I have been working at PetSmart part-time (less than an year)

Pros

Everyone is very nice and helpful. All employees are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of pet care. Working and taking care of animals is very fun, and you learn new things about them everyday.

Cons

Making sure a pet goes to a good home that will satisfy both the animal and the customer can be difficult.

    I worked at PetSmart part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is one of the best retail environments to work for- it is largely unaffected by holiday rushes and people with their pets are generally in a much better mood. You will get attention from tons of pets and get to pet so many doggies.

    Cons

    You will deal with poop. It's mandatory. Probably not a good idea to work here if you have allergies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Financial benefits to cross training for departments would be valuable. An employee that can fill in for any of 4 departments should be rewarded.
