    It was an OK summer job for me as a college student, but the overall work environment was rather sad and gloomy.

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

    Pros

    If you like dogs, becoming trained as a pet trainer might be a good career move. Discount on products is great for pet owners. Customers are usually nice and friendly, and meeting puppies and kittens that customers bring along cheers everyone up:).

    Cons

    Management is always overworked and they seem like they are going to fall apart at any moment. Not a good idea to run supervisors like horses if a company wants all its employees to be content. No one seems to be happy to work there, and there must be a reason for it. Also, make sure you don't have allergies to any pets that are sold at the store, like hamsters or birds, otherwise you'll get sick.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's a shame that all full-time workers were fired at my place and replaced by part-timers like myself so that the company could pay less and not worry about the benefits and health insurance. You have to provide incentives for people to want to make a career at your company, otherwise you have a store full of sad people whose only goal in life is to somehow survive the day. Be nice and respect your workers - they deserve better.
