    I have been working at Petco as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    You are around animals and you get a discount for your own animals. You can learn a lot about other animals.

    Cons

    There are sales quotas, always understaffed. Area is dirty and the employees aren't that knowledgeable about the animals they are selling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time educating your employees and customers.

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

    Pros

    They do offer attainable growth within the company, as well as, opportunity to switch into a variety of positions available. Health care benefit packages are available for both full-time and part-time employees.

    Cons

    Hours available for payroll are based on the last years' daily budget, therefore work schedules are at the whim of the area's economy for every pay period, which can affect part-time employees greatly. As well, in an economy that is slow for any given period, this factor can leave the large corporate store greatly understaffed; causing negative issues with customer satisfaction, target deadlines, and completion of employee expectations and duties. This lack of staffing can also have negative impacts upon employees that are students due to scheduling conflicts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More realistic expectations when understaffed and solution plans in place when this situation arises is advisable. As well, upon hiring employees that are students, working with their schedules is imperative as classes cannot be rescheduled around the company due to lack of staffing. Also, this lack of staffing creates conflict between customer service duties and proper animal care; mainly effecting the company's customer satisfaction rating.
