    Pros

    Paid better than most retail jobs. They had books and test that you could take to advance your knowledge about animals. It was a fun environment,since there were animals all around that you could take care of, show off, and sell.

    Cons

    They were bad about keeping updated clean buildings. When I started working there, you couldnt even walk in the back stock area. I cleaned it up and found stuff that was up to five years old. Typical retail store issues with crappy hours sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean every night!

    Pros

    Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Seriously bad upper management. Terrible training program.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Help employees when they ask for it. You would do much better listening and managing by making yourselves available and encouraging. Employees lose interest and are less productive when management is based on intimidation.
