I have been working at PetSmart full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

As retail goes PetSmart is a great company to work for. I worked as an operations manager and store director for about ten years. The best part is working with the Pet Parents who come in with their pets are generally happy to be there, which makes all operations easier and the job enjoyable day in and out. Benefits are fantastic, and often make up for shortcomings on compensation. Work environment is fun.

Cons

Like most retail jobs there never seems to be enough labor for the amount of task PetSmart expects to be completed with an extremely high level of detail. The amount of task to be completed can often be overwhelming, and most of it they want completed outside of store operational hours; so you must be flexible in working above and beyond what's generally called for, especially if you are taking a salaried position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I loved working with PetSmart. Leadership training experiences were fantastic, but some of that leadership training should be directed to proven hourly management in the box who could really benefit from the morale boost and training from leadership programs.
