I have been working at Petco full-time (less than an year)

Pros

You get to work with animals and you can earn alot of pto if your full time.

Cons

most people are their for a check, don't really care about animals or how to take care of them

Advice to ManagementAdvice

listen to your associates and other managers, if its good for the goose its good for the gander. Don't play favorites and let it show.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere for the animal lover and getting to interact with animals while your work

    Cons

    Heavy tasking, with very little payroll.
    Lots of cleaning up after animals. they are fun to play with, but its not as much fun to have to clean cages and habitats every single day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seems like the people that make the important decisions at the company have never worked in the store to see how things actually run.
    Need more payroll, and drastically reduce the amount of tasking.
