Suggestions for improvement

  • More training for each position so you can excel and allowing more hours to hire more employees.

What I like about the company

Bonuses, being ""caught"" doing something good for the month a couple of times, meeting and helping pet parents form lasting relationships, forming a solid working unit to successfully meet and exceed company goals, and having the chance to learn something new to advance my career.

Support from management

Not trained to even work.

Teamwork

yes Only to bring the store down.

Freedom to work independently

Mostly independent work witch that is a broken policy.

Attitude towards older colleagues

It didn’t matter how old you were everyone acted like they were in high school.

What I dislike about the company

Senior management hasn’t the foggiest clue as to how to right the ship. In all respects, from cost containment to overall growth strategy, they are short-sighted and always looking for somebody to blame. Never have they thought about trying to lift people up or entertain feedback from the masses, including their own customers! Disgusting.

Suggestions for improvement

  • operations, it needs more updated computer programs as well adopt some things from other companies to help assist it to make operational things easier.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Treat your employees correctly and the turnover rate wouldn't be so high also don't change people's times when they work through their lunch because they're not entitled to a break it is illegal

What I like about the company

There are no positive experiences where any attributions to this position or job or company The only positive is bust your butt the pay is livable

What I dislike about the company

Come out within hire competent people to start with reward those who deserve it and discipline those who also deserve it

Suggestions for improvement

  • Don’t assume the employees are the issue. The biggest issue is with a few very poor senior leaders. Take care of that, and engagement would improve immensely.

What I like about the company

Work with a great team of people daily. Company mission in supporting animals and their people is compelling.

What I dislike about the company

HR is a mess. Onshore the positions moved offshore previously. Need a more engaged and believable Chief People Officer.
