Cash/Core/Pet Care Associate (Current Employee) – Abbotsford, BC – 15 September 2013
Definitely a fun job if you love animals.
There's a lot of different jobs you can do so there is something for everyone (stocking, grooming, training, customer service, working with the pets for sale, etc.)
The people I worked with were great and we all got along really well.
Management was nice enough, but completely moronic. Couldn't manage schedules or allocate hours properly. Couldn't reprimand employees when they broke company policy. Did nothing about the rampant theft at my store except complain.
Wages were pretty average. Barely above minimum, sliiiiight raise after about a year.
Overall not a bad place to work, but be prepared to deal with managers who are legitimately so stupid you pity them.
Assistant Store Manager (Current Employee) – Kanata, ON – 16 March 2018
Petsmart is a great place to work if you want to earn extra money. It's hard to advance unless some one else "leaves". Some of the management styles are completely different from store to store. Some manage very well while others let everyone else "manage" the job without learning how themselves.
Overall if you do your job on time and well, you will be fine.

Managers that transfer to other stores expecting it to run the same way.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Ottawa, ON – 14 March 2018
I was a cashier for just over a year. I loved my co-workers. it's your average cashier job. You are asked to do additional tasks, such as help with pricing, stock, etc. It was always fun giving a dog a treat at the cashier. It gave decent hours for part-time job.
This job went complete downhill when your job depended on email-capture, no matter how hard you tried. The schedule never came out 2 weeks in advanced, however, management was really good with time off.
The SL at my location was just rude to everyone, treating them as her slaves and not as people. She had double standards and treated you like garbage when you submitted resignation. However, the rest of the management was caring.
