I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Easy job, good benefits. Get to play with puppies. Possible room for advancement. No thinking involved.

Cons

Low pay, corporate always asking you to do more with less. No ability to think outside the box.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop cutting hours and expecting better results. In order to properly help customers take care of animals and keep up store standards it takes having enough staffing.

    Pros

    This company provides a competitive Salary

    Cons

    This company deceives the public into thinking into believing that the company puts pets first. I took over a store that the entire stock of small animals and birds were infested with lice, filthy conditions for both store owned pets and the emplyoees who worked in this store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you consider yourself a professional high level manager stay away from this retailer. You will not be accepted or prosper. District Managers are extremely unqualified.

    I worked at Petco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you love animals, you will get to interact with a lot of animals of different varieties. That's about it.

    Cons

    Even as a full time manager, the schedules are not set or consistent. Expect to work 7 to 10 days in a row, without any over time thanks to schedule manipulation. As a manager, I was only getting paid $10.53 an hour so the pay is very low. The GM would regularly make fun of people, including myself, in front of others and they would think it was funny. When confronted about it, all she would say is "quit crying." Very unprofessional. Oh, and that schedule I mentioned...work that many days in a row, only get one day off, then have to go right back in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All full timers should have a set and/or consistent schedule with two days off in a row to spend time with their friends and families. You might also think about increasing the pay scale.
