    What are the average starting salaries, bonuses, benefits and travel requirements like at Petco? What do you like best about working at Petco? Are there any great perks or special treats for employees?

    Do you work at Petco? How did you find the job? How did you get that first interview? Any advice for someone trying to get in?

    I see that the application says "Work Experience" instead of "Employment History" and I don't have formal experience working with animals. Do I just go on listing my other employment( I do have childcare, animals are like small children, lol). I'm applying for a grooming Assistant position.

    This company consistantly posts for positions over and over. I have yet to know anyone that gets a call and they have loads of experience. What are they looking for?

    I found a job posted by Petco for a full-time sales associate in Greenville, NC. However, I was not aware that there was located here, unless it was fairly new so I used the store locator on the website to find an address and it told me the closest one to my zip code was in Rocky Mount, which is 45 minutes away! There's also a list of grand openings on the site, and Greenville was not listed there either. Maybe this is some kind of mistake?

    I'm quite interested in becoming a Training Instructor for Petco. One thing I'm afraid of is that if I do end up leaving before finishing the year that they ask you to commit to, they'll bill me with the charges of the training (Which is a couple thousand, from what I understand). Does anyone know anything about this?

    The position for an Operations Manager for the Boutiful UT location I can tell you is not avaliable. I inquired about the position the other day and spoke to the Operations Manager! He assured me the position was not open. Im not sure why Petco engages in this practice, but as a potential employee, it is very frustrating and frankly somewhat bizzare.

    Every business has it's own style. What is the office environment and culture like at Petco? Are people dressed in business casual, jeans and t-shirts, or full-on suits? Do folks get together for Friday happy hours and friendly get-togethers? What is a typical day in the life of an employee at Petco?

    so i noticed that the application wasnt letting me go past the first page where i enter in all my information about my name and username. so i called the tech support line and she said that it is doing this because there is more than one person with your name out there and you have to personalize your first name by putting your name (sara) then space ( ) then your middle name first initial (L). then it will be fine and let you go further hope i helped yall out there
