    I have been working at Petco full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits like health insurance, including dental and vision, PTO, 401k, and discounts. Room for advancement. Great pay! On the job paid training to learn how to become a groomer. I made 55k last year!

    Cons

    Corporate asks you to do a lot of things and paperwork when it should not be required and it takes you from grooming

    Advice to Management

    Love my managers keep up the good work

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Petco.

    Interview

    The District Manager seemed to prefer outside candidates over internal ones, or had certain employees were pre-determined candidates with transferred employees at the bottom of the totem pole. Wages were also not very competitive.
