Pros

Will train you to be a groomer, discount.

Cons

They have you do work that is not in your job title, picking up the slack of the managers. When its time for a review they might give you a new job title but the is no raise with it. The policy and freedom of dictatorship that the managers get is absolutely one sided.

Advice to Management

Set standard policy's and reviews with fair compensation for the hard workers and performers, otherwise you will lose all your good employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    flexible hours and schedule, 5 day work week, management pays attention, good employees to work with, if you love pets its a fun place to work...

    Cons

    pretty little starting pay and the raises if you even get one are nothing! they care too much for the numbers. they dont like making people full time because they dont want to pay or give the benefits. part time = 36 hours and no benefits!!!

    Advice to Management

    dont even think about it.
