yeah, they are inside the PetSmart stores. you have to get a background check if you want to work as a pet care specialist in a PetsHotel, cause it's a pretty serious job, you have to be good, any small thing wrong you do and you will probably be terminated. but probably rewarding

If you love pets and don't mind the responsibility of providing care, socialization and playtime, then you'll probably find it rewarding. However, it is alot of hard and sometimes dirty work! Pet safety is a serious issue there; you have to take a pet safety certification exam before you can even start handling the pets in daycare and boarding..you also get re-tested annually. IMHO, the pay is rather low for the nature of the job..but associates do get pretty good benefits- even those that are only PT.

The hotel pay is better than the store I hear. Starting parttime is usually 7.50an hour I believe.
Pet Care Specialist is the one where you walk dogs, clean rooms, do doggie day camp( human torture).
Over Night Pet Care Specialist you do kinda the same but no camp and you get a lot more accomplished.
Guest Service associates help Pet parents and make reservations, check in/oout dogs.
