Pros

It's close to my house - less than 10 minute drive.

To many to list. Just know that all the negative reviews are absolutely 100% true.

Advice to Management

Why bother. I really don't know how some of you sleep at night or look at yourselves in the mirror.

    I worked at Petco full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful associates. Working with animals. getting regular repeat customers is always fun Educating people

    Cons

    Management is a huge problem.. At my store at least, they cared more about the customer more than the animals we were trying to sell them. Selling customers unhealthy animals Giving reptiles the wrong food when the right food was available Expect us all to have a clone hidding somewhere so us associates can finish the work load they dump on us. Drama, drama and more drama mostly management created. The pay barely makes the job of an animal specialist worth while no room to move un in the company

    Advice to Management

    Start treating your associates with respect. Instead of pointing out everything they do wrong, try pointing out what the do right. It might just boost moral and leave you with associates that actually enjoy coming to work instead of dreading an 8 hour day. Stop singling out and trying to fire associates who actually do their job and start singling out people who actually don't. We get it. Promoter is important. Beating your associates over the head with points we've heard over and over again is tiresome.
