Pros

You are around pets constantly which is a great thing for all the pet lovers out there. When you are in a horrible mood, you can brighten your day by taking out a conure or a ferret. The best part is really the 20 percent discount that you recieve, which is a blessing when you have tons of animals.

Cons

The payroll is extremely limited by far where the GM and ASMs are having to do the brunt of all the work. Being the highest paid stocker sounds nice in theory; however, that is also the problem...you are doing nothing but merchandise. There's not really a such thing as management when you are an assistant because you are constantly doing the "helps' " work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote more from within and quit letting politics desider our leaders.

    Pros

    working with the animals and personal pets that come into the store. working with some pretty good peole who care for the animals more then just the bottom line. good chance for advancement. the turn over rate is about normal for retail. the comunication from nsc to the field is pretty good and getting better, we are kept up to date as to what is going on.

    Cons

    goals that are at times not possible to achieve. the pay could be better for what the company expects for results and the hours you must put in. the benefits are about inline for what other companies offer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop sending so much backstock and let the replen system work as it should. when polling the system to set up the next delivery have it so it polls one day ahead of the delivery date instead of a week. that way the store recives what is needed and not have the store have to have so back stock on hand

    Pros

    The schedule is flexible if need be. If you actually work, you are more or less left alone, and the time goes by quickly.

    Cons

    the abhorrent waste of time in dealing with mountains of auto shipped back stock. Most of what is received is not what is needed. Plus, working with some fellow employees can be tedious when they do not pull their weight or are just slow on doing basic duties such as animal cleanliness. I also am not a fan of how the small animal department is set up, for larger animals like guinea pigs and rabbits, there is not enough space. Plus the amount of back stock for some animals is insane.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LESS BACKSTOCK
