I have begun working as a cashier at PetSmart!
I have been there a few weeks now and I love it so much. I can’t remember the last time I came home from work happy because I enjoyed being at work. Seeing people bring their pets into the store and care so much about them, is inspiring and wonderful to see. These people have taken a creature and made it part of the family, as my family has done for years with all the pets we have had. Going into work makes me think about my baby girl Willow, all the time, but at the same time, it makes me happy to help others make sure they have as much time as possible with their pets.
I definitely needed a change of pace when it came to the places I was working, and I have always wanted to work at a PetSmart but never pushed for it in the past because I was pretty comfortable working at Dollarama. Well, the ease of Dollarama disappeared because of someone I worked with so I quit and moved on to the women’s clothing store, Ricki’s/Cleo’s. I found this job so stressful. I honestly don’t know how people make a career helping multiple people shop at the same time.
PetSmart is going to be a great change for me, and I am excited to be working there during the time I’m doing my accounting courses. As much as I can’t wait to be a certified accountant, I know I am going to enjoy every minute I spend at PetSmart.
