    Great place to work, but it is retail.

    Current Employee - Professional Bather in Fort Wayne, IN
    Current Employee - Professional Bather in Fort Wayne, IN

    I have been working at PetSmart part-time

    Pros

    Obviously, you get to be around animals all day. Most Pet Parents who bring their pets with them into the store are generally happy, friendly people. You have the opportunity to train for almost every place in the store. Bathers can request to be sent to grooming school after a select amount of time. Never a dull day.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, as with all retail, there are customers, whom aren't always the friendliest, nor the most informed people in the world. The pay isn't great, but I would much rather work here than in any other sort of retail.

    Pros

    15% discount
    Monthly coupons
    Get to talk about pets with people all day
    Get to *meet* people's pets, particularly dogs, throughout the day
    Constant continuing education in terms of animal and pet care/habits/health
    Fun coworkers
    Corporate actually seems to give a hoot
    Seldom bored
    Usually close to places to eat/get lunch
    Get to handle/meet the animals as they come in
    Adopts out thousands of homeless cats and dogs!

    Cons

    Sometimes a little too much pressure, particularly on heavy-customer days
    Sometimes management is a little bossy (more than normal, I mean)
    Dangerous cleaning chemicals - don't get it on you!
    Typical demanding, unreasonable, jerkwad customers periodically
    Constantly on feet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to understand that employees don't need to have you a.) hovering all the time and b.) barking orders at them. Give them direction, and they'll perform. Trust your employees - otherwise, why'd you hire them?!
