I would love to work at PetCo but I cant seem to get past to the application part. I live in Twin falls for school and need a part time job. I have worked retail at macys before and I can provide professional and excellent customer service. I would love to know more!

i believe you have to be 18 to work there, but it may be 16. i dont remember anyone under 18 who worked at my store. ylou have to apply online. they do not do in person applications anymore. be prepared to fill it out for a while, it takes like a half hour to do. once you submit it, call the store you applied at the next day and talk to the store manager. tell him/her you applied online and wanted to know if got through, etc.

I once applied to Petco under a state retraining program. I went in to apply for the application with another member of the retraining group who had severe back problems. She got the job but I was told that I failed the "personality test"- one of those computerized tests that can make or break your interview and/or experience. These tests confound me, as I try to be as honest and consistent as possible. Eventually I got the job (due to the program director's pressure) but quit because I got a better paying job elsewhere. It is extremely physical work.

I enjoyed working as a pet food demonstrator for Nutro products, though. Giving away free samples and doing light selling for 4 hours in pet stores was fun.

Good luck!

They've got some sort of bug in their online system. I've tried multiple times with multiple browsers, and keep getting an "invalid session" message. I finally contacted them and they advised me to go to the individual store I wanted to apply to and get a hard copy application. Would be nice if they would just fix the bug. Doesn't make them look very good!

Here's a tip, have you tried going to Indeed.com? It worked for me.
