    Easy Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at PetSmart (Kansas City, MO) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Applied online to become a general core worker for the store.
    Afterwards, I walked into the store and asked the first person I saw who looked like a manager or senior staff member if they had any openings in the store.
    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at PetSmart (Houston, TX) in October 2009.

    Interview

    Basically I watched a 10 min video first and then one of the managers asked some questions. Another manager was present but he barely said anything at all. Just asked one question. They said they would look over the information and call me back tomorrow. Overall it was a very rewarding experience.
