I worked at PetSmart part-time (more than an 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.

    I worked at PetSmart full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    This was such a fun job, besides me already loving animals to death it was great working with them. I had mostly great managers, one I did like except for a few details but overall liked management.
    -Interview process was great, they asked if there were any animals I was not comfortable handling and I said crickets (hate them). I guess most people say that because they sort of disregarded it, (all employes must be able to handle them) and figured I'd get used to it. Im so glad they did or else I wouldn't have gotten the job.

    Cons

    -Minimum wage (expected with retail)
    -Customers can have such certain stigmas about animals (hard to break).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Overall everything was great, but with time off it would be nice to let you know only two weeks ahead instead of three.

    Pros

    Working with animals, decent pay, and the management team is willing to work with associates to help them grow.

    Cons

    The pay could be better for such a successful business. The hourly managers get paid next to nothing for the amount of work required.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay you hourly managers what they are worth so they don't leave at the first job opportunity.
