Assistant Store Manager Operations (Former Employee) – Dublin, CA – 27 July 2013
Petsmart is a great company to work for. They really CARE about their associates and managers. At times it can be stressful but not all the time. It really makes a difference who your store manager is. I have worked for 3 different store managers and 2 out of the 3 were awesome. The third store manager was not a very good store manager. He was lazy and never kept his word. He would lie to you and always pawned his duties off to us. Overall I loved working for Petsmart. I just think they should really look at who is in management. I also feel like the DM should reach out to the other managers in the store to see how that particular store manager is performing. It's not always by the numbers.

PetCare/Salon/Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) – Port Coquitlam, BC – 20 February 2018
Came to work at petsmart Port coquitlam and it seemed that all the other associates just wanted to get paid and didn't care. When their lack of care impacted to lives of the animals, it really upset me, after bringing it to the attention of the manager he did nothing. I worked in the grooming salon as well, i worked hard, was not trained properly, but gained experience working there almost every day. Just recently two new bathers got hired and my hours are getting cut. This is very disappointing considering I worked there during the busiest part of the year (Christmas time) and picked up shifts constantly and my hours are still getting cut. There is a lack of care and respect from the managers to the associates, along with them cutting your hours for people that do not care about the animals.
got to work with cute animals
lack of care and respect from managers, lack of training, lack of hours
