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

    Pros

    Establishing relationships with customers and their pets, having an opportunity to express yourself through your work, Petco is full of opportunities to improve and learn

    Cons

    It can at times be hard to express needs to upper management, but this seems to be getting better. Grooming for a corporation can be frustrating, as they have the opinion "the customer is always right", but this is to be expected from a corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to the needs of stores, and less to the bottom line. Productivity would be much higher, and employees much happier if needs were met more quickly and thoroughly.

    Current Employee - Companion Animal Department Manager in Omaha, NE

    I have been working at Petco full-time for 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.
