    Pros

    The staff here is amazing, all while because of the pandemic we are a little stressed at times, we work as a team and get through it. The hours I get are what I want, and they will do their best to make sure that it is what you want.

    Cons

    The customers can be a handful. Watching people impulse buy a pet and not always being able to express concern is the most heart wrenching. I went into this job to build experience working with animals and gaining more knowledge, like the sorts, and I cannot use it to help the customers out. Even though it's in the company's motto to do so. Some manager's will get upset if you leave the register to help a customer. I am a busy person, I used to be an assistant store manager, so I have to do something, not just stand at a register all the time. They try to be polite about it though or try to give you tasks nearby the register but even then I still get scolded or told to try and focus more on being near the register. It's an impossible battle to win. Just stay at the register and be nonchalant I guess.
