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 Management

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

    I have been working at Petco part-time (Less than a 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.
