Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Associate/Cashier

I have been working at PetSmart part-time for more than a year

Pros

My managers, coworkers, and even customers are great and make the job well worth it! I also get paid well and get to learn A LOT of things about products and animals that I didn’t know before.... Everyone is very nice and cares about you and helping you succeed if you put in the effort. You also get basic vacation time even as a part time employee and the company offers a lot of other benefits even at the part time level.

Cons

Usually part time workers only get around 20 hours but sometimes more. I would say the main con is how much the hours fluctuate.

Current Employee - Cashier

Pros

Great environment to work, the bosses are leaders

To be cashier straight 8 hours is very hard

Advice to Management

The employees should have lunch or dinner as a benefits
