I have been working at Petco full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

I love petcos vision, they truly do care for animals

Cons

I think they could pay a lot better more fairly, be consistent with what all of their stores look like, better pos equipment

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please pay your top performers better, compare to others in same kind of work position

    I worked at Petco part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great broad experience in retail management (merchandising, advertising, planograms, etc.). No specific job, all sales associates completed a variety of roles.

    Cons

    Management that cared little about developing their talent pool. Employees that were not committed to the job and made it difficult for those who were interested in doing their job correctly. Little to no supervision or direction in a lot of cases.

    I have been working at Petco part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I get to play with other people's pets! Nice discount for employees. Rewards card is very helpful! Fairly laidback when it's not busy compared to Target. My boss is very good about scheduling around things or rescheduling a shift if given prior notice (ie can't come in until 3pm but your shift starts at 1? no problem!)

    Cons

    Sometimes short staffed. Rude customers (but that's everywhere!). Have to call a manager to verify 100's and 50's which can take a while depending on when they're busy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let more than just the managers verify the 100's and 50's! Show us how to use the UV machine yall use, customers get impatient having to wait 2-5 minutes and we constantly apologize for the wait.
