No opinion of CEO

I worked at Petco part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

-Working with animals -Learning about animals I got the job because there was a new Petco opening up in town. The interview was one on one, the training was pretty long.

Cons

-the animals smell bad -cleaning dirty animal cages -getting bitten by animals -not enough pay for the gross work you do (a little bit more than minimum wage) -catching live crickets You don't have a set schedule, so it can change every week. Eventually I quit this job because I couldn't stand cleaning the animal cages, etc anymore. I wouldn't go back unless they paid me a lot more.
