I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunity for advancement, paid training, mentors, great people and working with animals. Good vacation plan, good retirement 401k plan.

Cons

Long hours at store level, very top-heavy so it sometimes takes unnecessarily long to get issues resolved.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Always speak up! Your ideas do matter and are taken into consideration. Also, make sure your the majority of your staff is promotable!

    Pros

    Company training provided. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    Its going on 5 years now and the grooming tables are still broken, stuck about 2 feet high so you have to sit on the ground to groom. Washer and dryer broken so you have to handwash towels and hang them out to dry. No standards for grooming. Glass enclosed heated drying crates are very dangerous. Plugs hanging out of wall.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix whats broken!

    Pros

    The people to work with.

    Cons

    Crappy pay, smaller stores. Never get any sort of incentive to do and maintain a good job. Favoritism is ridiculous at some locations. General Lack of respect for the associates who earn the bonuses for the managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Happy employees make happy customers....so why not make the employees happy by paying them more than minimum wage?
