I worked at Petco part-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Fun place to work, but that's because I was positive about it. It's all about the people you work with. My coworkers were pleasant to work with so it made it easier. Responsibilities could be challenging sometimes, but if you're goal oriented, it makes it easier. You get to interact with the animal companions who come into the store. You never know what you're going to get sometimes.

Cons

My experience was great. I didn't have any cons.

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Their 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 ManagementAdvice

    I reemphasize the above statement. WE NEED MORE HOURS to have proper staffing.

    I have been working at Petco full-time for 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!
