    I worked at Petco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The 18 days of PTO you get every year is great. And most of the fellow employees are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Way to many to list. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place like the plague. Its a great place to work for a student, but not worth trying to make a career out of. Pay is on the low end of the pet retail industry. Insurance is one of the worst plans with the highest cost out of pocket. Inconsistent scheduling makes it impossible to schedule a personal life around. Wish I wouldn't of given up 3 years of my life for this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a closer eye on you salary managers, and really take a closer look at stores with a high turnover rate. Ppl are leaving after just a few months for a reason, find out what that is and fix the problem.

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

    Pros

    Paid better than most retail jobs. They had books and test that you could take to advance your knowledge about animals. It was a fun environment,since there were animals all around that you could take care of, show off, and sell.

    Cons

    They were bad about keeping updated clean buildings. When I started working there, you couldnt even walk in the back stock area. I cleaned it up and found stuff that was up to five years old. Typical retail store issues with crappy hours sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean every night!
