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

    Pros

    Depending on department you get to work closely with animals, which is the best part of the job. It's great to see adorable puppies and adult dogs come in and make friendships with their 'pet parents'. Generally the company is easy to get along with, until they're not. These things are probably fairly dependent on which particular store you work at.

    Cons

    Having devoted many years to one location, always picked up shifts on short notice when requested and received superb marks on my reviews I expected to be treated with respect. However years of service seem to get you nowhere when the store management makes arbitrary decisions that negatively effect you. I suppose that is somewhat expected when it comes to a big box store like this. Employees are expendable and interchangeable to a company like this.
