I enjoyed my time working at Petco. The main cons were the hours and compensation.

Pros

I loved seeing all of the animals come through the store and helping them all out. I enjoyed working with all of the customers and making them happy. We offered different services within the store, which was also nice.

Cons

There are a ton of rules to follow regarding the animals..what is placed in every single habitat, etc. The surveys they handed to customers impacted your store far too much. Working nights and weekends, compensation

Advice to Management

I don't have any advice but to compensate people better.

    Pros

    I loved helping people with questions regarding pet care. I got to work in the grooming department and enjoyed grooming. Managers were understanding when my grandfather passed away overseas. They gave me a couple of days off to attend via Skype and to take care of personal matters

    Cons

    I was blamed for a terrible cat booking when I wasn't even in for the week (funeral). From there on out, my coworkers would only give me small jobs and they would book themselves the higher paying.


  2. One of the BEST places I've worked!

    Pros

    Great people, decent pay, great place for people who have a love for animals

    Cons

    Long hours, especially on holidays and weekends

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you only hire people with genuine experience with animals or someone who is truly passionate about learning to care for them. Makes the whole place that much better and when you have knowledgeable staff who actually care about the animals, you have staff who actually care about the customers choices and your store's selection.
