Getting to play and love on dogs all day.
Job is fairly physical re-directing dogs and standing on your feet all shift. Pay could be higher, but we do get tips each month as well.
I have worked in the veterinary field for 20 years as an RVT. I have worked GP/ER/holistic/PT and I have fulfilled many roles from starting out as a student RVT to practice manager. I have worked for... private hospitals as well as corporations. I will say that my experience with VCA has been better than I imagined. VCA gave me the opportunity to continue to grow in the veterinary industry when I felt that I was stuck. They provide RVTs with different paths within our industry and value our roles and knowledge. I get to work with field team leaders and hearing how they work with and for their teams lets me know I work for the right company. The support I have personally received has been beyond what I have ever received at previous companies. The changes I see the company making to be better let me know I am in the right place. It is the people within a company that is important and we have compassionate, helpful, and supportive people throughout the company that truly care about their teams.
I don't feel there are cons that are specific to VCA but more just the veterinary field in general.
