I have been working at Petco full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Benefits
-Paid vacation time
-Working with animals
-Feeling that the company genuinely does care about the welfare of animals. They really truly do a lot to give back.
-Flexible and reasonable hours.

Cons

Like with any retail position work place politics come into play.

Advice to Management

I think overall the company is run very well. I think perception of the job depends on what store you work in. If there was a way to eliminate work place politics it would be wonderful.

    I worked at Petco full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Met plenty of good people with common interests.
    Paid vacation that rolls over
    Discount on dog food

    Cons

    Ridiculous office politics
    Being forced to ask for donations on religous based holidays or suffer hours being cut.
    Not enough hours being distributed to run stores effectively.
    Numerous donation drives make it seem more about a tax write off rather than geniune care.

    Advice to Management

    Do some in-depth filtering of management and start a profit sharing program with non-salaried employees. Abort the general manager positon altogether

    They are given feedback every year that is consistently the same and nothing changes.
