City Paws Animal Hospital experience report

  • 16.Nov 2016
  • Employee

Great place to establish a foundation as a veterinary assistant. Benefits for a small practice is the allowance to learn

2.72

Support from management

Not necessarily. I was told this was a learning practice. However, management was misleading and my two yearseparate became a sink or swim scenario

Teamwork

High turnover due to questionable mis-management. Assistants work well together to make the best of most situations.

Freedom to work independently

Yes. Daily doctor assignments and personal knowledge of the industry make life easier..

Internal Communication

The protocol for standard operating procedures is always in question due to the lack of reinforcement or accountability. The office manager only works part time and does not oversee the operation well.

Absolutely. It's a female dominant field...

Attitude towards older colleagues

No
