I worked at PetSmart part-time (More than a year)

Pros

Get to work with the animals, clean their cages, play with them a little.

Cons

Little kids wanting to hold the animals, get the exact goldfish they want out of the giant cage, oh, and you get to clean and handle the crickets.

    I have been working at PetSmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A great job if you were truly, unleashed ?

    Cons

    District Manager and Area Management are unprofessional, play games and manipulate talent. Not enough time to offer Customers, a great shopping experience. District Managers and Strore Directors do not have the skill sets to deal with lower management issues. They do not coach, mentor or train to succeed. Often the store culture can become toxic, there is not an atmosphere to succeed. Unfortunately lower and upper management set up an environment for failure than success.

    Advice to Management

    Retire District Managers who have been with the company over twenty years. Hire a management team whom has been in their own business. Entrepreneurial types, not managers who are content with sitting in the office working on scheduling, payroll and time efficiency reports. Let your HR work rather than take up all of the productive time spent by your Store Directors, Operations Managers and Presentation Managers. Encourage them, not discourage, mentor, coach and write performance plans to enable success, not failure. Action Plans are not a positive, just a way that you usure out the talent that probably intimidated the District Manager, therefore was a threat to job security and then showed the door.

    I have been working at PetSmart part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Get to see some amazing animals and people come through the doors. Working early morning shift you get to see a lot. They are extremely flexible with working around college schedules. Though I have not enrolled in benefits they have decent automotive, home, health, and life insurance. You get a discount for being a employee. And best of all moving up to new positions is easy and fun.

    Cons

    Hourly associates are at the mercy of how well their store does as far as sales and that affects scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    More benefits to part time employees.
