"When I started at PetSmart, I was a temporary order fill associate. Since then, I worked my way up to a trainer! PetSmart has great values. Not only do we care about pets and their well-being, but we also care about our associates. Our leadership is great! The culture we have on every shift is absolutely fabulous... and I can say that for sure because I've been on every shift. We're a good time!"
