A company that is quickly going down the drain.
When I started working at Petsmart in 2010, I was enamored by the company ideals. The store genuinely cared about customer needs, the management treated employees well, and the company knew the key to success was customer satisfaction, not cheap sales gimmicks. As time went on, however, I noticed a change in the dynamic of the store. Instead of being about keeping customers happy, the emphasis changed to badgering them with sales. Unfortunately, the store turned into a numbers game, and I feel the employees and customers suffered because of it. Instead of cheerily getting customers out in a hassle-free environment, cashiers are required to get their email addresses (which is akin to pulling teeth for some of these people), then push specific items that they didn't need, then add something else to their sale. While this is happening, lines would build and there would almost never be anything to help ameliorate the situation of increasingly dissatisfied customers.
All of this would have been perhaps less rage inducing if there was any incentive to go along with this charade. Alas, it took me four years to even get a 75 cent wage increase, despite my always stellar employee reviews. With the wages I received, I could barely afford the gas I used to get there, let alone anything else. If you're trying to advance in the company, forget it. They will cross-train you out of desperation, but they will never actually promote you.
That's not to say the situation is all doom and gloom. I've found the store management to be fair more often than not, and requesting days off is a relatively simple process. The crew is a good crew, although the nature of the company has created a perfect storm of a rotating door of team members.
