience you can handle it better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maybe offer more incentives for part-time employees and benefits.
