Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (Chico, CA) in March 2015.

Interview

Applied online, within a week received a call inviting me to an open interview. Came to the back of the petco store with 7 other people and had a group interview. We were partnered up and had to interview each other and then had to report back what we found out about the other person to the rest of the group. We also had to sell a pet product to the group. Very easy conversational light interview.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called about two weeks later. I was asked to come in for an interview at the store. I was asked a few basic interview questions and what pets I currently have. I was also asked if I was comfortable handeling reptiles and I replied yes, because I have several snakes. The interviewer seemed impressed. After that, I was told that they would get back to me within a week and that they still had a few people to interview. Four days later I recieved a call back with an offer. I wore a decent cotton shirt, a cardigan, jeans and flats to the 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.
