Veterinary Technician (Current Employee) – New York, NY – March 27, 2017
The slackers are rewarded, the workhorses are driven into the ground. Once the new romance is over, expect to make less than the new hires and expect the new hires to get special treatment at your expense. Veterinary technican students get better training then some new hires so expect to be thrown in the fire with ill trained supervisors. What could be a great team is ruined by poor management so do your homework and research who is running the place. Often times job descriptions are changed to suit their needs without compensation.
Good Veterinarians and talented technicans
Poor management and upper level employees who dont care about their employees
Licensed Veterinary Technician (Current Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – February 22, 2017
Understaffed and overworked. No communication from management. No compassion for exhausting hours. No training and no opportunity for advancement. There is no communication between management and staff and management seems to always be up to something behind your back. There is no opportunity for training or advancement.

You are over worked, under paid, the benefits are horrible and continue to be cut every year. They do not believe in having a life outside of BluePearl. The management has favorites and if you are not one of them you will not advance. The same amount of work is not expected from everyone, some work hard and carry the work load while others hold up tables
Good place to start, but not much room for growth.
Emergency/Intensive Care Unit Veterinary Assistant (Current Employee) – Auburn Hills, MI – August 15, 2014
The majority of my shift, I was the only technician in the ER/ICU. I had to care for all patients within the hospital and take care of incoming patients. Multi-tasking was a must every day. As other departments started coming in for the day, they were all very willing to help when needed. The hardest part was prioritizing the most important tasks and treatments when I was the only available technician. The most rewarding part of the job was helping patients and the clients.
No room for growth, do not feel management was properly run.
