    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Hmmm...well, the benefits aren't bad and I like having the free wellness plans (until I started getting taxed on them).

    Cons

    Where the heck to start? Management is a JOKE and is more concerned about making their numbers than doing good for a pet. I feel like the business model that Banfield has created is AWFUL. The pay sucks and the hours make no sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue and hire people that actually have degrees in the field you are putting them in. Maybe start by hiring practice managers that know about not only the management side, but also the medical side...or you could start by hiring management that knows about even one of those things!

    I worked at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    good profit and loss, team management, business model, customer management experience
    only work here if you absolutely need a job, I needed a job

    Cons

    for practice managers, this is a retail job, not a "management" position
    much more work than the hourly rate pays
    very low hourly rate for a management position
    work volume is extreme and THIS JOB IS 24-7

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Banfield is a model that will not change. My advice was never accepted. They don't want your advice.
