I have been working at PetSmart part-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Getting to interact with animals, having repeat customers that you really get to know.

Cons

Micro-management, employees are never praised, only ever chastised. This creates a very stressful work environment and everyone is constantly worried about getting written up for one thing or another.

Advice to Management

Focus more on employee morale and stop micro-managing.

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

    Pros

    I've no clue what the deal is with all the negative reviews, but I suppose it varies from store to store.

    - Great customers and pets that come in
    - Decent wages for first time job
    - Clean environment
    - No issue managing work and school with the hours given
    - Easy to earn bonuses

    Cons

    - Not as many hours as I would like (Though I think that was mostly because of my school schedule)
    - A little difficult to move up into higher management, but that might be because the store is so new? (This one, I mean)


  2. "I had as good an experience at PetSmart as was possible while working in a retail setting."

    I worked at PetSmart part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fun group of people at my location - made everything better.

    Cons

    Like any retail store - it's open late and on the weekends, so know what you're getting into. If you don't want to work unconventional hours, then a position at a retail store may not be for you.
