Pros

I love petcos vision, they truly do care for animals

Cons

I think they could pay a lot better more fairly, be consistent with what all of their stores look like, better pos equipment

Advice to Management

Please pay your top performers better, compare to others in same kind of work position

    Pros

    Great quality of life. Fun atmosphere with a variety of daily challenges.

    Cons

    Senior leadership out of touch with the day to day operations at the store level. Attitude of what can you do to improve rather than how can we help you succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Increase advertising to compete with our direct competitor. We are virtually unknown and they are on TV all of the time. We are proud of the job we do and it is disheartening to constantly see our competition publicly grabbing for market share.
