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.

    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.

    Petco is a typical retail store with true concern for pets.

    Pros

    Petco pay is decent, good insurance, and it's rewarding if you love animals. The hours are reasonable, most stores open and close at 9.

    Cons

    Typical corporate attitudes, new programs without labor hours to back them up. They care more about the pets and their customers than they do about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to be the best, give the stores the hours to do the job. Also, rethink some of your policies. They are favorable to dishonest customers but you fire honest employees for making one mistake.
