Kennel Tech aka Pet Care Specialist...

Kennel Tech (Current Employee)
Tulsa, OK

ProsFlexible schedule.
Co-workers are very nice.
Customers are mostly very nice.
Facility is nice and well kept plus clean.

ConsPay, they start you at minimum wage and you will never receive a pay wage.
Some customers are picky and slightly rude.
Can be stressful at times but mostly enjoyable.

Advice to Senior ManagementKennel techs do your hard grunt work and you need us so stop thinking of us as disposable. Pay what we are worth, you can't run the pet lodge without us, you wouldn't have people to feed patients, clean up after them, walk patients, do all the hospital laundry, do dishes, keep the hospital clean and sanitary without us. VCA needs kennel techs so start acting like you appreciate us.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
