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

Pros

I really enjoyed working at PetSmart. The managers were usually very nice (though I had a couple who didnt know what they were doing, but they got fired) and the company was all about customer service. They did lots of fun contests where we could win prizes, and also would occasionally have parties where theyd provide food and drinks (usually around the holidays) that we could all partake in.

Cons

The only con here is that you dont really do exactly what youre hired for, you bounce around to stocker, pet care, cashier, etc. But, I actually liked mixing it up sometimes. Oh, and my store didnt really do an associate of the month type of thing. When they did decide to do it (randomly) you just got a 'soda card' for a free soda, bettre than nothing I guess, but when I worked at kohls, they rewarded you with a bonus in your check and you got to pick out an item from a catalougue, such as a personalized blanket, etc.

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

    Pros

    Getting to interact with animals, having repeat customers that you really get to know.

    Cons

    Micro-management, employees are never praised, only ever chastised. This creates a very stressful work environment and everyone is constantly worried about getting written up for one thing or another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on employee morale and stop micro-managing.

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

    Pros

    I've no clue what the deal is with all the negative reviews, but I suppose it varies from store to store.

    - Great customers and pets that come in
    - Decent wages for first time job
    - Clean environment
    - No issue managing work and school with the hours given
    - Easy to earn bonuses

    Cons

    - Not as many hours as I would like (Though I think that was mostly because of my school schedule)
    - A little difficult to move up into higher management, but that might be because the store is so new? (This one, I mean)
