Overall - Not a fun Experience
Groomer/Bather (Former Employee) – Lynnwood, WA – August 29, 2017
A Sink or Swim mindset that isn't meant to positively challenge but cripple.They aren't looking for people they are looking for robots. Training was bordering unhelpful and set someone up to fail if they didn't already know what they were doing, in a job that was specified to be a training job. An environment that made asking for help a problem or a hindrance. Employees didn't always follow the safety rules so they could make up time for over encumbering themselves with more animals than they were supposed to do in a day. Some animals showed aggression and were still allowed in, despite rules and safety policies stating that if any aggression or even stress is shown that the animal should be turned away. Training was more of pointing out errors and criticising time and work instead of correcting in ex. being simply told 'that's not right' or 'no' instead of 'it should be done this way' or 'this is how you do it'.
Don't get sick because you will be penalized no matter what it is if it's contagious or not, and the company follows a point system. Like stated before, looking for robots, not people.
Great benefits if you can survive.
Great benefits if you make it longer then a few months
Sink or Swim, Competitive, Loophole like rules, robot mindset, Lack of training that sets someone up to fail
