Pros: Encouraged me to find a better job
Cons: All about making money
I worked there for two years as a dog trainer. The ASM took every chance to let everyone know that he does not have any animals without legs and he knows nothing about dogs. He told me I was not to have any physical contact w/ the dogs or even correct them verbally, we were not allowed to make recommendations even those based on our training, poor pay, I was constantly chastised for not selling classes while I was stuck at the registers which was every hour on the job when I was not instructing a class. Also beware of the fundraisers! They tell you that most goes to local shelters, it's actually half; the other half is dispersed across the country, mostly to Petco Foundation admin and the managers are given a bonus for reaching their goal marks regardless of whether or not they worked on it themselves! Rude to customers and don't care about their employees or animals. Our GM refused several owner surrenders of puppies and rabbits because he didn't "want people to think of us as a shelter!"
