Pros: great discounts on animal supplys, gaining knowledge through vendors
Cons: lack of management training, lack of focus, lack of career goals and wants.

I advanced my knowledge about salt water fish through customers and staff.
Management was difficult to work with having 4 managers, issues with hierarchy.
Co-workers were very unprofessional and there was no work disciplinary actions.
most enjoyable part was assisting customers with their animal needs – more... and helping educate on animal care and nutrition as well as developing my skills through self taught methods of merchandising and product knowledge. – less
