What is the salary for a grooming assistant at petco and what's it like to work there?

I applied for a job as a grooming assistant at petco and have already had my interview with the hiring manager and the salon manager they are very interested in hiring me and i am expecting a call back today. I have groomed my own pets and my dad even purchased a professional grooming kit for me. I'm an artist and I have a deep love for animals. so my question is- would this be the right job for me? what's the pay like and how is it to work for petco's grooming salon? Any assistance in answering these questions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!!!!!!!!

One of our clients has a grooming business and pays by the animal. He told me that a good groomer can bring in up to $60,000 per year, and the average is around $30,000 to $40,000. If you're going to be paid hourly, then it's probably closer to $20,000 or $25,000 annually.
