Interesting place to work, I learned a ton.
Senior Dog Trainor/Animal Specialist (Current Employee) – Totowa, NJ – October 1, 2015
A typical day at Petco has me reviewing my class schedule for the day, calling clients, ringing register, customer service, stocking out and caring for the stores animals. At this job I have learned a lot about multi-tasking, running a high volume store, trouble shooting and customer service, attention to detail, working with the public, time management and the best thing I have taken away from my time at Petco is all that I have learned about animals and caring for all types of species. I have earned my animal nutrition certification, canine and feline nutrition certifications, my dog training skill have been honed, I am a specialist in birds, reptiles, dogs, cats, small animals and aquatics. My management team and co-workers are great, we are like a family and everyone helps everyone else.The hardest part of my job at Petco would be when our CEO or higher up management come to do store visits and tensions run high and the store has to be perfect. The most enjoyable part is being able to educate clients about their pets and helping them solve any issues they may have with them. During dog training my favorite part is watching the dogs and their owners improve with every visit.
Spending time handling and learning about animals and their care needs, never a dull moment, fast passed
