    I worked at PetMeds full-time

    Pros

    As someone who has worked in the marketing team for several years the previous reviews were from individuals who were not a culture fit, so of course they are going to leave salty reviews. We had a change in leadership and in truth we have grown immensely because of it.

    If you're someone who wants to make contributions, build a solid foundation of experience at a unique company you will do well. The key is to never have the "that's not my job" attitude. We're all in this together.

    This is the type of company where you can learn a variety of aspects of the business and own the work you contribute.

    Cons

    None - this is a very stable company. Plus the new facility is amazing which seems to have increased overall morale

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

    Pros

    I can't think of any thing positive to say about this company

    Cons

    This is a dictatorship environment to work for. They micro manage everything you do. You are treated like kindergarderns. Upper managment treats you poorly. The training is the worst I have ever experienced. The CEO walks around when you see him with a scowl on his face. Doesn't even acknowledge your presence.

    Advice to Management

    Start to appreciate your employee's. Without them, you have nothing. Just because we answer phones, doesn't make any less valuable to the company. Would be nice to be treated with a little respect. You might also want to look at your pay scale. Very low

    I have been working at PetMeds full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family atmosphere, financially stable. Most management and many employees have been with this company for many many years. Upwards of ten years! It's not glamorous, but very profitable and stable with many benefits like health care.

    Cons

    Out ream is not for everyone. You have to be the right person and embrace the work and embrace the every-single-day grind. Some people get chewed up by it. Successful people thrive in that environment. If you work hard, listen and learn from the people who are trying to help you, and have a positive attitude, you will be successful.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at PetMeds full-time

    Pros

    Fun job interacting with customers & exchanging stories about our pets. Very busy which made the work day go by fast. Co-workers were really nice individuals. Casual dress.

    Cons

    Antiquated equipment, neglected facilities, poor management practices, no incentives for advancement, employees not valued - treated as disposable.

    Advice to Management

    Way too many things to list. None of which would be implemented as employees are considered expendable.

    I worked at PetMeds full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Not much sticks out as being positive. There isn't much company culture there.

    Cons

    It was a horrible experience working at Petmeds. The facilities are utterly disgusting, on a health hazard level. Zero employee incentives. Upper management turn over is very high. Was embarrassing to meet with vendors and potential clients there. Wouldn't recommend even interviewing, it's a waste of your time and a career killer.

    Advice to Management

    I have a lot but it wouldn't be appropriate.
