    Dog Trainer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tulsa, OK
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Tulsa, OK) in August 2017.

    Interview

    If you apply set aside time for the application process. Some of the information may pull from your resume, but not all. Be sure to double check it. Also you will take a personality/sjt test that may take some time. Interview was easy and fun, more like a conversation than and interview. I would say this is the best interview I have been on as far as comfortability is concerned.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was in three steps. A couple days after applying, I was called and asked to complete a phone interview. It went well and about a week later I got a call for an in person interview with the assistant manager. There were the standard interview questions (Tell me about yourself, why PetSmart? etc.) and more situational questions (Describe a time you did this...). It was fairly relaxed and the interviewer was really nice. About 1 and a half weeks later the store manager called for another interview. The interview had questions about in store scenarios. One week or so later I was called again and said they would like to hire me. All of the staff were really nice and helpful through the entire process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Thornton, CO) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Friendly & easy for the most part. 1st interview I had was with the assistant manager, only lasted about 5 minutes or so, and afterwards about a week went by and I hadn't heard back. So I called the store to follow up & the same woman who answered my call was the one who interviewed me. She didn't remember our interview and had lost the paperwork in the midst of getting the new store and other interview stuff together. So she had me come back for a 2nd one with the head supervisor, with whom I enjoyed being interviewed by since he was so laid back and friendly. I got hired on the spot and actually ended up with a position in pet care instead of cashier after 2nd interview and was asked to do a drug test within 24 hours.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any pets at home? & if so, name 3 things (besides food) you'd recommend to a customer purchasing said animal(s).   Answer Question
