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

Pros

Good Managers
Good company to work for
eventful job

Cons

Bad managers
not enough hours
expected to complete more than is possible given certain time limits

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Sometimes it's impossible to complete the tasks asked of the petcare department. Completely cleaning and vacuuming 20-30 tanks before 11? It's possible if thats the only thing you have to do, but impossible if you're the only person working and you have other opening responsibilities to do as well.

    Awful in Nevada

    Former Employee - Floor Manager in Las Vegas, NV

    I worked at PetSmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    great customer interaction
    lots of interesting pets

    Cons

    hourly managers expected to work closing and opening shifts back to back; no recognition for jobs well done, only write ups for what wasn't finished on time due to no associate hours; no breaks or raises. Associates are expected to be available for all shifts at any given time. District manager hires and promotes mostly young males who are lazy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of this district manager! He's a complete idiot and has no moral compass.

    Company integrity (lack of)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please have more structure and defined roles for employees. I ended up being throw around positions in the store my entire employment and denied the job I proved myself time and time again in.
