    Pros

    They have their own equipment, good customer relationships, easy to have repeat clients, tips

    Cons

    Faulty equipment, terrible vans with lots of repairs, no concern for human or animal safety, long hours (which are unpaid for), traffic, very low commission rate, virtually no incentives, no promotions, no upward mobility, virtually no benefits

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional and mature. Don't overwork the groomers and make them feel like they have to groom when it's 100 degrees in the back of that van. Learn better communication and hire a fleet manager to take care of the vans. That is not the groomers jobs to be mechanics!

    Pros

    Great to drive around and work by yourself. Pay is great except for a few slow times of the year. Tips are awesome if you work at the Naperville location. Must love dogs and cats and you will love this job.

    Cons

    Really hard on your body. I wouldn't recommend this job with any kind of pre-existing back, arm or wrist injuries. You won't make it. You have to be in shape. You don't really get breaks, lucky if you get to stop to go to the bathroom. Your day is from 8-5 and that doesn't include cleaning the van and doing paperwork in the morning. You have to have a lot of patience with the animals because they can sense when your in a bad mood and they will act worse.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your good employees or they will get burnt out.

    Pros

    Provides all needed equipment Uses Clippervac No experience needed to start

    Cons

    Commissions are incredibly unrealistic and unfair, owners take 75%!!! No benefits, you are a contractor No health insurance Vans are not ergonomic, tubs are situated way too low Franchised, so it depends on the owner and if they are not groomers they just can't understand the plight of a groomer Very little understanding of how to groom cats without taking precautions, cat bites can kill

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to experienced groomers Raise the tub Provide more protection for cat groomers
