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

    Pros

    You get to take care of animals....that's it.

    Cons

    The downside is this....the pay is terrible...especially if you are in the Grooming department. I wasn't aware that there was a competitive pay OR that we had to commission for our lives. Another thing that is bad is when there are adoptions because the people in charge will bring their dogs in for a nail trim or a bath and they are petrified because of not having so much human contact. Also, at one point there were those who had ticks all over them and another with what seemed to be parvo. I left because I was disgusted with employees and management and never want to work there again.

    Advice to Management

    Actually hire people properly and hire those who are serious about their job and watch out more for the customers as well as your employees.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, good benefits. Get to play with puppies. Possible room for advancement. No thinking involved.

    Cons

    Low pay, corporate always asking you to do more with less. No ability to think outside the box.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting hours and expecting better results. In order to properly help customers take care of animals and keep up store standards it takes having enough staffing.
