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)

    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.

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

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working at PetSmart. The managers were usually very nice (though I had a couple who didnt know what they were doing, but they got fired) and the company was all about customer service. They did lots of fun contests where we could win prizes, and also would occasionally have parties where theyd provide food and drinks (usually around the holidays) that we could all partake in.

    Cons

    The only con here is that you dont really do exactly what youre hired for, you bounce around to stocker, pet care, cashier, etc. But, I actually liked mixing it up sometimes. Oh, and my store didnt really do an associate of the month type of thing. When they did decide to do it (randomly) you just got a 'soda card' for a free soda, bettre than nothing I guess, but when I worked at kohls, they rewarded you with a bonus in your check and you got to pick out an item from a catalougue, such as a personalized blanket, etc.
