PostSubject: Petsmart Job Interview!!   Tue Jan 03, 2012 1:16 pm

So, when I went to petsmart the other day, there was a help wanted sign for a pet care associate.

I did the online application thing when I got home, and this morning I woke up to a phone call from petsmart.

The guy who called is someone I recognize from the store. We had had discussions over my flock and my love for budgies. He's the one interviewing me this afternoon.

I'm praying to the budgie god right now that I do get the job. I mean, there is no one in the world more qualified to take care of animals then me? And if I don't get that position, then I can still help people out with their pet needs. I know a lot of information about different types of pets.

I really hope I get this job! Wish me luck!

Yep. What they said! You're one of the most qualified animal people I know, luck won't even enter into the equation!

I'd hire you Smile You'll do GREAT in your interview!

I worked at PS right after college for a year in the Specialty Department...so caring for the small animals, avians, reptiles, and fish...then I got swayed away to work solely with avians at their now defunt competitor.

Just be careful you don't take too many pets home Wink I ended up with a Madagascar Iguana and Bearded dragon from there, and my first own white faced cockatiel from my avian co-worker who bred them.

Do they still have that big room in the middle to keep the birds warm? I recall the thunder Bay staff there had to wear winter vests there inside as it was so frigid!

THe discount will be nice for your supplies, and think of the amount of people YOU will be able to educate and help make the right decisions for their families!

Umm...CBT toys are better than theirs though Wink Just sayin'

Must be a budget push because the Petsmart by me is hiring avian/small animal associate help as well and I told Bryan to go down there for the same reason.

You'll do awesome. Keep us posted!

Thanks guys!

I seemed to "wow" them with my all around knowledge of animals.

They said they would get back to me by the end of the week. I'm praying to the budgie god that I get it!
