Current Employee - Operations Manager in San Diego, CA
Current Employee - Operations Manager in San Diego, CA

I have been working at PetSmart full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

working with animals, helping like minded people. Satisfaction that you can make a difference in a pet parent and pets life. Company benefits are great and the pay is very competitive. Team players within the District, all managers are very nice and helpful, no matter which store you contact.

Cons

not able to manage due to having to task because not given enough hours for associates. Not company but District micro managing makes it difficult to get all tasks done on time, finding it necessary to work more hours in a day than you should.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

This is not the job for you if you are not someone who is willing to work the hours it takes to get the job done, normal hours for a day is 10, but finding it to be more like 12-14 at times. Also, you must be able to multi-task and have a very good ability to pay attention to details.

    Current Employee - Grooming Salon Associate in Bridgewater, NJ

    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.
