    Sales

    Sales (Former Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsNone. I found everyone from the customer service to the management to be rude and demeaning. Though only good thing was the cute dogs.

    ConsThey have shady business practices. When I asked about it I was told "oh well, it's not like the dogs can tell their owners." I also experienced more attitude there than at any other job that I have ever had!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet better business practices and actually care about employees and dogs

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    Disappointed and disheartened

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe dogs were great and they would get so happy when they saw you

    ConsThere are shady business practices and the management cares more about money then the dogs or customers. There was little consideration about employee safety and the coworkers were awful. People were verbally attacked daily and it's was hostile. There was a high turn over because of it. They would not promote from within unless you were friends with managment. There was favoritism and if you reported something expect to be verbally went after by coworkers if not written up by management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementActually follow your TLC motto and care about the dogs and customers. Get new front desk workers they were rude to customers and overall make it a better work environment.

    Very Disappointing

    Manager (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO

    ProsIf you genuinely love dogs you will enjoy the opportunity to meet many.

    ConsIf you love animals you will be disappointed in how they are cared for at the pet hotel located on Page. Poor management, deceitful business practices and a lack of genuine concern for the welfare of employees and the animals in their care. It's all about making money without concern for ethics, integrity or Best Practices.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreater profits can be earned by being a company that is trustworthy in a manner that earns the respect of customers and employees alike.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Disheartened Worker

    Cross-Trained (Former Employee) Ballwin, MO

    ProsBeing around dogs.
    Pretty flexible scheduling.

    ConsClique-like coworkers, you can tend to feel left out.
    Working most holidays while Customer Service and Grooming staff are off.
    Injuries are common, floors are often slick and dogs will pull you around harshly.
    Managers choose favorites, and typically the rest of the workers follow suit.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMaking sure that all Kennelwood locations are ran by people who are professional and not just there to "gossip" or take advantage of their power. Investigating more on how certain Kennelwood's are ran (show up without warning).

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
