Pros: got to wear our own scrubs.
Cons: no breaks, can only take lunch after surgery is completed
The owners do not promote autonomy or converse with employees other than on business issues, which isn't a bad thing, it just makes it an uncomfortable working environment. There are no benefits at all. No sick days, holidays or health insurance and the owner's leave it to their discretion whether they will decide, after a year of employment, if they will give you a paid or unpaid one-week vacation. Duties consisted of all hospital work: lab work, patient notes, surgery monitoring, cleaning cages, bathing and laundry. It is stressful because they only hire one veterinary technician for the practice which puts all the weight on the one person they hire. I did learn the "old school" radiology developing which is a requirement if you are taking an online course to obtain a degree for veterinary technician.
