    Pros

    Good Managers
    Good company to work for
    eventful job

    Cons

    Bad managers
    not enough hours
    expected to complete more than is possible given certain time limits

    Advice to Management

    Sometimes it's impossible to complete the tasks asked of the petcare department. Completely cleaning and vacuuming 20-30 tanks before 11? It's possible if thats the only thing you have to do, but impossible if you're the only person working and you have other opening responsibilities to do as well.


  2. Fun place to work!

    Pros

    This was such a fun job, besides me already loving animals to death it was great working with them. I had mostly great managers, one I did like except for a few details but overall liked management.
    -Interview process was great, they asked if there were any animals I was not comfortable handling and I said crickets (hate them). I guess most people say that because they sort of disregarded it, (all employes must be able to handle them) and figured I'd get used to it. Im so glad they did or else I wouldn't have gotten the job.

    Cons

    -Minimum wage (expected with retail)
    -Customers can have such certain stigmas about animals (hard to break).

    Advice to Management

    -Overall everything was great, but with time off it would be nice to let you know only two weeks ahead instead of three.
