    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PetSmart (San Antonio, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Easy peasy if you love animals. If there is something you wont work with, this department isnt for you. You need to clean all habitats, and it is not as awesome a job as it seems, which they dont tell you the amount of expectations to the hours do not match up.

    The individual I happened to talk to worked in pet care and stated I had an opening.
    They then reviewed my application, and had an in-person interview and afterwards, asked me to complete a drug-test before I could be hired.
