    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (Wilkes-Barre, PA).

    The interview was very brief and quick, and they were very understaffed at the time so I was hired on the spot essentially. Not many questions were asked overall, mostly the details of the job were described to me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (San Antonio, TX) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied was called in around four days or so. Went in for a interview the following day. Horrible experience didn't even ask questions about the job or nothing related at all. Just basically asked what are my hobbies. The interview was not objective at all. And kept asking if I had any questions. And just let me go like that. Felt discriminated. I got a better job in a better environment, higher pay, and basically a dream job. I feel I am overqualified for this job anyways. Just had to put this out there.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Petco (League City, TX) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Very brief, talked with store manager, he contacted their HR, I heard back within 2 days with an offer. They offered me more than my asking price based on my experience. My concern is that the asking price I wanted was for a living wage for 40 hours a week however thy only offer 32-38 hrs a week so Im still falling short. It was a very informal interview with the manager, he even left once or twice to work the register which was annoying but i guess they were short staffed.
