I have been working at Petco full-time for 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

    i get to work with animals, and help people. it can be fun, but its definitely hard work!

    Cons

    they pay is decent for a retail store, we have a great management team. they offer 401K and medical. but its terrible insurance and the premiums are ridiculous!! especially if you have a family. probably the only bad thing about working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer better medical benefits to employess after 10 years. they have earned it!!!

    I worked at Petco full-time for more than a year

    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!
