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

Pros

I loved the animals that would come in, and the customers had a passion for animals just like I do.

Cons

Completely Unorganized, training was almost nonexistent, manager talked bad about employees and customers, the store numbers were so bad the GM was about to get fired.

    Pros

    Great company if you have a passion for animals

    Cons

    Not enough payroll for what is expected from the store. Stores are very old and need major repair work. POS equipment is very old and outdated compared to other retail stores. They need to take time and understand what the team members want and need to run a successful store. More time is wasted with programs that are just busy work when the focus should be on helping the guest and working with the animals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to what your store managers have to say. You are wasting a valuable resource by not working with them.
