Featured Review

Former Employee - Administrative Assistant

I worked at PetSmart full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great employe benefits and employee compensation.

Cons

Location of place of work.

Current Employee - District Manager

I have been working at PetPeople full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Passion for Pets / Nutrition Education encouraged Fun Environment/ Open to Tattoos, Piercings and People with Personality! Smaller Organization but Growing and Updating Technology Supports Local... Communities Discount on Products

Cons

Growing from a small business to has been challenging. Many people within don't enjoy the changes, but we've been able to grow through those changes. It is a multitasking environment and can we... challenging to juggle everything all at once. I enjoy the challenges of the job and helping people/pets, but we aren't perfect by any means. We've made plenty of mistakes, but genuinely want the best for all our employees.
