At PetSmart, we strive to create an environment where every associate feels like they truly belong. At PetSmart, we believe belonging, diversity, equity & inclusion make us a stronger company. It’s why we place such a high value on the unique backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives of our associates, customers, and the communities where we live and work.
When we embrace and appreciate a wide range of people and perspectives, we create an environment where associates can do their best work, partners enjoy engaging with us, and pet parents have an unmatched customer experience.
We provide an equal opportunity for all associates and job applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, veteran status or other legally protected characteristics. We hire applicants and retain and evaluate associates based only on job-related factors such as their skill, performance, integrity and commitment to our goals. We are committed to providing reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities, both visible and invisible, during the job application process and throughout their career at PetSmart.
We value an inclusive and caring workplace where associates are engaged, feel psychologically safe, and can be their best selves.
