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

Pros

The management and training structure was well defined and efficient- contributing to a knowledgeable and happy staff and customer base.

Cons

The company culture can be lacking at times. They would do well do facilitate bonding and growth through more employee interaction.

Advice to Management

Change store layouts/signage/goods depending upon the geographic area, to make them more appealing to the customers- helps them create a better bond with the store as a brand.

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

    Pros

    It's fun to work with the animals and you will learn a lot about pet care.
    The customers are usually friendly (as are most pet lovers).
    Management is laid back but professional and the coworkers are fun.
    They are very flexible if changes arise in your availability. Just submit the change in availability form and they adjust.
    Difficult to get fired - you would have to either steal or give out your employee number for discounts to non-employees.

    Cons

    High turnover rate.
    Not the greatest pay.
    Lots of cleaning after the animals and dealing with their smells....
    Don't always get the amount of hours you would like. A lot of people look for a second part time job to help pay the bills.
