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

Pros

I think with big companies it all depends on the management of each individual store, and I had a great manager, worked with great people, I learned a lot made ok money for just being out of high school and found that we took care of our animals, and I felt like management really cared for the welfare of each creature in the store

Cons

I felt like the only bad thing was that I had to do the same jobs over and over again, for example cleaning the animal cages. This gets nauseating over time, to do it three times a week every week and no other associate has to do it but me, I understand I was really good at it but they needed to train others at it to.

Advice to Management

Little bit more training on how to get a hold of managers from the cash register, I found myself running around the store just to get an item more than a certain amount off.

    I have been working at Petco (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Playing with cats and dogs that visit the store.

    Cons

    Hostile environment. Low pay compared to similar positions in other retailers. My store has to do a conference call every single day if dog training classes wernt sold enough on the first day of the week.

    Advice to Management

    End micromanagement, stop constant threats, and restore faith in the company that used to be very good.
