I worked at Petco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Compensation good, associate culture good.

Cons

Cronyism, favoritism, no personal integrity among middle management. Lacking of talent.

Advice to Management

Look into how the distribution centers are being run. Lack of talent, and upward mobility.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    you get to be around animals

    Cons

    under paid. under appreciated. bad hours. as a groomer you only get 50% commission or minimum wage. you get forced to work till you feel like passing out just to make decent money and that's still not enough for the higher ups. they don't care that you have a family that you need to spend time with, they don't care if your children are sick or anything all they want is your money.

    Advice to Management

    treat your grooming staff better

    I worked at Petco full-time

    Pros

    It's fun dealing with the animals and fish. The pay was "ok."

    Cons

    It's unbelievable that this company can preach all day long about giving their customers great service but then not allow enough labor hours to successfully do it. I'm not talking about a couple of hours here and there. I'm telling you that it's not even close to being enough labor hours. MOST mornings it was me and one other employee. In the evening, it's again two employees total. On busy days, Saturday and Sunday, we had MAYBE 4-5 employees. It's a joke. The micromanaging is off the charts. If you trust someone to manage your store, give them a little room to breathe. It's not necessary to have a conference call every day. It's not necessary to insist on duplicate reports to document things. Give it a rest until something needs attention.
