    Pros

    This is one of the best retail environments to work for- it is largely unaffected by holiday rushes and people with their pets are generally in a much better mood. You will get attention from tons of pets and get to pet so many doggies.

    Cons

    You will deal with poop. It's mandatory. Probably not a good idea to work here if you have allergies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Financial benefits to cross training for departments would be valuable. An employee that can fill in for any of 4 departments should be rewarded.

    Pros

    get to work with animals, that's about it.

    Cons

    managers always telling you how to do the same thing differently. no one on the same page.employees called in on their days off - reason: they hire kids who call OUT if they have an invitation to a birthday party! 8.00 per hour is no big deal to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get your managers all on the same page and get them to be training/working managers. no one respects a manager who isn't willing to help out. you'd find out an awful lot if you actually stayed on the floor and saw the same people dissing others and never doing their job.
