    I worked at Kriser's Natural Pet part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I’ve held many positions at Kriser’s in the 3 plus years I was there. This review is for my time as a bather. I started out as a part timer on the sales floor before moving in to the grooming room as a bather. I was a bather for about a year before Kriser’s offered to pay for my grooming certification! I had always thought about becoming a groomer just didn’t have the money to pay for the classes. But Kriser’s stepped in and paid for them.
    Kriser’s cares about its people and the pets. There’s lots of career options available you just gotta ask!
    Good hours and always the option to have more, at least in my store. The employee discount is amazing and my little doggies love it too ;)

    Cons

    Some customers are straight up impossible to deal with. Especially the bathing and grooming ones.
    Equipment broke down a couple times and it took a long time to get replacements.

    Advice to Management

    Bathers are important too. Equipment issues could be addressed faster

    Assistant Store Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Kriser's Natural Pet (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Seen a post online. Within a week received an email to meet with District Manager. I wasn't able to make the interview so I had to reschedule for a week later. The DM was willing to accommodate which was great. The interview was a bit non traditional as he was in street clothes while I came dressed up in a tie. I felt going in circles with some questions asked. Well, overall I feel that with my experience and the amount of money I was currently making that they weren't interested in me. Rather pay someone less with little experience but you will always be continuously be hiring new store managers at Krisers. I once did interview with Krisers long before when they started opening up stores here in the IL area. I was interviewed by someone in corporate recruiting over the phone which was a bad experience and got turned off by the company in a bad way. Did try at it again years later and they are still running around in circles LOL...
