    I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    None for full time associates...unless you receive food stamps and housing subsidies from the government. If so than you will probably not lose your benefits due to the low pay and low hours you receive.

    Cons

    Wages do not keep up with even a moderate rate of inflation. Upper management is all about rewarding their most profitable managers with trips and bonuses while the hourly employees do all the dirty work at barely above minimum wages. Hours are typical retail..nights, weekends and whenever you are needed. Be prepared to scoop animal poop and deal with customers that want to pay internet prices for goods in the store, which is against policy. Computers are ancient...many still running Windows XP and it's just a matter of time before the system is compromised. The motto should be "profits come first" and everything else is unimportant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Take a step outside and see what's shaking in the real world" Get your butts out of the headquarters and do some work in your stores to get in touch with reality. We are not "partners" as you like to claim. A partner shares not only the work but the profits and you- do not pay a wage that encourages experienced people to apply and stay with your company and it will be the undoing of your money machine unless you start rewarding your people properly.
