I worked at Petco as an intern for less than a year
Pros – There are quite a bit of animals to wonder about, new fish seen everyday
Cons – The smell of the store in some places can hinder you nose and can get upsetting very quick
Advice to Senior Management – Be more friendly with animals around customers
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

I worked at Petco full-time for more than a year
Pros – Working with animals and great customers.
Cons – For starters, the pay is insulting and in Arizona they work you to death because you dont get overtime. This company is by far the most unethical company I have worked for. They do not value their employees and there are so many things that I have witnessed firsthand that are unbelievable. I have seen managers stealing, employees turned down for promotions because of reasons totally unrelated to thier job perfomance, harassment, confidential employee information leaked and so on... I had placed several calls to HR and upper management and nothing was done. My concerns were completely dismissed, so I left the company.
Advice to Senior Management – Do your job!! You are an embarassment to the corporate world. I am ashamed that I ever for you.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

I have been working at Petco
Pros – Love the customers and their pets, they look happy to come in. Also, coworkers are great. It's fun coming into work knowing you are going to have fun.
Cons – The pay could be better. If upper management would stop cutting hours then maybe the employees would be happier working here.
Advice to Senior Management – How about giving raises where raises are due and giving employees recognition for a job well done. Company morale would go up.
