Guest Experience Specialist in Sterling, VA

Petco was a great job. The pay was right for the work I was doing and the people were great. The only problem was the customers and hours. The days were long and it was very slow paced but that wasn’t a big issue.

Petco is kind of a soulless corporation that mostly selects for mediocre managers and is ruthless about understaffing and underpaying employees, and minimizing the amount of dignity you can have at work. Usual service worker stuff.But my experience with Vetco, which is the vaccine clinic, is that it tends to attract more empathetic individuals who have to work closely together as a team, which tends to develop a sense of community that blunts the horrors of service work.

If you’re looking for a management position don’t do it. They ask too much from leaders and the pay is poor. You can get a better job somewhere else with less headaches and more pay. Unless you want little to no work life balance this is not the job for you.
Aquatics Specialist in Sanford, FL

Think of how crazy a normal retail environment is, now add in that you're dealing with the sale and care of live animals. Very often, a store is full of people that don't know what they're talking about, and there's just 1 person that has proper information on animal protocol or care. When that one persom is gone, the store practically explodes. Customers are always entitled and rude, believing they have a right to buy any animal they want without any care as to how it will live. If you have a thick skin and enjoy a rush, it might be good for you, but I think this place eats most people alive.

It was very long hours with very little pay. It felt like there was no help in the store and everyone was running around with their head cut off. That us all.
