I worked at Petco full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Excited kids getting pets. Discount. Steady work. Seeing cool new pet products. Making money. Co workers passionate about animals. Adoption.

Cons

No hours. Shifts cut often. Animals get sick and die. Stinks if your store has a rodent problem. You have to clean up dog poop and pee after guests animals who are too lazy to do it themselves.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employees with respect and fairly.

    I worked at Petco

    Pros

    I had a few pretty decent store managers. Training was good, I learned quite a bit. If you like animals you do get to spend time caring for them and such.

    Cons

    I frequently had to do much more than my fair share of the work because many of the other employees were lazy, inept, or both.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better people=better store=happy customers
