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

Pros

Meet new animals weekly. Play a role in the quality care of all animals. Teaching and public speaking a necessity. Rewarding.

Cons

Experience dependent on the support of superiors and culture created by coworkers. Limited resources for animal care.

Advice to Management

Select more well rounded individuals presenting desire for growth as opposed to just filling job. Create workplace culture.

    I have been working at Petco full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Establishing relationships with customers and their pets, having an opportunity to express yourself through your work, Petco is full of opportunities to improve and learn

    Cons

    It can at times be hard to express needs to upper management, but this seems to be getting better. Grooming for a corporation can be frustrating, as they have the opinion "the customer is always right", but this is to be expected from a corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the needs of stores, and less to the bottom line. Productivity would be much higher, and employees much happier if needs were met more quickly and thoroughly.
