if i go to the academy and sign the 2 year contract. the grooming salon manager said if i end up not liking it, i could do other parts of the store for the remainder of the contract such as cashiering or just bathing. so my question is....what about banfield the pet hospital. is that another option since they are inside of petsmart or are they totally seperate? if i am not happy grooming or cashiering, i would like to work for the banfield part. is this an option to finish up the 2 year contract?

honestly, so many people have left before their contract up. someone once left to go to petco, printed out a list of her clients and told them where she was going, my manager tried to get something done but corporate did nothing. an other one opened her own shop about 2 miles from the salon and nothing was done.

If you have Problems in the salon with getting along with one another it may be a human resource issue. No one should be harassed. pet smart should be a great atmosphere to work in, grooming is stressful enough. Any drama, unprofessional-ism and bad workmanship is not acceptable. It should be taken care of, cause it always gets worse if no one says anything. Corporate want every salon to be safe and successful. Evey salon should have a happy team with patience to get the job done daily! Happier Groomers= Happier pets and pet parents!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PetSmart has become more diligent about "going after" their training investment for people who break their contract. This is in line with the "Grow Services" portion of the mission statement.Also, they can sue you personally if you print out a client list. I don't advise it. Stick out your contract. Transfer stores or call your DM if you continue to be unhappy. As long as I have worked for PetSmart, I can tell you that calling the caresmart line usually has backfired on the caller. Your DM or human resources person (both listed on breakroom poster) are absolutely your best bets AFTER talking to your salon and store managers. Be a professional about it and follow chain of command. Also, the grooming salon is a dramatic place. Give it two weeks and see how you feel.

Hi I've been a groomer at pet smart for a year now and I have one year left on my contract. Unfortunately I can't stand this job anymore the envirment is awful, and I have allergies that seem to be getting worse and worse and I can't continue working there, it's affecting my health way to much. I am going to get a Drs note explains that I have these allergies and that I am unfit to work in this envirment anymore. Do you guys think they will still come after me for the money if present them with a Drs note. Also I can't find my copy of the contract would someone mind terribly sending me some pics of it or letting me know how I can get a hold of it so I can read it over see if I am gunna get sued thanks for your time guys.
