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

Pros

Fun to network with clients and meet their dogs

Cons

Management pushed me through a month long "training period" where I did a workbook and trained under another dog trainer. After that, they were not hesitant to push me in with extreme cases of dog reactivity or aggression. Puppy classes were fun, but they care more about the sales than your dog training abilities. You get 20% commission off of the classes, but even that is not worth the stress.

Advice to Management

Focus on more pre job training. You gave me 0 sales training and minimal dog training work. I would have stayed if I didn't feel so dissatisfied with my job.

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

    Pros

    Get to work with animals! Its amazing to see how much people love their pets. Good hours. Overall, it is a really fun place to work.

    Cons

    Cons, If you work in petcare you have to come in at 6am if you are opening. Also they really push you to sell store services, this is only a con if you are a bad salesman.


  2. "Too many responsibilities for the minimum wage."
