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

    Pros

    Working with the animals was a great experience and the customers were awesome. Animal lovers typically are just gentler, calmer customers. Not many pros about the company itself.

    Cons

    I have been in retail management for 12 years and I have never worked for a more dysfunctional company. The store manager is a glorified stocker, cashier, warehouse, janitor, you name it. Anything other than managing absolutely no worklife balance! The pay is poor and limited full time positions, so you hire inexperience and expect the world out of them. Turnover is high for a reason. I stayed for 4 years hoping it would get better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You do not live up to your so called values and culture.

    Pros

    The discount on clearance items and some of the regular customers made it okay.

    Cons

    Inexperienced upper management running experienced long term employees. Think of teenagers literally bossing 40 somethings around. The pay rate was like all retail, low, but working as a bather for minimum wage is obscene.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be up front about the sales goals and other duties involved with a bathing position, and be more ear about how to achieve a living wage without throwing dogs in and out of tubs like a cruel factory.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
