|I would appreciate it if you all would not make sure broad generalizations about Petco employees.
I've worked at my store for 2 years. I'm the dog trainer and one of the groomers and I do my utmost to provide good information to the people that come into our store. Yes, I'm well aware that there are uninformed/uneducated employees at these stores who really are just trying to earn a paycheck but many of us are not. I care a lot about the well being of the animals I interact with and, honestly, would not recommend many of the products we carry. We are getting more and more good stuff though. Many of the stores now carry Nature's Variety raw (not ours though - boo!) and FreshPet.
Also, there used to be a Superpetz a couple miles down the road from our store and it was a miserable place to be. It stank, was full of sick animals and I remember frequently seeing groups of kittens being kept in bird cages. I'm not the type of person that says "Petco is the best and everyone else is terrible!" just because I work there, but this particular Superpetz was really run down and not a pleasant place to shop. But they did have a better selection of food than us, that's for sure!
I know I'm being overly sensitive about this, but please don't assume that because you had bad experiences with employees before that we're all brain-dead high school drop outs.
