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

    Pros

    The people there are very knowledgeable and care about the animals.
    You get to spend time around fish and reptiles.
    You meet other people who love fish and reptiles.

    Cons

    The hours are the worst I've ever had.
    Bad pay.
    You meet people who have know idea how to care for animals and don't want to learn.
    The store is severely understaffed, it's not uncommon for there to only be 3 people working at a time.
    The position was advertised as full-time, but was really part-time. A bit sketchy if you ask me.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to take care of customers.

    Pros

    Training is ever going. Learned a lot about all types of animals whether it is about food, wellness, how to keep them happy as well as trained.

    Cons

    The pay for the work you do is not good. They need to pay better.

    Advice to Management

    Love the company but the work that is expected especially the small animal care is worth a lot more than the pay that is given.
