Not bad for retail

Lead Pet Care Specialist (Current Employee) Cincinnati, OH

ProsI personally just generally hate working for a retail store but I won't let those feelings cause me to be biased. This company is not that bad to work for as far as retail goes. Pros would include: benefits aren't bad, you get to see and be around cute animals all day, good promotion chances.

ConsI have worked in two different petsmarts. One in FL and on in OH. Management was horrible in both. They seem to treat you like you are bred to work for that company. They don't seem to care that you have an over full time college schedule or any other life. But all retail is probably similar. Raises are so small it is a wonder they even give raises.

Advice to Senior ManagementWe are not cyborgs built to be petsmart employees 24/7 so stop treating us that way!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    I have been working at PetSmart full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: I was lucky to have a good salon manager to teach me to groom. If you… Cons: Work isn't always steady and your paycheck reflects this. The money isn't always there. You can only do as much as your body allows.… Advice to Senior Management: Add on's add on's add on's! That's all you hear about. It would… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
