I worked at Petco full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

I could bring my dogs to work. Most of the people with whom I worked on a daily basis were great people.

Cons

Too much middle and upper management, far too many Vice Presidents.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There seemed to be too much focus on advancing to the VP level and far too many new hires were brought in as VPs creating a "too many chiefs" atmosphere.

    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.
