it's just a part time job. NO advancements or promise career
Pros: quick to get hired, $40 pet food reinbursment, independent job
Cons: being in your feet, weekend job, temporary since money is crucial
I worked for the company almost a year. As any company, it has good and the bad sides. Now, you start with 8 hrs per week, however that could increase if manager likes you.Only weekends, so you don't have a life right there, however the weekends is where they make more money or expect more sales of you. Even they said sales experience isn't necessary, believe me! it is important! you have to start conversation with strangers who shop for their pets, know what their pets like, hear a little story of them and then boom! introduce their products, so yeah! it's definitely sells important.. It will be nice if they pay you per sale as well (I'd have made quite of money there).. but no... hourly is enough for them.
So, not career in this type of job, yes ! you have certain benefits but nothing compared to a FT job. It's a good experience if you need money quickly every week and loved pets (plus). Sometimes it's so slow that you don't know what to do since there is no customer, who to talk.. but you have to kill the time in some way... walking all the store and try to find a customer. It's a kind of lonely job but independent if you like that. Ah! you are in charge to submit your sales every week and look for the manager to sign up when you are done with te shift. Be on your feet all the time except when you go bathroom or take a break.
So there you got it! recommendable for spouses (mostly female) or elderly people (you see quite of them on meetings), student perhaps, but not for people who need a stable income. Whatever you make it the best or worst, it's up to you! Overall, you learned something of it. I did!
