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

    Pros

    Its a job, income and hours, and you get to work with pets. There are a variety of things to do there so if you are self motivated you will never be bored.

    Cons

    As a manager recently told me, anyone in retail is disposable and it's all about sales...it's a job, not a career path. Turn over is high and management is overworked.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with kindness, like they matter, not like they are disposable or unimportant. It is noticed.

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

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, work with animals, good chance to gain retail experience. The various departments offer a range of learning experiences and tools that can be used later on in future endeavors.

    Cons

    Sub-par pay, not enough advancement opporunities. Had to leave after I did not receive a raise that I felt I deserved after three years with the company. A 20 to 30 cent raise every 6 months just won't cut it.

    Advice to Management

    Managers are friendly enough, but should do a better job of leading by example.
