Very exciting, getting to learn more about animal nature, and life style, learning more about pet nutrients and different kind of medications... I learnt more and new things.... working at Absolute pets was a great experience

good if you are passionate about animals

pay is not a wage you can live on and the job is stressful most of the time. The animals and regular clients make it worth it. management can sometimes be a bit unfair and not everyone is treated equally but this is not true for every single store.

Pros

good clients, interaction with animals

Cons

sometimes management is unfair, salary

Draining workplace

The working hours are fine, the company does not have any benefits for employees, they don't care about their workers, draining daily work, whenever you get injured at work you have to take yourself to the doctor. Management is dodgy, you pay for uniform until you leave the company.

Pros

Commission

Cons

Packing heavy things, with no medical aid benefits from the employer

Fun in the workplace

a typical day at the store is basically come in clean, make orders for the day, open the store for business day and then help customers, receive deliveries etc while making sure all the admin stays up to date. Most of your team members will be really easy to get along with and will always be more than happy to help you, you get the odd man who is out to make everyone else miserable, but you get them everywhere. you may be surprised with puppy visits in a mall and you will see animals everyday if your branch has a parlor. most days are either a lot of fun or really boring depending on where you are based. just make sure your admin is meticulous and you communicate with your team and management when you are confused or made a mistake.

Pros

your team becomes your family, lots of fun, job security, occasional surprise visit with puppies, highest salary you will receive with the benefit of getting pet food at cost or for free.

Cons

long weird hours, work weekends, can be very stressful
