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 Management

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.

    Pros

    I love petcos vision, they truly do care for animals

    Cons

    I think they could pay a lot better more fairly, be consistent with what all of their stores look like, better pos equipment

    Advice to Management

    Please pay your top performers better, compare to others in same kind of work position

    Pros

    I get to play with other people's pets! Nice discount for employees. Rewards card is very helpful! Fairly laidback when it's not busy compared to Target. My boss is very good about scheduling around things or rescheduling a shift if given prior notice (ie can't come in until 3pm but your shift starts at 1? no problem!)

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed. Rude customers (but that's everywhere!). Have to call a manager to verify 100's and 50's which can take a while depending on when they're busy.

    Advice to Management

    Let more than just the managers verify the 100's and 50's! Show us how to use the UV machine yall use, customers get impatient having to wait 2-5 minutes and we constantly apologize for the wait.
