Most Commented

  • Employee Discount(200 comments)

    % off varies. The prices are so inflated that even 40% off employee price makes it about the same as chewy or walmart. A locally owned pet store is much cheaper for basic animal care products.

  • Vacation & Paid Time Off(116 comments)

    PTO is now accrued per pay period. The one decent thing this company did has changed to their benefit. Based on hours worked

  • Health Insurance(78 comments)

    With health care going up in cost I think it’s a pretty good package.

As a part time employee, the best benefit I receive is the employee discount. By being able to have first hand experience with the items and foods I am recommending, it makes the encounter so much more sincere.

Petco matches your 401k contribution which is free money for the employee. I can’t remember how much it is but you can inquire when you get hired

They offer health care and life insurance. They pay for some life insurance for employees. I can’t remember what so inquire when you get hired.

The insurance packages suck, the deductible is so high you basically feel like you are paying for EVERYTHING out of pocket. You basically work to pay your insurance that you will never get to use.

Health insurance is average overall... I feel like health insurance is way overpriced in general, health insurance options are generally a high deductible (w/ optional HSA plan) or something else (I'm sorry, but I don't remember what the other option is now.... Neither one is really worth it, but it's something... Although this year I seem to be having trouble with verification of my insurance which has been a great inconvenience to say the least, I have had to forgo my annual checkup and pass up on my phone call to assess my behavioral health and wellness because of this issue and the fact that I can't afford to/and won't pay for it out of pocket and hope to be reimbursed for what clearly shouldn't be an issue when I have paid automatically via my paychecks and for whatever reason I couldn't be found or verified when I actually needed to use it ...!?! (Same goes for dental insurance, I pay for the premium plan which is $33/month and I guess it includes orthodontist as well, but I am unable to afford the deductible for the care I need so I'm just wasting my money for the coverage.... (But this seems to be more of an overall issue with dental insurance and coverage in general, not just a Petco thing...)

There are none. They keep you below 32 hours so they don't have to pay anything.
