Always a productive workplace
Stock Associate (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 9 August 2018
PETSMART is like most other large companies in that the work is only as much fun as you put into it. If you like your co-workers, the work is pretty fun. Most of my managers were like-able and understood what it was like to be in a Stock Associate's shoes, and would regularly work with us on tasks instead of "ordering us around".
The shifts always started at 5am which was way too early, but for the store to be stocked by the time customers get there, that is probably the best way to do it. There was always more work to be done, no matter what department you worked in, and rarely a lack of shifts. Every now and then people would be asked to do an overnight shift for a special stock order, and they weren't as bad as one would think.
Overall, PETSMART is a pretty good place to work if you're looking for a low-level job during college or university, especially as a Stock Associate or Cashier.
