Pros

Lots of opportunity for advancement, paid training, mentors, great people and working with animals. Good vacation plan, good retirement 401k plan.

Cons

Long hours at store level, very top-heavy so it sometimes takes unnecessarily long to get issues resolved.

Advice to Management

Always speak up! Your ideas do matter and are taken into consideration. Also, make sure your the majority of your staff is promotable!

    Pros

    The people to work with.

    Cons

    Crappy pay, smaller stores. Never get any sort of incentive to do and maintain a good job. Favoritism is ridiculous at some locations. General Lack of respect for the associates who earn the bonuses for the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees make happy customers....so why not make the employees happy by paying them more than minimum wage?


  2. been there for 14 years now. love my job.

    Pros

    i get to work with animals, and help people. it can be fun, but its definitely hard work!

    Cons

    they pay is decent for a retail store, we have a great management team. they offer 401K and medical. but its terrible insurance and the premiums are ridiculous!! especially if you have a family. probably the only bad thing about working there.

    Advice to Management

    offer better medical benefits to employess after 10 years. they have earned it!!!
