Petcare Associate Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart (Jacksonville, FL) in July 2017.

Interview

The interview process was fairly quick. Although it took over three weeks for anyone to call me. There was a small phone interview when I did finally get a call. I came in three days later for the interview. that took about 30mins. Overall it wasn't terrible. I feel like the manager was almost as nervous to have me there as I was being there but once he asked me about what animals I had and am experienced with everything seemed to calm down.

    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.

    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.

    Negotiation

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