ConsThe smell of the store in some places can hinder you nose and can get upsetting very quick

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more friendly with animals around customers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Oh no!

Assistant Manager (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ

I worked at Petco full-time for more than a year

ProsWorking with animals and great customers.

ConsFor 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 ManagementDo 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

Ok

I have been working at Petco

ProsLove 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.

ConsThe pay could be better. If upper management would stop cutting hours then maybe the employees would be happier working here.

Advice to Senior ManagementHow about giving raises where raises are due and giving employees recognition for a job well done. Company morale would go up.
