Pros: scheduling flexibility
Cons: extremely poor training.
If you are experienced in animal care. And have a passion for animals. This is not a position for you.. Although they claim that animals come first, their focus is more on the sale and merchandising than proper animal care. Staff is not trained appropriately to assist customers with problems that may arise in the care of their animals. There is more of a focus on dogs and cats than anything else in the store. And because of this, aquatics, birds, reptiles , and small animals (which are termed by the company as companion animals) are considered ancillary. Therefore, not as much attention is given to properly maintaining these animals. And many customers are not fully advised of the appropriate care that is needed to maintain these animals as pets.
