Educational and rewarding
Companion Animal Leader (Current Employee) – Lady Lake, FL – May 29, 2017
A typical day revolves around me checking on the animals, making sure they are healthy and their habitats are set up correctly. I will give medications to any animals receiving some. I open the store and work on maintenance for habitats, check inventory, and assist guest. I also go about ordering and receiving animals, doing incident reports and checking supplies. I've learned many things working at Petco and working with all the different animals. I've learned how to properly care for a large variety of animals. I have learned a lot about presentation and educating guests on how to take care of their new pets. Management requires a lot of team work and communication. We work together very well to make sure all of the animals, employees, and guests are taken care of. The hardest part of the job is working with the general public. Educating them and getting past common misconceptions can be a daunting task. The most enjoyable part of the job is getting an animals its perfect forever home and hearing or seeing how well they are doing when their owner returns to the store.
