    I worked at Petco part-time (less than an 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.

    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.
