Fun at first, then the competition begins on how many puppies you can sell

Pros

Fun if you love animals, you get to interact with animals all day.

Cons

Once you've worked there about a week or so, they start to get very angry with you if you dont sell a puppy to every person that gets the puppy out to play with. You get disrespected and yelled at for not forcing sales of puppies on people. The management expects you to sale a puppy to anyone even if they don't seem that interested. They're all about the money.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't be so forceful and pushy in your puppy sales and respect your workers better.

    Owner/Operated stores. Fun environment but no opportunity.

    Pros

    Decent discount, animals are fun to handle, decent amount of responsibility, and the amount of ephasis on respecting animals is great.

    Cons

    Low wages, dead end job, not much experienced to be gained unless you get a promotion to a supervisor position

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dont focus so much on selling puppy's. The focus should be put on how to reach out to the community with services geared towards the animals they already own and the potential anaimls they want to buy.

    Pros

    fast paced, fun environment. always somthing to be done, and an oppurtunity to get familiar with different animals

    Cons

    long hours, low pay for the work, high turnover, and sometimes a lack of communication with employees from the management when it comes to new ideas. sale of sick animals from time to time, having to see some animals die slowly, spliting commissions more ways then they should be split.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    giving employees some heads up before making big decisions, also more structure when it comes to spliting commissions. a larger building would help keep the store from getting so crammed on busy days.
