I worked at VCA full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

cannot list any because there aren't any

Cons

was promised would be treated as a "tenured" worker, i.e. vacation compensation etc, not true, continuing education not made available, peer elevated to supervisor position, when she clearly was favoring employees (her friends, hiring her cousin) upper managemat agreed not appropriate behavior but sided with her anyway, did not consider legitmate complaint on my part, probably a campaign to push out higher waged workers to get work done as cheaply as possible, they seem to have NO CONCERN FOR MAN OR BEAST, only care about the almighty dollar

Advice to Management

the veterinary business should be one of compassion first, you don't get it

    I have been working at VCA full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    middle management is cool. office space is nice.

    Cons

    this company make the employee pay most of the insurance premium! and the coverage is horrible. if you get sick you will pay 10,000 dollars out of your pocket because the policy covers barely anything. it's a joke!

    and they only have 10 holidays per year. and do not allow IT people to work from home. that is STUPID.

    Advice to Management

    open up your eyes and treat your talented employees with better benefit or they can always leave for a better benefit.

    I have been working at VCA part-time

    Pros

    Flexible schedule.
    Co-workers are very nice.
    Customers are mostly very nice.
    Facility is nice and well kept plus clean.

    Cons

    Pay, they start you at minimum wage and you will never receive a pay wage.
    Some customers are picky and slightly rude.
    Can be stressful at times but mostly enjoyable.

    Advice to Management

    Kennel techs do your hard grunt work and you need us so stop thinking of us as disposable. Pay what we are worth, you can't run the pet lodge without us, you wouldn't have people to feed patients, clean up after them, walk patients, do all the hospital laundry, do dishes, keep the hospital clean and sanitary without us. VCA needs kennel techs so start acting like you appreciate us.
