    Petco is a typical retail store with true concern for pets.

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

    Pros

    Petco pay is decent, good insurance, and it's rewarding if you love animals. The hours are reasonable, most stores open and close at 9.

    Cons

    Typical corporate attitudes, new programs without labor hours to back them up. They care more about the pets and their customers than they do about their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to be the best, give the stores the hours to do the job. Also, rethink some of your policies. They are favorable to dishonest customers but you fire honest employees for making one mistake.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love the girls I work with in the salon, we are like a family. Most of the other managers are great. Best I have ever worked with.

    Cons

    They have a hard time competing for pay with their #1 competing company. I am only getting paid about $8 an hour as the salon manager but do make 60% if there is the business that I make more commision than I would hrly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better hrly pay and better vacation comp
