    I worked at The Pet Firm part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed this weekend job and the four-hour shifts were a 'perfect match' for my weekend availability! I embraced the friendly interactions with 'pet parents' and their 'family members' -'aka' pets- of all kinds and was supremely knowledgeable of my product and its benefits. I went above and beyond to make dietary recommendations to improve overall health through use of our products. My sales were exceedingly high and received many positive reviews from customers as well as the store associates at the store locations where I worked.

    Cons

    My immediate boss was very 'trite', unfriendly and outwardly condescending toward me for no apparent reason. In addition, never complimentary or appreciative for my hard work and efforts. I found this to be unprofessional. Not once in the years of my work did she ever go out of her way to meet me and I never received a raise or a review.

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement builds morale and reinforces employee contentment and commitment to a company.

    I worked at The Pet Firm (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is no best reason. The work WAS fun, if they let you do your job. Enjoyed meeting store management and personnel and working on my own.

    Cons

    Hourly pay not bad to start, but never give raises. Company tried to redo there online reporting system and failed miserably, then another company bought them out.

    Advice to Management

    Quit micromanaging. Reward good job performance and back your people.

    Pros

    meet wonderful pet parents, that appreciate knowledge and experience.

    Cons

    long driving distances, not paying on time. The last two pay periods have not been paid properly. For a month of long driving and then not being paid is very disappointing. I have done demo work for 20 years, this was the first to not pay as promised.

    Advice to Management

    get payroll straight if you want to retain good experienced help. No one, works for free and drives hundreds of miles for free. Not independents or employees.

    I have been working at The Pet Firm part-time

    Pros

    TPF Management is quick to respond and resolve any issues while you are at the location. Love my merchandising position with TPF. (:

    Cons

    Not enough hours available for the month. Have to find other work outside of TPF to pay the monthly bills. This merchandising position is only part time. ):

    Advice to Management

    To make the merchandise positions available to advance to the full time merchandising position so merchandisers do not have to look for other work outside of TPF. I love working for TPF and would love to merchandise exclusively for TPF full time.

    I worked at The Pet Firm part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you love pets you will be very comfortable working in an atmosphere you enjoy. You always get weekends off & you get set your own hours.

    Cons

    After years of employment I never received a raise. You are only reimbursed for part of your mileage & well below what the government pays per mile. There is a lot of time that you have to work off the clock that you are not reimbursed for.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees who are working for you out in the field every day. Compensate them fairly & put a more realistic time frame on the projects you want them to complete.
