lol petsmart wouldnt hire me, but they hired my friend who knew **** all about animals. I think they wanted people that would tell the public what they want, not whats best for the animals lol.

Anyways that was just my bad luck, never been to superpet so maybe they are different, good luck!

Well, for one, don't bother reading up. They will hire you even if you know nothing, they have such a high staff turnover that they don't care anymore.
All you need to be is a good salesman, as you will be working on commission and selling and promoting Hagen products.

I'd check into applying at a mom-and-pop type shop if you really want to care for and learn about herps. There are many good ones around. Sadly, the big chain stores are all about $$$.

Hey its a job working with animals cant be all that bad....but I would try to get on with a small pet store also, I could not work for a large chain just knowing that they buy wholesale imports....I have got the mom and pop store around here convinced nto only buying cb, now that they have advertised that they are bringing in more and more buisness!
