Decent I suppose

I worked at Petco part-time

Pros

Working here is nothing special, pretty much got paid minimum wage for the year or so I worked there. Should have gotten a $.25 pay raise but forgot about it, didn't really care since I was leaving for school

Cons

Pretty boring a lot of the time and they force you to sell the donations like the companies life depended on it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Chill out a bit with the donations

    To much structure from corporate. Makes puppets out of everyone.

    I have been working at Petco full-time

    Pros

    Working with the animals can be fun.
    Seeing the pets that come in is good.
    PTO is generous - if you can last at least a year.

    Cons

    Payroll sucks - and nobody wants to acknowledge it, yet they keep piling on one stupid project after another.

    They want 'meaningfull engagements' with the customers - yet you are one of only 2 or 3 people working the entire store, while trying to complete a multitude of tasks.
    Great training tools (MLC) - yet no hours to utilize them...

    They want you to sell dogtraining classes - but supply no support to execute the classes ($400+ in dt sales = 1 hour of payroll for 6 weeks, $360 - 3 classes sold - gets you nothing to conduct them.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit playing philosophical games (GROW models, Wags n Lics) and let your managers run their stores... where hours would go to people that deserve them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
