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

Pros

-Working with animals
-Learning about animals

I got the job because there was a new Petco opening up in town. The interview was one on one, the training was pretty long.

Cons

-the animals smell bad
-cleaning dirty animal cages
-getting bitten by animals
-not enough pay for the gross work you do (a little bit more than minimum wage)
-catching live crickets

You don't have a set schedule, so it can change every week. Eventually I quit this job because I couldn't stand cleaning the animal cages, etc anymore. I wouldn't go back unless they paid me a lot more.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your associates and other managers, if its good for the goose its good for the gander. Don't play favorites and let it show.
