Reviews - What employees say

3.37 Employees say

Support from management

They never listen, use the Power they have to make whatever they want with employees.

Teamwork

Some people are great, others not so much

Internal Communication

The manager is really hypocrite, she "hear your requests" but at the end she "forgot you tell her that".

Gender Equality

All of the employees are women

Overall compensation for your work

poor pay rate

Work-Life Balance

shifts from 10-12hrs every day.

Workplace Safety

some doctors don't care about VA and VT safety.

Suggestions for improvement

  • CHANGE THE MANAGER!!! She's never at the clinic, and when she is there spend all day in the "office" drinking iced coffee and talking by phone. It's always late and leaves early. Have preference with some employees, don't help at all in the clinic, don't now how to do anything.

What I dislike about the company

They don't listen the employees. They offer you some benefits and upgrade for your career but then once you're an employee they make all sort of excuses so you end up stuck in the company with any benefits.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Not being so focused on the number of pets seen. Some patients take up more time i.e. a vaccine booster appointment vs a critically ill one with blood work, x-rays etc. Deal with problems swiftly. Enforce set or predictable schedules so staff can maintain work life balance.

What I like about the company

Reimbursement for taking vet tech boards. The team you work with makes or breaks the experience so I've enjoyed a good one that celebrates people's successes.

What I dislike about the company

We're open 7 days a week. Some managers are OK with predictable schedules. Others don't want people to have the same schedule 2 weeks in a row. Long hours, low pay and no lunch breaks. Issues take months if not years to get resolved. Some managers play favorites.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The company should take complaints seriously and make efforts to reach out to employees about their happiness. Many of our employees are on anti depressants since beginning their employment there. When we reached out to corporate for help and change, we were told we are in charge of our own happiness and that we need to deal with it on personal time. My direct boss is an unpredictable bully. She constantly puts us down and gives us no please for a job well done. She tells us we should not have to be thanked for doing our job. It is an oppressive environment

What I like about the company

I get to work with animals and make a difference in their lives.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of the way the doctors are told to charge clients as much as humanly possible. The company should do more to show employees they care and appreciate them. You only get offered fair compensation when you quit.
