NOT a good company. Management does not care about employees or animals.Terrible pay, I had to meet sales goals that were not reachable while being constantly reminded that my job was on the line so I was basically forced to be crazy pushy with sales (while I do enjoy sales) to the point that people (and myself) were uncomfortable. I had to lie about where the animals, primarily the puppies, came from. They do in fact come from puppy mills and the conditions they came in were deplorable.I was told on more than one occasion to take an animal outside and kill it for one reason or another, for example; a parakeet we had at one point had a deformed wing and would not sell so my manager told me to "take it out back" (kill the bird making sure no one saw) I ended up putting him in my car and still have him. More than once a customer pointed out a puppy that didn't look well, one of the employees would take the puppy to the vet (if he was available) and the puppy died on the way, so that shows how much attention was actually paid to them. I could go on and on but I'll stop here. DON'T work here, DON'T shop here, shut them down and go save an animal from a shelter. I've been working since 2007 and this is by far the worst place I've ever worked.
