    Pros:
    -pay is good for a pet store
    -get to help others give their pets the best
    -play with pups that come in

    Cons

    Cons:
    -upper mgnt can have unrealistic expectations
    -the owner is very old fashion and not willing to jump into the 21st century

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like if the company as a whole would jump into this century and let go of old fashion ideas, turn over would not be so high.

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in Nashville, TN

    Pros

    A good place to work if you like pets and people enough to put up with this place.
    Co-workers are friendly

    Cons

    Very little pay for what they want you to do
    Having to hover over the customer makes peoples shopping experience very awkward
    Having to carry out a grown mans 5lb bag of dog food
    Having to go out during any amount of rain and walk people to the door with an umbrella while you are getting soaked.
    Half hour unpaid lunches
    The insurance is terrible
    There is no 401k
    No sick time
    Owner and upper management have unrealistic goals about sales
    They do not pay overtime
    Extemely stressful

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you really want to meet your extremely high sales goals you should have more employess on the floor and offer commision. All of your employess are constantly worried about getting fired due to the customer service goals you put in place.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you love pets and want to encourage owners to feed and provide supplies of a natural/holistic variety to their animals. Management encourages employee learning in regards to products.

    Cons

    Part time employees were unable to receive enough hours to compensate the small hourly salary. Owner/Senior management was at times unrealistic in their expectations of employees sales and quotas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If management is intent on employees meeting high sales quotas there should be more training in this area. Especially for this with no previous background in this area.
