  1. Guest Experience Specialist Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Petco (Mount Kisco, NY)

    Interview

    To describe the interview process as I experienced it would be a severe waste of everyone's time. Based on personal experience, and with supporting testimony from coworkers both past and present, I can confidently say that Petco will hire just about anyone. They may not be there for very long, but Petco is a company that would rather fire people than not hire them in the first place.
