    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.

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    Interview process went very fast and was very relaxed. I interviewed with the manager two days after I applied and then his boss the next day. During the second interview, they showed me around the store and gave me a basic overview of what I would be doing. I was offered the job during the second interview, but could not give them an answer right away because I was waiting to hear back from other full-time positions, so they gave the position to another person.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PetSmart (Casselberry, FL).

    Interview

    I got a phone call yesterday, to come in for an interview today. I waited for about 15 minutes for the hiring manager, and while I was waiting another person for an interview showed up. We were interviewed as a team, at the end of the interview the other person was asked to come back into the hiring managers office for a quick question about his application, and I was told I should hear back after my application is given to the GM. Being interviewed as a team was a bit hard for me, I was being too polite and wouldn't cut the other person off in order to speak. However some questions were aimed towards me, so I got a voice out there. The interviewer was so nice and the other interviewee seemed passionate too! Overall and okay experience, I'll post back if I end up getting a call.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart (Princeton, NJ) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly easy but it took a bit of effort . First I had to deal with that god awful online survey (I think it was used to determine personality or something like that.) Was then called 3 days later for a phone screening...after that was told to come in a few days later where I had a short interview with one manager (we just talked about my knowledge about fish , snakes , cats etc). Second interview was pretty much the same but it involved more of what I would be doing ....my pay offer etc. Overall was a pretty good process as a introduction to the work place (first job I've applied too) .

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Easy...not much to negotiate as I was actually offered more than I thought I would be.
