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

Pros

The job is as easy as any retail job. Cashiering, stocking, cleaning. Plus you get to work and learn about a variety of small animals, birds, reptiles, and fish. If you have pets its a decent discount at 25% Petco brand, 20% on all else.

Cons

Their motto is "Animals come first"...wrong. Payroll does. We never have the staffing we need to properly take care of the animals and do everything else in the store as well.
Plus seniority has no factor in day-to-day operations or promotions

Advice to Management

I reemphasize the above statement. WE NEED MORE HOURS to have proper staffing.

    Pros

    You get amazing health and vision. Along with 401k. Selected products are sometimes anywhere from 20%-50%.

    Cons

    Little pay! All managers are underpayed with the exception of General Managers. Cashiers start of propably at around $8.50 if you are lucky the most you will start with is $9.50. Raises use to be given fairly. Now the most you can get is a quarter.

    Advice to Management

    STOP HIRING SO MANY NEW MANAGERS! EVER WONDER WHY SO MANY PEOPLE QUIT!

    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.
