    I worked at PetSmart full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    working with animals, fun and challenging environment

    Cons

    very strict policies, district managers distance themselves from stores, individuals are held responsible for team assignments, threatened for not selling services such as training and grooming, not much positive recognition.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was in management for PetSmart for over 5 years. We had little to no contact with our district manager. He seemed like a dark hidden figure behind the curtain, only there to threaten our jobs for under performance and not there to offer support or advice on how to improve.
