Lead Petcare Specialist
Lead PetCare Specialist, PetSmart As the lead Petcare Specialist, it is my job not only to educate Pet Parents about the exotic animals' background and needs, but also to train new associates. This position requires attention to detail, ability to perform under pressure, ability to speak to and educate everyone from young children wanting a pet hamster to reptile enthusiasts interested in adopting scorpions, and the knowledge on how to medicate and care for sick animals. As a Lead, I am called on whenever anyone in the store has questions about animal behavior, physiology, habitat, or special needs. If I ever do not have an answer for someone, I am always more than excited to look up the question so that the pet parent and I can both gain new knowledge.
