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

    Pros

    You learn a lot about animals and can help change a pets life as long as the customers are willing to listen and believe in what you are teaching.

    Cons

    Upper management (DM, VP) ask a lot out of one person and tend to not put any blame on themselves and are unwilling to be available to teach or train their store managers. All they do is dictate and express disappointment over conference calls and threaten your employment. They never give GM's ASM's any praise for all the work they do. A lot of the time I was working 60+ hours a week just to keep up with the demands of our DM.

    Advice to Management

    Stop dictating and realize how hard your employees are working. When stores are growing in business they need more payroll to help customers and keep the store clean. Also when a store is 20+ years old and a building is even older, spend money to update it (i.e. the floors) otherwise customers will always have something to complain about even if they have had the best service of their lives.
