Great way to acquire grooming training/education while getting paid!

Pet Groomer (Current Employee)

Pros50% commission once you finish your "internship", they send you to grooming academy (and comp gas or put you in a hotel, depending on your personal situation), and by being full time you get some pretty good benefits. Transferring is fairly easy as long as you're a reliable employee. There is a vet (Banfield) at most locations, so when the worst happens they can get seen immediately.

ConsYou work around the same few women 40 hours a week in a fairly small room. It will get catty. Management varies depending on your location. Old dogs may die during grooming and your clients will pass away eventually, and every groomer cuts a dog at some point. You deal with a lot of poop/pee. While the compensation CAN be very good (one groomer makes $75k a year) this is not the type of job that you want to do for the money.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
