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

Pros

I really enjoyed the people I worked with and it was my first job ever. They were extremely flexible to my schedule in college and I had a lot of fun at dog grooming because of the team I had in the Salon.

Cons

Not really that many, was sometimes hard with certain dog owners and not being able to make them happy. Plus, having a difficult or stressed out dog can be hard too, but with experience you can handle it better.

Advice to Management

Maybe offer more incentives for part-time employees and benefits.

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

    Pros

    You get to work with animals all day which is nice.

    Cons

    The company treats you terrible. The employees are inadequate. They have very poor business ethics (charging customers on things they did not get), pay is terrible, multiple times I have seen them mistreat animals.

    Advice to Management

    Hire better people, watch your employees.

    I worked at PetSmart full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Seeing dogs, cats and various animals all day is better than an office wall. The majority of people that enter the store to shop are happy to be there. Coworkers are generally pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    Some requirements sent down from the corporate office are illogical in real world situations. Cleaning up dog pee & poop is not the most pleasant experience, especially when its not yours!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees, we see things at a different level.
