    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart (Port Chester, NY) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with multiple managers on multiple dates for the pet trainer position. The process was long for a part time position at a retail store. I interviewed for other positions in other stores and it was always a disorganized and disjointed experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    Phone call for Appointment, Interview was pleasant and pretty thoughtful.
    Confusion on whether I was actually hired after discussion of salary and the company required drug testing to be done within 24hrs of being handed the drug test papers.
    A slight misunderstanding about filling out paperwork after it was confirmed I was hired, and actually working on the day I was asked to come in for paperwork, was there for 4 hours that first day. Not a problem just a bit of a communication issue.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PetSmart in August 2011.

    Interview

    After applying online I was called for an interview. Arrived 15 minutes prior and had to wait 25 minutes to be seen. Was led into a very small, hot room with two managers. One simply read random questions from papers in his hand and the other just sat there looking around. Overall I was not impressed, and had I been offered a position I would have declined it.
