Pet Care Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Idaho Falls, ID
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Idaho Falls, ID) in July 2017.

Interview

The manager that interviewed me was very unorganized. She couldn't find the paperwork with my info on it, so after a minute of looking for it she just grabbed a notepad. She never asked for my name, so she had no idea who I was or any record that I was even there. Barely lasted over 5 minutes, lots of random, repetitive questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Northbrook, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was fairly quick and easy. I interviewed for a part time position. I interviewed with the general manager and a man who I believe was the district manager. They were both very friendly. It was more like a conversation than a stern interview. The district manager gave me a tour of the store and more details about the job position, what expectations would be, and general job requirements. I was then taken back to the general manager who asked me a few more questions. I was then offered the position. PetSmart does does ask employees to consent to a drug screening and background check, as well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart in January 2017.

    Interview

    They set me up with both my first and second interview with the assistant manager and store manager at the same time over the phone. The interview process was easy and I was pretty much hired on the same day. Each interview was pretty similar but on my second one with the store manager they gave me a tour of the store and talked to me a bit about the day to day operations.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Vancouver, WA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by petsmart about a week after I sent in an online application. When they called I was asked a few basic questions and scheduled an interview a few days later. This was my first job interview so I was very nervous, the manager I met with was really nice and made the whole process pretty easy. I did have to sell a product (supper embarrassing) but was told I would get better with time and practice. She said that she really liked me and offered a second interview the next day. After the second interview with the Store manager I was offered the position and was asked to take a drug test.

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Carmel, IN).

    Interview

    Quick and easy. You show up. They ask you the typical entry level interview questions. They quickly jumped to availability. You need to have open availability. If not, you won't be hired. Be aware, other staff take advantage of that. If you are the type to show up a little early, the staff catches on, and will walk in the door on the minute. They won't come in the 15 minutes early to help.
