Pet Stylist in Sterling, VA
on March 19, 2021
I was employed for 13 yrs. with PetSmart. I loved my co-workers, my clients and my dogs! Only negative is no support from management. They promise to help you out, but don't. No discipline for people who do wrong, weekly.

Salon manager is a joke. Policies constantly change and favoritism is definitely played in the salon. BUT the animals are great and why I do what I do so it’s still worth it to me regardless.
Cashier/Sales Associate in Sunrise, FL
on October 16, 2021
It’s your basic cashier job so I mean it was pretty easy to do. You get to see lots of different animals that come through and talk to the customers about them, it’s pretty nice.
Pet Salon Manager in California
on October 15, 2021
There’s a strong urgency to “do the right thing”. Sometimes bad managers crop up, but that’s true of any retail job. Very safety-minded, both of people and pets in care.
Dog Trainer in Cheektowaga, NY
on October 15, 2021
I enjoyed working here as a dog trainer. I loved that I was able to keep busy and essentially make my own schedule. I'm not sure if that's the case in every PetSmart, but the one I worked for was wonderful.
