    I worked at Petco

    Pros

    The training is adequate for the job. However scheduling shortcomings made balancing work-life difficult. Co-workers made work enjoyable.

    Cons

    Often understaffed, never offered raises that were given to co-workers for going through the same training for advanced certifications and new positions.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It's a fun atmosphere with people who love their pets and can be a great place to work. You get to meet people with the same passions and plenty of cute puppies. Corporate has a good philosophy, but your work experience truly depends on your general manager. Their think adoption first and new belief to find happy healthy relationships for animals and their owners is nice.

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't follow through with their philosophy to ensure that their individual store's are following them. They will not follow their own rules and regulations when it comes to customer complaints, so you have to be willing to do what it takes to make the customer happy. You will be asked to do tons of tasks while still maintaining a high customer satisfaction score with very little payroll to support both of these areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize that you are asking you employees to have a greater knowledge of products and pets than your competition and pay accordingly and as always more payroll would be helpful.
