Easy retail work plus I work with animals

Sales Associate (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL

I have been working at Petco part-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe job is as easy as any retail job. Cashiering, stocking, cleaning. Plus you get to work and learn about a variety of small animals, birds, reptiles, and fish. If you have pets its a decent discount at 25% Petco brand, 20% on all else.

ConsTheir motto is "Animals come first"...wrong. Payroll does. We never have the staffing we need to properly take care of the animals and do everything else in the store as well.
Plus seniority has no factor in day-to-day operations or promotions

Advice to Senior ManagementI reemphasize the above statement. WE NEED MORE HOURS to have proper staffing.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

3 years as a GM

General Manager (Former Employee)

Pros: Loved the animals and the customers. Cons: Corporate is not involved at store level. Managers are expected to work the truck that comes anytime of day or night. No stockroom space so… Advice to Senior Management: Have open, honest communication with your GM's. You have no… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
