    Pros

    The office team (Chicago location) is always available to help you while you are out in the field. They check-in on your well being and are really understanding of travel issues, dealing with different dog and cat personalities, time off needed, and general inquiries. Great communication.

    Cons

    Travel time is not compensated for and it can really add up! Sometimes it felt like I am always on call, hard to make enough money to take any days off, burnout was always immanent.

    Pros

    I loved working with dogs, cats and other house pets. Co-workers, boss and clients were amazing! I loved getting extra exercise, kisses and cuddles from pups. I also loved seeing this job from the inside. Not only did I love working for them they are the only ones I would trust with my home and pets. I liked that you're employee not a contractor like other companies.

    Cons

    Not being paid for milage.

    Pros

    They pay the most for house sitting compared to any other dog walking company I have worked with. And most of the management is nice.

    Cons

    You make no money. It’s $6 every twenty five minute walk but that doesn’t include your transportation time and the travel time to get the keys. Which you have to grab new keys at least every day or every other day. It’s almost impossible to get a full schedule unless you have a car. But the parking situation is always a struggle, so if your looking for 15 minutes for parking you don’t get paid for that. Plus you don’t get reimbursement for wear and tear/gas for the car. So you maybe will make $8-9 an hour if you are lucky. And most of the time you are only working a full schedule for 4 hours. Which is spread out throughout the day. It is also frustrating that they charge a decent amount towards the customer and yet the walkers make no money. So if you want this as your full time job, I do not recommend it.
