PetSmart is looking for passionate students to intern in one of our retail stores for the summer of 2014. If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to lead a store for a Fortune 400 retailer – now’s your chance to find out!
At PetSmart, we’re all about Total Lifetime Care for pets, and our retail stores help our customers take care of their family. Our stores are energetic and fast-paced; you will never have a dull day! One moment you may be providing a solution for a pet parent and the next you may be coaching an associate on how to keep the store clean and stocked. Our store associates are passionate about pets and people…they’re the “secret sauce” that keeps our stores operating.
Our Field Internship program is the perfect place to learn about a career in retail management and the uniqueness of a PetSmart store. You’ll spend ten weeks rotating through the different store departments and learning from the experts. Along the way, you’ll also learn about the culture that makes PetSmart a great place to work and make your mark with a business impact project.
