Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Clarksville, TN) in July 2017.

Interview

First, I did a phone interview, then went to the store the next day for an in person interview. I spoke with two managers separately. Both were very nice and asked some typical questions that were tweaked to fit the environment. I was offered the job in the interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PetSmart (Chandler, AZ).

    Interview

    Filled out an application online and they called the next day to schedule an interview. I first interviewed with the store manager and he asked about why I wanted to work at PetSmart and what kind of animals I had of my own. Then I interviewed with the salon leader and she didn't really ask many questions she just explained the job then asked if I would take a drug screen that day. She said when the results come back she would contact me with instructions on how to start training.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Webster, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    In total, the process took 4 days. I applied online(took the ridiculously long survey), and I was called two days later to schedule and interview for the next day. I met with the store manager, who hardly asked any of the basic interview questions. He was very friendly and easy to talk to, and we really only talked about my previous experience (I interned at an animal clinic) and he immediately offered me the job and sent me out for a drug test.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Lancaster, PA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was laid back and very quick. Not very many tough interview questions, mostly focused on availability, interest in grooming, commute, level of comfort with dogs, etc. They were extremely casual and easy to talk to. We talked about my college major (animal-related) and traffic. They told me how much money I could make once I become a groomer. I was spoken to as if I was already hired by the end of the interview. I was immediately sent for a drug test a few miles from the store.

    I was called for the interview within 2 days of applying online, hired 5 days post-application (day after interview and drug test) after not being called from another location at all.

    Side note: nothing at all was said about the multiple visible tattoos I have, and there was an employee with blue hair!
