PetSmart is a good place to start when looking for that first job. A typical day at work consists of helping customer find the best products for their pets, interacting with all kinds of animals (big and small), helping out in the fish department(if asked), and of course cleaning up a few "oopsies" here and there. Despite having to clean some urine or feces once or twice per day, it was a great family and work environment. Its a great place to learn the basic work fundamentals such as team work, good customer service, time management, and multitasking. The managers were all great to work with as well as co-workers, they all stem from different backgrounds so you learn a lot about respecting others and accepting cultural differences. The hardest part of the job was acquiring more hours, there was a large amount of employees which meant you'd have a smaller amount of hours unless you were a groomer and or a trainer. The most enjoyable aspect of PetSmart is interacting with the animals as well as all sorts of intriguing customers.
