Animal Care Technician (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – August 11, 2015
It was a great place to work if you love animals and love working with people. The work is hard, fast paced but you work with a lot of dedicated, like minded people. Sometimes you can bring your pet to work.
Employees love the Animals, Management Needs Overhaul
Former Employee (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – March 27, 2013
The animals are taken great care of at OHS and the staff and volunteers care deeply for them also. Co-workers were wonderful people but the management is a different story. They are very one sided and don't like to hear the voices of the "lower" paid staff. This was very discouraging and I would have loved to have worked there longer but could not stand the attitudes of the management any longer. They have lost many good staff members due to this reason.
Also, if management didn't like what you had to say or if you weren't always in agreement with them they would find a way to get rid of you. Even those people who had been there 10 years or longer. Very sad to see. Get some new, more caring managers of their employees and that place would be very good to work for! Plus don't expect to get paid much or get very good raises unless you are management.
good benefits, line staff and volunteers are great people and care about the animals
management is out of touch with their line staff and needs to be overhauled
