I have been working at PetSmart full-time for more than a year

Pros

I love as a trainer for Petsmart. Being able to help owners improve their relationship with their dogs and keep dogs out of shelters, I always felt like I was saving a life! I loved having the dogs I trained come into the store and look for me and know exactly who I am. in less than two years, I trained over 300 dogs and im still going! :)

Cons

Because of how many people that enjoy working for Petsmart, its a long wait for a open position for management.

    I have been working at PetSmart part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It's fun to work with the animals and you will learn a lot about pet care.
    The customers are usually friendly (as are most pet lovers).
    Management is laid back but professional and the coworkers are fun.
    They are very flexible if changes arise in your availability. Just submit the change in availability form and they adjust.
    Difficult to get fired - you would have to either steal or give out your employee number for discounts to non-employees.

    Cons

    High turnover rate.
    Not the greatest pay.
    Lots of cleaning after the animals and dealing with their smells....
    Don't always get the amount of hours you would like. A lot of people look for a second part time job to help pay the bills.
