Great place if management is good, but pay is lacking.

Grooming Assistant (Current Employee)
Minnetonka, MN

I have been working at Petco full-time for less than a year

ProsWhere I work, both the general manager and grooming manager (I work in the salon) are great people to work with and really on top of their duties. The place would be much different without them. The animals are the best part. In grooming, you get to spend all day meeting and working with dogs.

ConsPay isn't the greatest. Starting as an assistant groomer, pay is just above minimum wage. If you're full time (in grooming at least), work is basically your life. Hours are long and the salon can get insanely busy.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
