Understaffed and overbooked

Veterinary Assistant (Current Employee)

I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital full-time for less than a year

ProsThere's a lot of security in working for Banfield. You're guaranteed hours, benefits, and health care for you pets. There are many opportunities to move up in the company and there is almost a Banfield everywhere.

ConsBanfield doesn't seem concerned with burning their staff out. They push for so many pets to be seen but aren't provided provisions for adequate staffing. I hate how much they make us push for unnecessary products and services with clients and that sometimes strains the client relationship. The hours worked are ridiculous. Working an 11-12 hour shift has become normal to me.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease put more care into Staff! Having a team full of crabby, burned out, over-worked people is ultimately not best for clients and patients and they aren't given the best experience they could have. We need more staff to help take care of the 10 billion responsibilities that are required of us.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
