Fun, but lack of career trajectory and direction.
Product Manager (Former Employee) – Lethbridge, AB – 20 April 2017
Petsmart is a typical pet store that brands itself as a pet-care retail experience where the staff and managers are knowledgeable and really want to help your pets.
In reality the company model is based off of aesthetics like being able to bring your dog into the store, and convincing the consumer to purchase unnecessary goods and services for their pet.
In terms of pets sold, Petsmart emphasizes selling animals with quick turnover to make profit, while trying to make up for their lack of welfare for their pets by running charities or adoption programs.
Great for part time students, etc, but bad for anyone hoping for a career that doesn't require selling out of morals and ethics and dignity.
Colorful working environment, pets
Oppressive management, backwards business model, lack of career trajectory.
