fun and challenging pet friendly work environment
Groomer (Former Employee) – McAllen, TX – March 17, 2017
As a groomer, a day starts with a list of up to 10 dogs (per groomer) to bath, dry, and groom in a timely manner. Time management is important. Some dogs have a specific early pick up time, others were scheduled for after work pick up. There is very little time for a break. Often the grooming process is slowed or paused for any number of reasons: pet parent client check in, pet parent product consultations, aggressive and/or undisciplined pet behavior. Management was somewhat lax in the salon. The team of groomers got along well. Each groomer had their own pet client list. Groomers paused personal work to help fellow groomers with challenging dogs. It was a necessary protection not only to the dog, but also the groomer. Dogs dispositions change when they are faced with unfamiliar environments, loud noises, and uncomfortable tools cutting near their faces.
