    I have been working at Kennelwood Pet Resorts full-time

    Pros

    Hard work and long hours but goes by really fast because you're so busy. Love my coworkers and the animals

    Cons

    Some coworkers don't realize how great they have it. They take their job for granted. My passion is working with animals and it took me a long time to get a job in this field because I had no prior experience. I would give anything for this company so if your not here for the right intentions then you should find another employer.

    Advice to Management

    My management is great, we hold meetings and we actually talk about issues and ways to better handle them


  6. "Get to work with dogs and cats"

    Pros

    The person that interviewed me made it clear about what the job is, expectations and what my hourly pay would be. I get to work with dogs and cats.

    Cons

    It's hard work but the time goes fast. Lots of cleaning. Co-workers complain a lot. I don't get it. They should find another job.

    "Could be better"

    I have been working at Kennelwood Pet Resorts part-time

    Pros

    Flexible hours, 401(k), benefits, PTO, fun atmosphere.

    Cons

    Low pay for hourly employees. Stressful at times. Terrible PTO for part time employees. Sometimes there is a very negative attitude among management, giving the rest of the employees a bad feel.

    Advice to Management

    Give reasonable PTO to your part time employees. Three days a year in unacceptable. Increase hourly employees pay from minimum wage. Many of your employees bust their butts!

    I worked at Kennelwood Pet Resorts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The dogs were so awesome. I loved going to work everyday to see the different dog personalities.

    Cons

    Racism
    Management
    Pay Rate
    Work Schedule
    Co Workers
    No Promotions

    Advice to Management

    Pay employees what they are worth
    Promote more people of color to work in corporate office
    I had reported to my manager at the page and Lindbergh location acts of harassment and racism and she did nothing about it. She was the reason that I left in 2015 due to her acts of racism towards me and a few other people of color

    Pros

    build relationships with the pets. watch all the frequent clients pets grow up and take care of them while the owners are away. few great co workers that make things more enjoyable.

    Cons

    owner don't actually know the people caring for their pets. low pay for demand of work. high employee turn over rate. low budgets, poor maintenance, low staffing, high demands low rewards. no advancements or raises. poor management help- they only help customer service and none of the other departments get managed they way they needed to be.

    I worked at Kennelwood Pet Resorts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my coworkers, and you have the ability to bring your dog to work with you (unless you have a pit bull)

    Cons

    corporate office does not care about store employees (good luck if you have a medical emergency before FMLA kicks in) despite focus on "Trust, Commitment, Loving Care", concerns are never addressed by management, profits are stressed and focused on instead of quality and level of care for animals, constant turn over of employees is a frustrating environment to work in, pit bull ban is misguided when stores accept aggressive dogs so long as they don't have a "pit bull" look. Seriously only accept a job here as a last resort
