    Current Employee - Grooming Salon Associate in Bridgewater, NJ
    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.

    Current Employee - Associate in Camarillo, CA

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