    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 ManagementAdvice

    Do your job!! You are an embarassment to the corporate world. I am ashamed that I ever for you.

    I worked at Petco

    The people are very friendly and helpful. They really care about pets. They care about the employees and have a great team.

    The hours are bad. They do not care about your home life. They expect you to put the company first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    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 ManagementAdvice

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