    Pros

    Great quality of life. Fun atmosphere with a variety of daily challenges.

    Cons

    Senior leadership out of touch with the day to day operations at the store level. Attitude of what can you do to improve rather than how can we help you succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase advertising to compete with our direct competitor. We are virtually unknown and they are on TV all of the time. We are proud of the job we do and it is disheartening to constantly see our competition publicly grabbing for market share.

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

    Pros

    Very organized. Clean. Great help from the staff and managers. They are willing to promote those who really work to managers which is awesome

    I loved working there. The manager of my Florida store was so helpful and involved with everyone. He truly cared about all of us and made an effort to get to know you. The training modules are very informative and helpful. The store is well organized and they stressed cleanliness which I loved!

    Cons

    I had to work very long hours at times, but it was because finding individuals with fish and reptile knowledge was difficult in my area. I had accumulated so much overtime at one point I was no longer allowed to work past a certain set schedule. The are strict with their schedules and if you forget to do something they are quick to get on you for it. So keep up on your required work!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing. I loved working there and if i ever get the chance I would jump at the opportunity to work there again. Long hours and all!
