    I have been working at Pets at Home full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It was fine working here - coworkers were very nice, and management was very fair, plenty of emphasis on team bonding

    Cons

    It can get a little boring sometimes - there are no enticements to get you to stay, or work harder, you are just viewed as a replaceable part of a large team

    Advice to Management

    Better communication with all levels of staff

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pets at Home (Burscough, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Group style interview setting, not the best and short interview one to one at the end isn't great in showing potential for job. Group of about 15 people. Focussed heavily on group building tasks.
