Considering leaving because my SL is extremely rude ever since I made my first mistake. He caught me on my phone once and never forgave me when legit everyone else does it and he never catches them. Then he got mad at me for not informing him but informing my other pet care person that I was leaving for my 15. After that he finds reasons to pick on me and other employees that he dislikes. He finds reasons to get upset. I was doing Bettas with 2 other pet care people on the floor. He got enraged with me because I was in the back, doing bettas, and assumed if he needed help he'd get the other 2 Pet Care people. Unfortunately not, he just found this as a reason to get upset at me. Probably going to report him to HR. I admit I have made mistakes but he picks favorites so hard.

I shop regularly at the Newburgh, NY location. I have seen employees with multiple piercings and tattoos. Also, one employee who is a supervisor now I believe has dyed pink hair.

I was hired at 66. One associate has been with San Antonio petsmart 26 years, another 20, all of us seniors. Managers are very young but that's only because we seniors don't want the responsibility (we know better lol) that comes with the job. I like my job as cashier and adoption ambassador and enjoy the youngsters (my grand children's ages). We've a mix of 2 females per male (no senior males; don't know why that is?). It can be strenuous so you do have to be healthy with a good attitude. I work from 25-30 hrs a week. I detest the constant sales pressure but like all we elders, we just ignore the propaganda. When its no longer fun, we'll no longer be there; that's the beauty at our age. Happiness more important than money (10.00). I also used their counseling service which was HIGHLY efficient and helpful for some personal problems I was experiencing. At my location its good to be a senior. I am well respected! But then I am an excellent employee too!!!

The CEO of Petsmart needs to address the overabundance of poor store managers that they have employed. Store managers that make you feel guilty for calling off sick. Store managers that make you feel like you're never good enough. Store managers that care more about numbers than they do the welfare of their employees.

If you meet the criteria the store is looking for (availability, etc) then you should get a call, if you are wondering about an application, it never hurts to do a professional follow-up with a job you applied for online.
