    I worked at VCA Antech full-time (More than 5 years)


    The other employees I worked with were amazing, very close family. The discounts are out of this world awesome if you are a full time employee. Also would get free samples from companies such as pet food, heartworm and flea preventions as well as various vac merch.


    The management is horrible. The team leaders fought all the time in front of employees and sometimes in ear shot of clients. They changed their polices on how they wanted things done all the time and you would be reprimanded at the smallest of things like not capitolizing a letter. I'm not joking. Since I was let go from my job the employees who I worked with and thought I was friends with now avoid me like the plague. I have a feeling that management said some less than favorable things about why I left. Being there for 5+ years leaves you with nothing and trying to find another job in a different field other than veterinary is extremely hard because employers think that all you did was play with animals all day. But that's not the case. I regret working there but I also grew from it so I guess there's something that came out from that. With as much money that the hospital made our compensation was atrocious. We would have several clients that came in and drop a thousand dollars or more and that would be more than I made in a month. Was there over 5 years and never made a dollar more per hour than what I did when I started. Don't get excited when the yearly reviews and raises come around.

    Client Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reno, NV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VCA Antech (Reno, NV).


    I filled out an application the day the job was posted. I went in the following day with a resume and to introduce myself in person. The hiring manager asked me a few questions regarding my availability and told me to expect a phone call soon for a formal interview. A week passed and I didn't receive a call, so I called them. It was the weekend, so the hiring manager was not in. The lady who answered the phone took my name and number, but also told me to try again on Monday. Monday came and I called during the hiring managers lunch break. The lady again took my name and number and told me she would inform her that I had called. That was almost a week and a half ago. It's been a total of 3 weeks since I went in person. This says a lot about the company.
