Fun workplace

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Allows you to learn, promotes personal growth. Due to rotating and moving to different stores you learn how to work with different types of people. The company invests in training their staff

Pros

Personal growth, a lot to learn

Cons

Poor management

Not great

You often feel that you can easily be replaced. Management has favorites. They have high expectations for staff yet they don't make you feel appreciated. Commission sucks. They love watching staff on CCTV.

No Growth Opportunities

The load of the work culture is character building, the management is supportive however the systems of the company put strain employee relationships.

Pros

consistent service and product training

Cons

long hours and salary cuts

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

Everyday comes with its own challenges

You will get used to be part of the team. Coming in the morning and cleaning up and placing orders before you open the store. It eventually becomes the daily routine. Meeting up with customers and they do not trust you because you are new to them, but with time you get used to them and they too will be used to you. Creating customer relations at the point of you knowing their pets names and them showing you pictures of their pets that is enjoyable. Confronting grumpy customers who are always in a hurry and are not patient enough to wait for their turn to be served.

Pros

working shifts

Cons

weekend long hours
