    Getting a job at petco!! So stoked.
    Good thing I got to know the reptile specialist girl and assistant manager :) I'll be taking over for the specialist when she leaves early next month so I get to take care of the inverts and verts once I get the certification they have me get.

    Just thought I'd let you all know :)

    Congrats... The my local pet stores could use someone working for them that knows what they are doing.

    So, you get any discounts?

    One day huh? I love just being there, I'm strange though.

    The discount is nice and all but I won't be spending much there besides on crickets. Plus the specialist job pays...I think it was $13-$15 an hour up to $18 the longer you've been doing it. So it will be a great paying job for my age until I get all my Computer IT certs by summer so I can start making the big bank ~$50k-120k a year. 50k being the average starting salary for just one Microsoft certification in my field.
  9. Damn! I only make $10 an hour, and I've been working here almost two years!

    That would be awesome -- I'd teach everyone in the bug area everything they ever need to know about the emps. :D

    (I do that anyway when I'm there; I just don't get paid for it :rolleyes:)

  11. By "here" I meant the place I work . . . I don't work at Petco.

    "Here" = lab on-campus.

    I got hired at PetCo a week after I got hired at my current job. I get payed about 12.00/hr here so I stayed. Plus I work full time. I don't think petco would of had me work full time.

    They should give you free crickets. If you ask for them, I bet they will. Especially if you set up better breeder colonies for the store (cause lord knows the ones they have at the petco by me sucks).

    Right on! A lot of toy dogs w/ their hotties stroll in there. Not a bad place to work ;)
  19. Any hottie with a toy dog isn't worth ogling. :shame: Now, if she comes in with her Avicularia on her shoulder . . . ;)

    But congrats on the hire, Kevin!!
