    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    learning about/ handling MOST of the animals

    Cons

    low pay, variable hours, annoying customers, frequently scheduled to work in dept. alone (basically getting paid barely above min. wage to do the work of 2-3 people and expected to give excellent customer service at the same time), hamsters

    Advice to Management

    start petcare/specialty out at a higher rate. the amount of physical labor required (weekly bedding changes/ scrubbing tanks/ feeding+ watering all animals in store/ administering medications etc...) to do the job on top of having to learn about not only all the animals in the store plus the products/habitats for them as well is way too much for min. wage and crappy hours.
