I worked at Petco

Pros

its a good job for high school or college students. It pays a fairly good amount for a standard retail job. An opportunity to learn more about a wide array of different animals.

Cons

Stores can often be understaffed and it puts unnecessary strain on the few employees committed to doing the very best they can do. The Management varies from store to store.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

please take the time to acknowledge your employees, especially the ones who have been working for the company for years, listen to their feedback and try to make things easier for the employees who take pride in their work.

    I have been working at Petco

    Pros

    The benefits of working for PETCO are competitive salaries, and an enjoyable atmosphere if you are a pet person. They also have a fair 401k for lower level employees. Also working in San Diego our store usually receives Padres tickets.

    Cons

    The long hours are the main downside of working in the store it seems as if there are always more things that need to be completed. The other thing is the degrading talent of lower level employees, we are receiving more applicants who love pets but don't have the retail experience to effectively run our store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to give the actual stores more room to operate and listen to the input that each manager has. Management is really caught up on there way but they are not in the stores and know what works.

    Great for animals not people looking for a non-corporate job.

    Pros

    If you love animals it is definately a great job. You get to know people on a first name basis and help solve problems regularly.

    Cons

    It is a VERY corporate store. If you do not follow protocal then senior management will find out. They don't necessarily understand the little parts of working in an actual store and some animal care policies are rediculous.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the store take care of its animals the way the staff knows the should
