    I have been working at Petco

    Pros

    1. It was a good learning experience.

    Cons

    1. Work environment is horrendous. It's a distribution center center turned into an office building. There is no air circulation. On top of it, people are allowed to get their pets to work. In short, the office building stinks.
    2. In my short experience of 10 months, twice senior management gave false information which impacted my job in a big way.
    3. Benefits are way below any industry standard. You get 4 PTO days in the first year.
    4. It's utter confusion up there--The work load is so much people have no time to complain. Senior management puts deadlines that are unrealistic and arbitrary. And if you can't meet any the deadline they still go ahead and make decisions.
    5. All I saw was "patch-work". If something is broken patch it and move on..when there is another hole..patch it and move one..

    Pros

    There is always business no matter how bad the Petco reputation is.

    Cons

    The rules for groomer's are a bit much. someone that doesn't know the first thing about grooming should not be making some of these rules up. If they feel the need to have such rules AA the 7 point check in, then they should work a day in a busy groom salon doing this 7 point check in.
