Pet Trainer

Pet Training Instructor (Former Employee) Parma, OH

ProsFun to network with clients and meet their dogs

ConsManagement pushed me through a month long "training period" where I did a workbook and trained under another dog trainer. After that, they were not hesitant to push me in with extreme cases of dog reactivity or aggression. Puppy classes were fun, but they care more about the sales than your dog training abilities. You get 20% commission off of the classes, but even that is not worth the stress.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on more pre job training. You gave me 0 sales training and minimal dog training work. I would have stayed if I didn't feel so dissatisfied with my job.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great for some, unfortunate for others

    Pet Training Instructor (Current Employee)

    I have been working at PetSmart full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros: -I loved working with the people and the animals, yes some of the people were less than savory but it's a retail environment no matter… Cons: -There are some stores and employees that seem to have been "forgotten" -The hours are sparse, even for full time employees corporate does not assign enough… Advice to Senior Management: I would assign more hours to stores in order for them to be successful, be more involved in said stores so there is no forgetting… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
