"Not that great."
Department Manager, Retail Store:
Pros: They give you a very good amount of paid time off. The customers are great and if your lucky your team will be too.
Cons: There aren't many people of color who are amongst the higher up petco employees. You will almost always be passed up for a job you want because they will give it to someone from outside of the company. Health insurance is extremely expensive. If your not a brown noser then a lot of the higher ups won't like you.
