    I have been working at Petco part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I love working with animals, it is a good change for me. Hopefully I will get more than 21 hours a week and some commissions on the baths.

    Cons

    I work with young adults and have little patience for the loud music when the manager is absent, not to mention I feel it is rude to the customers as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know every area of your store right down to the equiptment that is used because you can't teach a job you don't know yourself. Review videos instead of pictures taken from a cell phone. Do not give a capet call or write up without proof, this just causes anxiety for the employee/s. Never go by word of mouth even if you do trust that person bringing it to you they may have alterior motives.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Generally, people who love animals are nice people. Petco is a very collaborative culture and the people who work here are great. I get to bring my dog to work and wear casual jeans all summer long. They have dog parks, foosball and a Wii as well as a beautiful facility in San Antonio. They really are great about following their values: Integrity, Learning, Continuous Improvement, Teamwork, Performance, Recognition and FUN!

    Cons

    For corporate associates, it is difficult that we do not get benefits for 3 months and are unable to contribute to the 401K for a year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust the benefits by audience. Corporate has less turnover than retail so offer them benefits to complete with other corporate jobs and not other retail jobs.
