I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

You get amazing health and vision. Along with 401k. Selected products are sometimes anywhere from 20%-50%.

Cons

Little pay! All managers are underpayed with the exception of General Managers. Cashiers start of propably at around $8.50 if you are lucky the most you will start with is $9.50. Raises use to be given fairly. Now the most you can get is a quarter.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

STOP HIRING SO MANY NEW MANAGERS! EVER WONDER WHY SO MANY PEOPLE QUIT!

    I worked at Petco full-time (more than 5 years)

    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 pallets sit on salesfloor until worked, but heaven help you if the DM comes in. They don't want it on sales floor but doesn't have any suggestions on what else to do with it. Can't change delivery times. Hands are tied.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have open, honest communication with your GM's. You have no idea what happens in a typical store.

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

    Pros

    If you really care for the customers they will give you compliments.Learning how and what to do when taking care of different animals will give you a perspective of what other pet owners may have to go through.

    Cons

    No one informs you enough of what not to do on the job that could result in a write up and such, you have to just work and figure it all out when it is to late.
