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

    Pros

    The people there are very knowledgeable and care about the animals.
    You get to spend time around fish and reptiles.
    You meet other people who love fish and reptiles.

    Cons

    The hours are the worst I've ever had.
    Bad pay.
    You meet people who have know idea how to care for animals and don't want to learn.
    The store is severely understaffed, it's not uncommon for there to only be 3 people working at a time.
    The position was advertised as full-time, but was really part-time. A bit sketchy if you ask me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire enough people to take care of customers.

    Pros

    The view and the animals it was ok for a part time job but its still a retail store which means dealing with customers who will do what they can to screw you over.

    Cons

    The do nothing managers, dumb ass customers, and the poor pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Petsmart pays better
