Dog Groomer (Current Employee) –  Toledo, OHJune 16, 2018
Petco is a great start when looking to get into the career of dog grooming. They offer to train you even if you don't have experience, and offer the tools to do so. You work with so many great people that want you to succeed in life, however, the pay makes it hard to do so. With the pay change being tier based its now very hard to make commission if your store does not have the business.
Pros
Pto, Discounts, Great people
Cons
Bad pay

Grooming Salon Manager/ Groomer (Former Employee) –  Monroeville, PAJune 15, 2018
A typical day at work included being overbooked and underpaid. I learned how to manage a salon but my ideas were never utilized to their full potential. The workplace culture included hiring under trained and poor workers. The hardest part of my job was not getting paid or rewarded for my hard work and efforts or having to turn away a perfectly good client for dumb reasons. The most enjoyable part of my job was working with the animals in general.
Pros
Good benefits
Cons
Sometimes no breaks
