I worked at Dogtopia part-time for more than a year

Pros

The senior management teaches you more than any other place I have ever worked. We got to go to classes about management and learn way more than other places I worked at higher mgmt. You get to work around dogs all day too.

Cons

Benefits offered are just so-so but I guess that is because they still are a smaller company then other places I worked. If I got better benefits I might have been able to stay but I needed retirement savings and things like that.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel like I learned things that I will take on to other jobs. They were respectful even when I put in notice and I have had other places who were immediately crappy once I did so I feel they are professional. Most people who were not happy just seemed to not know what the work place is like out there which is why I saw some come back.

    I worked at Dogtopia

    Pros

    You get to work with dogs all day. If you love dogs, this is great.

    Cons

    Upper management is a bunch of liars and bullies. They (usually) pretend to be nice to your face, but then once your back is turned, or once you confront them, they show their true colors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow a soul of some sort. Then it would also be good if you grew a heart.

    Quit thinking employees are stupid.

    I worked at Dogtopia

    Pros

    I love dogs and working with them was my dream job. I loved being in a semi-relaxed job, doing something I loved.

    Cons

    The management was terrible. I loved my fellow co-workers but the owners had no business owning a company the dealt with dogs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Install some safety features to better protect the employees and the other dogs. There is no effective way (as of now) to stop a dog fight one broke out.
