Petcare Associate Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at PetSmart (Ontario, CA) in November 2016.

Interview

Did phone interview with the Manager get caught off guard. Their very first must-ask question is "why Petsmart"? And asked about safety with animals, if okay to handle reptiles, rats and most importantly your availability. Set up second in-store interview with team leader 3 days later. Second interview more like a chat mostly went through my resume. Nothing difficult basic question on customer service etc.

    Interview

    Simple interview with two managers. Very nice and easy, they are both nice I know them very well. Easy questions and didn't take very long. Don't need to dress up the nicest, very very easy interview.I was really worried at first but they both made me feel like I was one of a kind and not one of the many applicants.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    Process took about a 3 weeks. I applied at multiple locations and was called about two weeks later. First interview consisted of asking about prior experience with animals and if I was comfortable with them. Other questions were the usual situational interview Q's such as "tell me av time when you had to communicate with other workers to accomplish a goal or finish a project". The seconds interview was with the operations manager whereas the first interview was with store manager. Second interview consisted of going over availability as well as willingness to work across departments if needed as well as to practice approaching the customers. I was offered the job that day after completion of a drug test.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation possible as PetSmart starts almost everybody off at mid 7-8 an hour.
