Cashier/Sales Associate/Stocker (Current Employee) – Darien, IL – October 29, 2013
Great place to work for students. Shift manager is very flexible with hours in consideration of school and personal life activities. The customers are great as well as my associate peers. The workplace has helped provide experience in all areas of the store along with pointers for future occupations.
Lead Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Rock Hill, SC – September 23, 2016
it really is the greatest place in the world to work. the coworkers I had were like family I love them and we became well acquainted with one another, the customers are the greatest there's never an unsatisfied customer, the store is perfect 100% of the time. I honestly love that job with a passion.
Stocker/Team Leader (Former Employee) – Savannah, GA – September 23, 2016
a typical day at work was very fast paced, could be stressful but days would always go by quickly.
I learned to groom dogs
Management could have been better
Co workers were great
Hardest part of job was frequent policy changes and poor upper management
Most enjoyable part was working with animals.
I left this job because of the changes that took place when petsmart sold the company. I did not like that the Care aspect of petsmart disappeared and that it was no longer about the pets and pet parents but strictly about money.
Head Stylist (Former Employee) – North Carolina – September 21, 2016
It's not a place you want to make a career . They make you feel stuck like you can't grow any further . I was a head stylist in the salon . It's rewarding dealing with your clients . All the "team" members are about themselves . There is no sense of safety or help .
Cashier, Sales Associate, Bather, Stocker (Former Employee) – Mililani Town, HI – September 18, 2016
My jobs at Petsmart were always fun! I loved meeting all the animals and working with them. My favorite job in Petsmart was the grooming salon. Some days were difficult due to difficult dogs but I always enjoyed meeting new people and getting to know their fur babies!
Order Fill/MOD (Current Employee) – Newnan, GA – September 18, 2016
My typical day is the same every day, I'm a MOD picker. Picking different pets foods or shampoos and fragrances. PetSmart is very big on production so we must meet a production average of 95% every week. the hardest part about this job is actually production and staying committed to making my goals for the week. also the MOD is a very tight space to work along with other employees you have to remain clean and also aware of others space. The most enjoyable part of this job is getting paid every week but its not something I plan to do for the rest of my life!!!
Professional Bather (Current Employee) – Tampa, FL – September 18, 2016
I liked working here, but the hours are not guaranteed and I was just expecting a nicer environment than what I was brought into. I did enjoy the job but its not something I wish to further and living paycheck to paycheck with a part time job while supporting two people is very hard.
Pet Hotel Associate (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – September 16, 2016
Working at PetSmart was a blast! Management was very friendly, my coworkers were very kind, and the job itself was a blast. I didn't work there long enough to be able to advance, but some of my coworkers were able to advance during the time I was there. I would recommend working here!
Playing with dogs, occasional free food, plenty of breaks
Pet Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Webster, NY – September 16, 2016
I worked here as a high school student. I was unimpressed with the management of the store, as they were mostly people whose only experience was working at petsmart. They had no leadership. But the pay was good, and the work was easy. It was always sad to watch the animals pass away.
Pet Trainer/Cashier (Former Employee) – Alhambra, CA – September 15, 2016
A typical day would consist of helping customers both on the sales floor and from the register and sometimes even out to their cars. As an employee there I learned more about team work and also got to see a store function as a family as well.
Cashier/Customer Service (Former Employee) – Caguas, PR – September 15, 2016
I truly loved working at PetSmart, especially with my #2188 (Caguas, PR) store members. Since day one the managers and other employees were helpful in every aspect, willing to explain in detail any work related question I had. In just a couple of months I learned so much, going from work system knowledge to answers to question of the pet parents.
Customer Service, Free Lunch (In celebration of some company achievement)
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Pooler, GA – September 15, 2016
I have learned many skills on how to make people and pets happier when they leave . Communication is the biggest skill i have learned to do better because you are always talking to customers and co-workers.
Professional Dog Bather (Current Employee) – West Rochester Hills, MI – September 14, 2016
I love working with animals, and this job is the perfect opportunity. Good pay, good tips, and decently great coworkers. However, when something goes wrong with one coworker, everyone tends to jump on the band wagon, which can make it hard to feel comfortable being there. But all in all, it is worth it, to see my customers smile at their newly washed and great smelling dog. It is my pride and joy to take care of their animals.
