    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.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Seriously bad upper management. Terrible training program.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees when they ask for it. You would do much better listening and managing by making yourselves available and encouraging. Employees lose interest and are less productive when management is based on intimidation.
