Pet Care Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2017.

Interview

After submitting my Resume and filling out an application I got a call two days later to schedule for an interview with the PetsHotel manager which was a very short one. I have been doing volunteer work at a Wildlife center for about two years which was brought up and asked what I did there, I was than given a tour of the hotel that right after the interview. After the interview I had to come back in for a second interview with the store manager a few days later and than had to pas a drug screening. Overall it was a very simple interview and there is a pretty good chance you will be hired right on the spot if you are lucky to have both managers there during your interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Downers Grove, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I filled out an application online then received a phone call from the store manager to schedule the first interview. After that, I had to pass a drug test and when those results came I received a phone call saying so and then scheduled a second interview at which I was hired on the spot and given a tour of the store. There are training videos required by PetSmart to watch during the training process and within two weeks I was doing everything for my job on my own.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Murrieta, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was brought into the managers office and asked a series of questions by 2 different managers. I was hired on the spot.
    For what it's worth, the Store Manager quit the day after I was hired, which leads me to believe that was the reason for such poor quality of the interview.

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

    Interview

    I applied online first, the key is to go to the store and meet the manager. To show that you really are into this job, you have to have a small talk with the manager before the real interview. In the interview, It was a short face to face interview with the assistant manager. Two days later, they will send you into the Corp Lab to get the drug test done. Then congrats! You will be on board! Good luck!

    I went in applying for a part time job in Pet care and the manager suggested that I train to become a pet groomer, which is now what I plan to do for employment. The entire process was very quick, and the store had a very friendly atmosphere, I felt very welcome, and I'm looking forward to my third and final interview later this week.
