Pros

Everyone is very nice and helpful. All employees are extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of pet care. Working and taking care of animals is very fun, and you learn new things about them everyday.

Cons

Making sure a pet goes to a good home that will satisfy both the animal and the customer can be difficult.

    Pros

    get to work with animals, that's about it.

    Cons

    managers always telling you how to do the same thing differently. no one on the same page.employees called in on their days off - reason: they hire kids who call OUT if they have an invitation to a birthday party! 8.00 per hour is no big deal to them.

    Advice to Management

    get your managers all on the same page and get them to be training/working managers. no one respects a manager who isn't willing to help out. you'd find out an awful lot if you actually stayed on the floor and saw the same people dissing others and never doing their job.
