One of the Worst Jobs I Have Ever Had

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Prairie View, IL

I worked at Best Friends Pet Care part-time

Pros-Some of the women I worked with were great people who deserved more respect and more money
-Seeing all of the different breeds of dogs that came in was really awesome

Cons-Hours were terrible. We were expected to work 9+ hour shifts with barely one break and absolutely no sitting. "Part-Time" employees were scheduled sometimes for over 50+ hours in one week and would receive no benefits or overtime
- I was so saddened by the conditions of this place, I would never bring my own animal there, the rooms were disgusting and the place smelled terrible
-The computer operating system was unnecessarily complicated and needed updating
-Actually, the entire building needed updating and maintenance

Advice to Senior ManagementThe reason you have such a high employee turnover rate is because of poor pay and terrible hours. Hire on more people, be more approachable, listen to your employees, and do something about your poor animal and working conditions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Not worth it.

I worked at Best Friends Pet Care part-time


Pros: I loved the dogs, they are the reason I stayed as long as I did. Some of the people I… Cons: There are an overwhelming amount of dogs in a room with a Daycamp Counselor at a time. I was in a room with 30 'big'… Advice to Senior Management: Take a look at records, and how many people have quit in the past year alone. Ask the former employees why they quit, and most… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

The people who work there are very friendly but the training and pay are sub par.
