    I have been working at Pet Food Express full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great sense of teamwork and respect. Strong morals guide corporate decision-making, not investor value. Being privately held is an great setup. Company is in the perfect size range and is growing rapidly.

    Cons

    Pay is somewhat lower than market, but still competitive. Reliance on internal promotion means some people are not qualified for their roles. Somewhat hard to integrate and most employees are here for life.

    Advice to Management

    Continue growing rapidly, and expand while the opportunity is present. Don't dilute company values, but expand at the fastest pace that protects who we are.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pet Food Express (Palo Alto, CA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to my local store but was called from a different location and asked if I was still interested two days later. I was interviewed twice, the second being with 2 of the higher management. I only met with one since the other had stepped out for lunch so he spent the entire interview repeating information I heard the first time in hopes the guy came back. They were considering me for two different locations, but were very clear they expected more authority/leadership from me "even though it's *just* a sales position."

    Interview Questions

    • I noticed you applied to the other location, I can tell you right now they are not hiring. Is that an issue?   Answer Question
    • Where do you shop?
      What do you feed your pet?
      Will attendance be an issue for you?
