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

Pros

I have worked at several pet supply type businesses, and I have trained dogs for years. I honestly can say that going to work is a joy these days, rather than dreading the work day. My store I work for is clean, friendly, and knowledgable. Every store is different, and each district and the managers in those districts can be different, but I know that out of all of the companies I have worked for Petco treats their employees like people instead of just someone coming in for a paycheck.

The company offers discounts for associates, and is constantly trying to make things easier for staff (be it computer structure changes, to wardrobe, to an on-going training program so you can learn more about products.)

Here are some pros I came up with:

Friendly company to work for; benefits are good; time off requests almost always are honored; consistently offering new training for partners (employees/associates); opportunities to move up in the company happen more than other places I've worked at; working with animals; nice employee discount, as well as offers each month just for associates; many more pros.

Cons

I really haven't met many negative things since I've worked here. I know that's entirely unhelpful if you're reading this hoping to get some reason not to work here, but I really have enjoyed working for this company.

Advice to Management

Spend more time getting all team members actively working to help the store (via meeting huddles or incentives.)

    Pros

    Likes the company good environment and some work life balance. Benefits are okay discounts are good if you have pets.

    Cons

    Not room for advancement past store management. No program to develop beyond store manager. Benefits are getting more expensive and cover less.

    I have been working at Petco part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you really care for the customers they will give you compliments.Learning how and what to do when taking care of different animals will give you a perspective of what other pet owners may have to go through.

    Cons

    No one informs you enough of what not to do on the job that could result in a write up and such, you have to just work and figure it all out when it is to late.
