Pros

Working around people who genuinely care for the animals and their jobs, and the customers.
Rewarding helping people and their pets, and selling people pets which they love for a long time to come.
Learn a lot through training and working.
Don't get bored with so many aspects of the store.

Cons

Some early morning shifts required, and necessary for some staff to work on bank holidays including Christmas Day, New Years Day etc., as the animals need care.
A lot of training and learning involved, but it is rewarding.

    Good atmosphere generally, with the odd letdown

    Pros

    Pets at Home has a good training programme, average wage for the role and offers opportunities to progress - but only if you push matters.

    Cons

    Management could be overly concerned with customer satisfaction and avoiding bad reviews to the point of alienating staff members. A good atmosphere generally but, I believe, let down by the absence of teamwork from some managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make employees aware of higher levels of communication; encourage interaction between stores?
