    I worked at VIP PetCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company pays a decent wage. Benefits are also good

    Cons

    Do yourself a favor and keep looking. Management at our office handled themselves worse than the employees did. Never there on time, late when they do decide to show up. She pits people against each other and plays favorites. The worst part is she's got higher ups fooled as well so when you complain it goes nowhere. She's totally fake. You will work long hours, you will drive long hours. No one stays here for very long!

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Rig Supervisor in Raleigh, NC

    I worked at VIP PetCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Work only on weekends -More work days available for good workers (may have changed ) -overall good people -paid overnight trips(still have to pay for food up front, reimbursed in next check ) -pay raise merit based -get to pet puppies

    Cons

    -Long hours (sometimes 12+ per day) -sometimes you don't get a lunch break -some vets are highly critical of new workers -Male employees more highly scrutinized. (keep your head low) -schedule can change at anytime (the difference of having to arrive by 8 am then being told to show up at 5 am with little notice) -as a rig sup you're expected to drive first if not all day. -alot of "paperwork" (done on Ipad) -sometimes very difficult to get pay raises.

    I have been working at VIP PetCare part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with animals Pay was ok Managers out of the office quite a bit, so on those days there was way less drama and gossiping

    Cons

    Management plays favorites, belittles employees, and gossips about employees to others Management creates hostile and uncomfortable work environment. Management also uses scare tactics and workplace bullying Inappropriate behavior in the workplace HR doesn’t properly address concerns within the workplace, and lots of policies are being ignored

    I worked at VIP PetCare part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They give you a lot of autonomy. You get to work with all kinds of animals.

    Cons

    Operations managers can be unexperienced and awful bosses. VIP also rewards clients’ bad behavior. I think over the years VIP is more focused on money rather than quality of their staff, clinics and services. They also stopped giving really great discounts and promos...because again, money is more important to them.

    Pros

    Better than not working at all.

    Cons

    Everything. No room for advancement. Management is terrible, openly pick favorites and don't care about the staff. Everyone likes to gossip. Don't work here if you're an actual adult looking for real work at a real company.
