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.

I like most people wanted to work in pet stores to be able to care for animals. PetSmart takes excellent care of it's dry goods but the same cannot be side for its live animals. Store is also extraordinarily clique-y with no room for advancement.
