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

Pros

Good pay until they find someone to replace you for less $$$. In my former district comprised of 10 Store Managers, all but 3 are left. The ones left were hired in at a much lower salary than all those who left or were fired. I know because I conducted the interviews for the new Store Managers.

Cons

Senior management does not follow the company initiatives such as the CARE model for associates. Since it was a program made up to look good for Wallstreet, they only expect store personnel to follow the program. Upper management does not CARE about anyone. You are just a number and your target date for removal is TBD.

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

    Pros

    Fun place to work. Many employee functions for team building and pleasure while encouraging productivity. I worked here for 3 years and enjoyed almost every minute of it. I worked at the HQ in Phoenix, AZ. Located near the highway so there's easy access and no real traffic. The RE department I worked in was growing fast and still is from what I hear from current employees there.

    Cons

    Not any real cons that I can think of.

    Pros

    You get yo be around animals and people that are like you.
