And it was all set up to be done that way!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at PetSmart (Madison, WI) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was very laid back and simple. I was interviewed in the manager's office by the assistant manager, however the store manager was in the office doing other things and basically joined in the interview process. I applied online and heard back from PetSmart approximately 1 month later. I had minimal grooming skills when applying so I was told that I would need to start off as a bather, but would be sent to the next grooming academy. One week after the interview I was called in to do an offsite drug test and on-boarding. I was officially hired 3 or 4 days later and started work the same week.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart (Nashua, NH) in August 2012.

    Interview

    Very simple and relaxed interview. The manager and salon manager will talk with you. Applied for a bather and eventually became a stylist. They explain the job and make sure you can handle the stress, multitasking, and teamwork. You NEED to be able to handle a stressful environment and be a patient and caring person to do this job. Most of the animals don't want to be there because they are getting a bath (what dog likes baths? very few) it is your job to be kind and relaxed for the animals sake. If you aren't the person for this job you will find out the first day that you can't handle working in a pet salon.
