    Department Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Petco.

    Interview

    Very informal. The Interviewer did not seem to have prepared for the interview. They talked to the company down and made it sound like a not good place to work at and then asked if I was scared away yet.

    Interview Questions

    • They only asked personal questions. They had the interview questions on the screen in front of me and did not use them. They left it up to me to ask any questions and give any pertinent information.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I got a call after applying online about 3 days or so later asking me to go for a group interview. I went to the location they sent me to and went at the time they told me they said interviews didn't start until a certain time. That was annoying. They were holding district wide interviews. I left because the wait time was more than an hour. After that I was incredibly annoyed. I forgot about it and a couple of days later I got a call from the store I actually applied to and called me in for a one on one interview. The interview went smoothly and i'm glad I gave them another shot. There were a lot of situational questions about previous jobs and school and what not also asked about availability and willingness to work with certain animals. I was offered the job on the spot.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you saw a co worker doing something wrong, what would you do?
      If you saw it was me?   Answer Question

    Groomer Apprentice Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Petco (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I filled out the online application and about a week later was asked to come in for an interview. The store manager sounded annoyed and I should've taken that as a sign but I really wanted the job. Once I got to the interview it was terrible. It was a group interview and right from the start the store manager was awful. You could tell who she wanted before she started asking questions and when she did she just directed it to that individual and didn't give the rest of us time to answer. The salon manager on the other hand was very nice and super helpful. She told us exactly what we'd be doing, what our schedule would be, and showed us around the salon.

    Sales Associate/Cashier Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fargo, ND
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (Fargo, ND) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few days received a call to set up an interview.

    The interview was incredibly short. They asked me to tell a bit about myself because my application didn't say much about me. They wanted to know what I liked to do and if I had any pets. They went over my availability with me. That was it.

    I was told there would likely be a second interview with other managers and such, and that I would hear back by the end of the week. I never heard back, not by email or call. Three weeks later I receive a call (identical to the first) about setting up an interview.
