I worked at Bosley's part-time (Less than a year)
Get to meet and interact with dogs
Discount (it's small, but it's a discount)
Relatively easy job (although management makes it more stressful than it should be)
No flexibility with hours
Understaffed, which creates problems with employees are sick or unable to work
Unreasonably high expectations
Management expects your whole life to be the store - they don't understand work/life balance
Advice to Management
Let your managers do their jobs and manage their staff and don't micromanage.
Be more understanding when employees become sick or unable to work (hey, life happens). Allow more flexibility with scheduling - very few people want to work ALL evenings or ALL morning shifts, with their days off scattered throughout the week. Don't expect one employee to always work Saturdays or Sundays (or worse yet, both!) - people have lives and you should want them to live them. Happy employees = good employees. If you're paying people minimum wage with hardly any chance of advancement, you can't expect them to make this store their entire lives.
I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Bosley's (Mission, BC (Canada)).
Was told to sit down, basic questions about past experience, what I can contribute to the company. Told about pay which was minimum wage, no commission or bonus. Conditions of workplace. Very straightforward, they were looking to hire and offered job on the spot. Didn't need references or anything else. Low hours specified.
