I was let go from Whittier PetSmart because I had too many absences during my pregnancy, while I was first employed there. They let me go about a year and a half after my pregnancy.

Like someone else stated, it’s all about numbers. They do not value a single employee unless they’re teacher’s pet. It’s all about favoritism not just by store leadership, but by district leadership as well.

I believe PetSmart as a company isn’t bad at all. The store that I worked at was awful. The store manager wouldn’t come in and tell us that us doing our best still wasn’t good enough. They threatened to write us up over things that we literally could not control like customers rebooking their next appointment, because they had to have certain numbers or they would get yelled at. It’s not a fair place to work for. Upper management acts like they’ve never been on the bottom of the totem pole. The hours are inconsistent and you work much harder than what you get paid for.

Petsmart will fire you because a client threatened to call corporate. Just because they the client wants a free groom.Screw Petsmart, corporate needs to open their eyes. The employee matters. But not at Petsmart.

I had a very bad experience working with PetsMart, requested a vacation 5 months in advance and did not get it. All of the women in the salon were very rude and treat their bathers like doormats. Manager was very rude and disrespectful, anyone who would put up with it must not have very much self respect.
