Working with children and animals is a nightmare for some, but was very enjoyable for me. I loved learning about various species and their specific needs. I loved making kids smile and educating both them and their parents about their pets.
Pets and their people, what's not to love? I was fortunate to have an excellent GM in my store. Fun was encouraged, and our staff was close. I've heard in recent times, that things have changed though.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Dalton, GA – July 20, 2017
I was still young while I worked here and had just moved to Dalton Georgia, which was a mistake on its own, but in the short time I was there an assistant manager sexually harassed me quite a lot. I was too scared to go to HR but he was notorious for it and I did tell one of the managers. I quite shortly after and moved back down to Buford.

Amazing company to work for. This company prides themselves on the utmost care for all animals and their owners. Excellent animal care is their main priority and making sure customers are well informed of proper animal care of all varieties.

There is no room for growth with this company. They have made a lot of changes so you work very hard and do not get compensated for anything that you do. They do not appreciate when you give the company your all either. There are never enough hours so you are always losing money and time. They expect you to do great at your job but they also need you to do everyone else's as well because they are always understaffed.
short breaks, sometimes have to work through your break, judgment for everything, not good money
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Detroit, MI – July 15, 2017
The leadership in this company is the worst! DM and above have no idea what reality is like in the store. Constantly putting down the company and the partners in a public forum is not a professional impression. The continuous use of threats, foul language is not what I signed up for. Many Store Leaders are looking for a new job in this market due to the weak leadership.
Time spent with the kids, looking for their first pet
loved working with animals & animal lovers, however advancement was not great. Was not given enough hours no matter how hard i worked. The people were pretty great, best part was the animals and learning about the animals
