  • I did! The training videos will go in one ear and out the other. You'll learn the most about the animals as you go about your day in the store.

  • Absolutely!

  • Yes. A good manager will make sure you get trained though.

  • I have no experience I just worked in retail and I got the job

  • Yes. Many of my coworkers know hardly nothing about animals. You learn as you go, but it helps to gave experience because customers expect you to know everything there is to know about every animal ever. Literally, customers expect you to be a veterinarian.

  • Yes, you have the opportunity to work here even if you don't have any prior knowledge of animal husbandry, that will come from working there. Petco offers every employee in store training modules that are part of your employment and continually updating. It is a plus but only if you have actual first hand experience that you have had to deal with, not just something that you read on the internet.

  • Possibly. Interviews are by groups, so best of group, if none with experience there is that chance......

  • Yes, it's a good place to go if you are starting your employment career, good place for high school students or anyone in need of employment.

  • You can apply and get hired without animal experience as long as you are 18 years of age or older

  • You probably can, but experience is always a plus.
