I have been working at PetSmart part-time (less than an year)

Pros

It was fun to work with the animals. The company provided very good training for the employees. Sometimes the customers would leave tips.

Cons

The pay is low considering how physical the job is. Sometimes you have to work with difficult animals that required two people to handle, but a lot of times you are left on your own.

    I worked at PetSmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    the store is a great place for animal lovers of all kinds, and the cleanliness is unmatched.

    Cons

    there's favoritism among supervisors and management, along with miss directed nit picking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    upper management needs to implement a stronger drug testing policy and do randoms every few mouths,especially in the NewYork metro area stores.

    I have been working at PetSmart part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Environment, handling animals (not cats and dogs), not stuck in one spot all day, decent pay and hours for someone in college living at home.

    Cons

    Management, dealing with certain types of customers (single-minded), moving up to management is difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat everyone equally, that includes other managers. The biggest problem I have seen is how certain managers get away with murder in the work place and the associates are the ones getting reamed for it. The fault is usually on the associate and not on management with store manager. It is not professional.
