Pros

Accomodating in scheduling, pleasant atmoshpere, terrific co-workers, great customers most of the time, fun pets, room for advancement, discounts in store including grooming and Banfield, pay can be better than minimum wage.

Cons

Work some weekends, night and holidays but are still able to schedule things to accomodate personal schedule. Long hours on your feet. Full time positions are hard to come by.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to the what each employee brings to the table. Don't leave a talented associate in a part time position because you can't see their potential. It is always better to promote from within. It builds loyalty and consistancy within the stores.

    Pros

    It appears they really care about their employees. Nice perks you can sign up for even if you are only part-time. Good raises to start off with for the 1st year. A lot of training videos that basically sum up everything you already know, but it is nice as a refresher on some things. A great chance to grow within the company. Management tends to be very helpful and realize that we're human and mistakes do happen so you aren't always afraid to be fired.

    Cons

    The rules can occasionally protect employees that shouldn't be there as long as they are. The training videos can be a hassle at times. Sometimes it seems like they change policies only to go back to how it was after a couple weeks/months.

    Advice to Management

    They do a pretty good job of trying to get reviews and advice from the employees. Keep it up.


  2. I've enjoyed my time here, but also ready to move on.

    Pros

    Great environment with the other employees, team atmosphere for the most part. Enjoy the ability to work multiple positions through out the store. They were very flexible with my schedule through schooling.

    Cons

    Middle management is usually very swamped with daily tasks/problems and sometimes fail to communicate pointers to associates to get ahead of those problems.
