    Hi there! I have recently applied to Pets at Home for part time work and am to attend an assessment center, which will involve group activities and a short interview. I was wondering if anyone has gone though this process before or if anyone has any tips on what the interview will be like. I already have knowledge about domesticated animals. Also if there is anyone who works at Pets at Home could give me some advice.

    Any info will be most appriciated.
    Many thanks!

    i know this is an old thread,
    but i was just wondering how you applied, did you just give them your CV? and did you know they were hiring before or was it just chance?

    Hi there! I applied online!

    If you go here you can see the pets at home stores that are currently hiring people and you can apply online!

    I had the interview which was really fun (we had to put a rotastak hamster home together!). Annoyingly, the the store i applied to had to postpone the recrutment process due to the opening date changing, so i hope to hear something ater in the year!

    Best of luck!

    Bunny_biscuit posted this in 2008 and only posted on this entire site a total of 4 times, I doubt you will get a response.

    On another note, good luck!

    Pets at Home are sooo ****! I have a friend who worked in a holistic base dpet shop, and had an interview with Pets at Home, but said they basically want to reteach you what you already know. i.e my friend is HUGELY knowledgeable about small animals ..rabbits hamsters cavies.. and they wanted to reteach her their care.. but that is because the standards they have for care are often more 'commercial' than care based. although of course there are industry standards to meet.

    Dont let them think you're a know-it-all, show a passion for animals and a willingness to learn.. but if they think you already know better, they are less likely to hire. I mean.. they sell horrible horrible food for christs sake!
