I have been working at Petco part-time (more than a year)

Pros

Great team members and management help drive this company.
Understanding managers
Flexible hours
Paid training

Cons

Not enough Hours and no set schedule anywhere in the Phoenix areas.
Hiring anyone and anybody to take a position is great but leads to some bad people on the job.
Training is paid but trying to finish or take it up at a flexible time is a problem if you don't have the time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Training your people better, and the company will shine, also pay us what were worth.

    I worked at Petco full-time

    Pros

    Usually get a nice team of associates to work with. Best customers in retail to work with. Customers that shop at Petco or Petsmart are usually happy to be there and eager to learn information for their pets

    Cons

    Very understaffed stores. Usually one manager and one associate running the whole store. I have worked several years in retail, and this is by far the worst paying company. You must be extremely flexible with your schedule to work there. Raises are very degrading to your skill level. Also very high turn around in the stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the environment with customers is usually great. The old saying goes, "It takes money, to make money" A happier, more well staffed store makes for a better, happier shopping experience. A happier shopping experience leads to customers staying in the store longer and spending more money, while giving their loyalty to the company.
