I have been working at VCA full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

It's a big company, so you are covered with all of you lunches and breaks.
You can transfer to other VCA's across the country if you move.
The discount is amazing if you have sick pets.

Cons

The pay isn't great. They expect a lot for a little. Hours can be hard to come by.

    Pros

    Pet discount is great at 75% off.

    Cons

    The rate of pay is terrible even for the amount of experience I had. There is not really an opportunity to move up in the company.

    I have been working at VCA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits, that's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Upper management thinks so highly of themselves they fail to remember they are also human beings. They expect you to do tasks that they simply don't want to do, expecting you to drop anything your doing at the drop of a hat. Deppressing environment.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe training would be a good idea for EVERYONE. Upper management needs to understand the world doesn't revolve around them and a team environment would be much more helpful. Also, hiring people who are just there for a check and don't really care cause the people who docare a lot more headache.
