    StarStarStarStarStar Current Bather/stylist assisstant in Milpitas, California

    By far the best aspect of the benefits is PTO. Employees start earning days off as soon as they start working. Full timers start with two weeks paid per year plus paid national holidays.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Dog groomer in Springfield, Pennsylvania

    You cannot get better benefits as a dog groomer, however there are blackout periods where you cannot use them around the holidays.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Pet Stylist in Pittsfield, Michigan

    Easy to set up 401k plan within 5 minutes or less, then go back when you have more time to look at the specific investment mix that best fits your goals. MetLife insurance is available. You can also get discounts for signing up for insurance to auto-deduct from your paycheck for easy budgeting. Vacation starts at 2 weeks for most entrepreneurs level positions then builds up an extra week every 5 years with the company. For Pet Stylists the vacation hourly rate is based on your average sales/hr for the few weeks previous so its best to take your longer vacations in Jan/Feb when the holiday rush is still on that average. There is also paid sick leave and discretionary time.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in San Francisco, California

    Time off is easy to schedule, simply 3 weeks in advance. Vacation builds up overtime in a well paced way. There are insurance benefits for full-time associates, not part-time. Employee discounts.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Greenville, North Carolina

    You do get a small employee discount. You don't get major benefits unless you work 40 hours. I didn't hear many people say great things about it though.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Manager in Chicago, Illinois

    Its not considered "maternity leave" it's short term disability. You don't get paid for the first two weeks! Who does that!? You get 66.67% of your pay. I had a C-section which is 8 weeks but only got paid for 6! This company is ridiculous. They could careless about their employees.
