    Pros

    Healthy Spot offers amazing opportunities to develop and grow not only with the focus on retail, salon or daycare, but also on the operational side of the company. Healthy Spot is growing so quickly that we are constantly promoting and developing our employees for bigger and better opportunities within the company and generally speaking. Healthy Spot is also always open and looking for new ways to improve their customer...

    Cons

    It's not really a con, because its something we are currently striving to improve--increasing our focus on employee engagement and HQ having a stronger presence in our stores.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good, hard work and remain open to change :)

    I have been working at Healthy Spot full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    First I was NOT bribed to make this review. Honest opinion right here. I have never worked for a company that puts as much time and effort into their employees than Healthy Spot. If you are a hard worker and are dedicated to inspiring healthier pet lifestyles, then I would definitely recommend as a job. They stick to their mission and believe in what they do- and that is contagious! My management has helped guide me...

    Cons

    The only realistic con I have of the company as a whole is the pay for in-store management. I feel with how hard we are pushed to be educated and above the curve in the pet food industry, we could be compensated just a little bit better. Again this is an amazing company with great opportunity, I just think the pay could be a little more competitive. But don't we all?

    Advice to Management

    Accountability for upper management

    I have been working at Healthy Spot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -you work with a bunch of adorable furbabies all day -you get to inspire people to give their pets the best possible -you learn so much about pet nutrition and about the pet industry

    Cons

    I kind of wish lunches were more than 30 minutes, at least 45, to give people who wanted the option of eating out a chance to get their food and not have less than 10 minutes to eat. Not all locations have things close by with or with out traffic. But its not THAT big of a deal but its something that does kind of suck -they dont really seem to take illness seriously and make it seem like youre the bad person if you have...

    Advice to Management

    So far so good! I do like the fact that the retail manager at my location is so down to earth and kind! I think theres other management that could maybe learn to be a little more empathetic.

    Pros

    Great benefits and knowledge regarding the different food we carry

    Cons

    We are under constant pressure daily. With high expectations in which the managers don't even meet. They keep a constant eye on the cameras and watch us as if we are entertainment to them. Their lack of communication and secrecy among each other is stressful because you are consistently concerned wether it's you who they are speaking about. You are easy replaced and it makes you feel useless or unworthy. And if you voice...

    I have been working at Healthy Spot full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    You get to work with some fun people. You also get to work with dogs a lot of the time.

    Cons

    Management does not know how to handle problems. It is a company in which the only way to move up is to become incredibly liked by manaagment.

    Advice to Management

    Take management training courses. Base promotions on sales.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Healthy Spot full-time

    Pros

    ZERO. All the pros you are reading are from employees that were bribed to give good reviews.

    Cons

    They will keep workers who literally do nothing and fire people who actually have a passion for the business that they are in. They are all about saving money.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the crappy workers and pay your hard workers the money they deserve. Stop keeping the horrible workers so you can save money! Going down the Petco and PetSmart route......

    I worked at Healthy Spot full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good experience, get to work with dogs, good employee discount, majority of staff is friendly, informational

    Cons

    High Pressure Environment, Strict and unnecessary protocol, poor management and communication between departments. Manager did not work daily or for a long enough shift and would make decisions without consulting the employees he’s managing. Manager took long vacations. Headquarter supervision was lacking and in the several months of employment, I met a representative from headquarters only once. The threat of being fired...

    Advice to Management

    Be more flexible with scheduling, understand how many employees are needed per task/shift. Give some type of warning before terminating employment. Ask your staff directly if making a decision that affects them, e.g. scheduling, and if correcting a staff member on a mistake, do it directly.
