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

I have been working at Petco full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Where 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.

Cons

Pay 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.

    Former Employee - Pet Stylist in Spokane, WA

    I worked at Petco full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Anytime I needed time off, they were flexible with that or calling in.

    Cons

    GETTING BIT BY DOGS(IF YOUR A BATHER OR GROOMER), when I transferred to a Spokane,WA location, the coworkers made me feel very unwelcome. Most of them acted like they were too good to talk to you and worried about getting their big tips from customers rather then the safety and wellbeing of the dogs groom service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make all your employees feel welcome. Don't talk crap about them and think they cant hear you or see you. Its rude, and you need to grow up.(Towards grooming manager)
