Company Culture

Fellow co workers are great to each other when they are able too, but often very stressed

Support from management

The shift leads were great. The manager and assistant manager seemed angry stressed and or indifferent to 90% of the staff

Career Development

You could get a promotion, but would not receive proper compensation (health dental or life issurance) until you were pretty much a manager ... there were only 1 manager position. It was impossible to get a raise

Overall compensation for your work

No raises, bonuses or benefits what so ever.

Company Image

I was proud because I was able to take on all the hard situations but it was very hard on my body and very stressful

Challenging Work

Not everyone can work with dogs and a lot was expected of you. Very physically taxing and risky

Suggestions for improvement

  • Benefits are necessary and should be offered to at least the shift leads. I would only allow someone in the yard with the dogs for 2 hours at a time to avoid stress. I would make sure all employees are using the same methods in the yards

What I like about the company

The co workers were so nice and supportive. Shift leads were empathetic and communicated well with staff. The facility was very clean and organized. Is located in a fantastic shopping district

What I dislike about the company

Manager needs to be more proactive with staff and communicate in a way that conveys any form of positivity. The owner of this location NEEDS to allocate funds to provide ANY form of benefit options for its staff however small. This location is way too small and really needs more space, employees are encouraged to push themselves to the breaking point and be in a yard with dogs for at least 4 hours straight which causes the dogs stress and fights. Breaks should be mandatory. When something is done wrong the manager should not scream at the staff in general and then storm off.

Company Culture

The company itself is great and well thought out. It is the management that is the issue.

Support from management

Management deserves a 0. Management is very unhealthy for those who have mental issues or anxiety. They constantly yell and call employees names and will always bash you and talk behind your back like you’re not there.

Teamwork

The team works really well together before management comes in and breaks it up.

Freedom to work independently

You have your own tasks to work on most of the time.

Internal Communication

Communication is okay with meeting but most are used to yell and call out employees in front of everyone else.

Gender Equality

Out of all the employees there is only 1 male and 11 girls.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The management seems anyone older than her a threat and will talk bad about them and put them down to feel power.

Career Development

You can’t move up really here.

Overall compensation for your work

You never get recognized for anything.

Office / Work Environment

This was one of the worst jobs I had. Loved working with dogs but the management made it such an unhealthy work environment.

Environmental Friendliness

Coworkers and pet parents are super friendly but again, management is awful. Clients are now starting to leave because they see how rude and awful she is.

Work-Life Balance

The Peoria company schedules you too much and doesn’t really allow you to have a life outside of it. They overwork you.

Company Image

The company as a business is great because they have several other locations but this one is awful.

Job Security

You have none.

Handicapped Accessibility

There isn’t a ramp but a little sliver of concrete that is flat. Not sure if wheelchair can get in.

Workplace Safety

Management took the cheapest and easiest route on safety equipment. They didn’t get what corporate said and now fights are happening between dogs and employees getting hurt.

Challenging Work

The most challenging part is being there with management.

Inclusive / Diverse

Out of all the employees there is only one male and about 11 girls.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Get a new owner and management.

Suggestions for improvement

  • They should start improving by listening to the concerns of the employees. They should clean the building more. They should be around the company more.

What I like about the company

I enjoyed the experience working with animals and learning more about dog behaviors.

What I dislike about the company

Management style is something they should work on. They need to be more genuine and actually cate about the company.
