    I worked at Dr. Boyd's Pet Resort (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with dogs and cats. Nice facility
    Fun type of job. The love from furry friends.

    Cons

    Awesome place but pay is horrible. Some employees get higher pay to do the same job, even when you have same or more skills. Even when you try your best, they will always find something wrong about you. Some small selected group (depending on who they like or not) get all the raises and promotions and the appreciation. You must beg for a raise or promotion. If you are too good it means a threat to them and wont let you get in any higher position. The managers culture is: you challenge them,children and they will get rid of you. Don't buy into the reprogramming , and you are out. No AC or heater in the back of facility, only fans. Dogs and employees either freeze or burn. You apply for one position but they put you to do whatever and everything and for the same pay.

    Advice to Management

    This could be a great place to work at but they MUST get rid of the managers and assistant managers and hire competent ones that actually KNOW how to deal with issues and employees. Lacks of consistent norms and protocols. Some safety issues are not addressed. A HUGE and constant employee turnover that even clients can notice. They call themselves a TEAM, a family. IT IS NOT. The resort owners have a truly great vision and mission statements but they MUST get more involved in it , listen to the staff, and they need to realize that their managers need to be less petulant children and more understanding, roll model ones.
