Not worth it.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Tyngsboro, MA

ProsI loved the dogs, they are the reason I stayed as long as I did. Some of the people I worked with were great, and I miss seeing them. I loved the idea of the place, but needs more work.

ConsThere are an overwhelming amount of dogs in a room with a Daycamp Counselor at a time. I was in a room with 30 'big' dogs, and it was really unsafe. I felt like I had no control, and even though I asked for help no one helped. The management is more concerned with the money than the safety of the place for the dogs. I have to agree to other posts that the manager definitely has favorites, and makes it well known to the rest of the staff. There was a lot of talking behind people's backs (even done by the manager). There is usually an employee that quits there about every two weeks (from the time I spent there) and the main reason is because of the manager.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at records, and how many people have quit in the past year alone. Ask the former employees why they quit, and most will say because of the manager. Keep the groups of dogs smaller, and kick a dog out of camp if their behavior is out of control (even if it loses money). I really loved the dogs and some of the people, but for the reasons stated above, that's why I quit.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
