Pay and Benefits suck. Good people.
Groomer (Current Employee) – Virgina – August 11, 2016
I've worked at two PetCo stores, and the people are great. Love my managers "(Leaders)" and it's an overall good environment at the stores I've worked at.
The training is redundant and unhelpful. You learn most everything on the job, and then the training tells you differently. It's not real world training.
As of August 2016, the pay is being "restructured" in grooming, making a job I love barely worth it anymore. I know dozens of people that quit IMMEDIATELY. It's hard, daunting work where, sometimes, you have to work thru your breaks, and PetCo should be ASHAMED of themselves for trying to pay sticks and stones. The pay is laughable. The benefits, you could enroll in by yourself if you're a low income individual.
Overall, PetCo is a horrible company with great people.
Great people. Animals
Laughable pay and benefits.
