      Pros

      Family owned, and the company truly cares about animals. Lots of great opportunities to travel if you want to help set up stores or train. Lots of great community events you get to go to.

      Cons

      Company is growing quickly and has some growing pains in the communication department. The company also has new corporate leadership, and while smart and nice, they are starting to crack the whip a bit more on the sales side of things.

      Pros

      Decent training on animal nutrition, you get to see and play with lots of pets.

      Cons

      Physically demanding as they expect you to carry out all customers dog food purchases, anyone above a part time keyholder has far too many job responsibilities while also being expected to follow and "shop with" customers. Too much emphasis is placed on sales now.

      Job, not a career

      Pros

      It's fun to meet people's pets and you get a very good education pertaining to pets' health and management. If you are interested in pursuing a career with animals, this is a good place to start or to have on your resume while you pursue more serious options.

      Cons

      The pay is very low, especially considering how much associates are expected to know and do for their customers. There is very little chance of a promotion or a raise beyond 25 cents an hour. The most you will make here without a salary is about $15/hr. That's only if you become an assistant manager and there are very few openings. The stores are open 7 days a week, mostly 12 hours a day. You will have to give up your 9-5 schedule and be willing to work nights and weekends. Most full-time employees work 30-35 hours a week. Overtime is not an option.

      Pros

      Great atmosphere for animals lovers. Lots of opportunity for growth. Promoting from within the organization is strongly encouraged. Managers and Executive Management are readily available. Don't be surprised if the owners roll up their sleeves and help while visiting the various stores- very down to earth.

      Cons

      Probably not the best environment for non, pet lovers.

      Pros

      Co workers were very fun to work with along with upper management. It was neat learning about animal health, too.

      Cons

      Some of the items we were required to learn about had a whole lot of information to memorize, but gave us very little time to do it
