    I spoke to them at a career fair, then applied on the website, and was quickly given an interview. I went into their home office and have a fairly casual interview. I was given an internship on the spot!

    Short and simple, low intensity. They just wanted to assure that I understood the job requirements and then introduced me to what the training process would look like. It was easy.

    Dog Groomer Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    Everything seemed fine until one manager (of the 4 stores in my area) locked my application in for his store even though his location was not hiring and other locations were. The result is that I am essentially barred from seeking employment at any Petsmart store until my application expires or the manager chooses to release it. It took me 8 phone calls to even discover what had happened and HR on the corporate level was no help at all, as I was unable to even reach them. I am stuck waiting 3 months, if I even want to pursue employment with this company, which given my experience this far, is definitely doubtful. It just seems ludicrous to me that a manager can blackball you in this way in a supposedly professional company.

    Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at PetSmart.

    Interview

    Interview with the recruiter from LinkedIn was excellent. I was forwarded on to do a phone screen interview with a local store manager. A time was scheduled, time came and I waited and waited for my call. Nothing. Finally got correspondence back and the the store manager said they had a situation in their store and they forgot about it. So we rescheduled it again. Once again I was prepared and waiting, nothing again. Finally got correspondence again, the store manager forgot again. So we rescheduled again. Finally got the interview completed and the store manager forwarded me on to the next level and said I would be contacted back within a week by the district manager or a human resource representative. 2 weeks later nothing. My experience after dealing with the recruiter was very disappointing. Very unprofessional. Hopefully they treat employees, as well as any pets they deal with, better than potential employees.
