"Great ideas sometimes go awry"

Pet Detective (Former Employee)
Harrisburg, PA

ProsThe time required on shift is easy to do. You meet wonderful animal-loving people much of the time. Premium quality pet food. Great starting pay and incentives over time.

ConsIssue with company/regional reps who fail to understand that sometimes people 'want' to feed this food but must choose where to 'cut costs' in an out of control economy. So, 'breathing down' the employees neck to 'make new sales' is not cool. Thought the 'pet detective' concept got to be a bit brain-washy at it's own 'lingo speak', and I felt like a cult member using key phrases....

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease see 'cons' and if the various stores (Petsmart) have a steady sale record of Blue, then person must be doing their job OR have a special coupon to help close a deal. Something that can only be used at that time to help entice customer to make purchase. Also, allowing to work on a day when store is busy (but not a weekend) may also give opportunities. Biggest one, does company assist in providing 'sample' foods to local small rescue groups to help get pets started 'off right' with quality food and a way to keep Blue Buffalo in the new pet owners mind.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
