Stressful workplace, bad management, terrible turnover and rude coworkers
Client Service Representative (Former Employee) –  Parker, CONovember 28, 2018
It seems that a handful of employees that work here do not like their job, they act bitter whenever you ask them for anything. I worked here for over a year and employees were treated badly and so therefore they treated each other badly. It's a bad work environment enough with the stress, you need to get employees that actually want to work.
Pros
Paid time off
Cons
No 10 minute breaks (not possible) sometimes not possible to eat lunch, management is terrible

Mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting
CVT (Former Employee) –  Parker, CONovember 22, 2018
Let me start by saying from a pet owner's perspective, this place is pretty great. They practice pretty good medicine here. But being an employee is a completely different story. Unpredictable scheduling, payroll 'complications' nearly every paycheck, awful management and some of the clicks in this crew are impossible to thrive with. I tried so hard to make it work but between all of this madness, it started to take its toll on me and drained me of all hope that I had in this business. There's a running joke in the hospital that everyone needs antidepressants to be able to handle working there-yes, really... so, good luck!
Pros
Certain staff members were great! Good medicine
Cons
Low pay, scheduling conflicts, almost always worked more hours than scheduled, some employees are just awful.

Credible Emergency Veterinary Clinic
Licensed Veterinary Technician (Current Employee) –  Reno, NVMay 9, 2018
24 hour facility fully equipped with specialty and emergency services. Work flow and load is dependent on time of day and seasonality. Scheduling can be troublesome as there are all sorts of shifts that need coverage. Can't find comparable compensation at other vet clinics in town.

ER with awesome staff
Registered Veterinary Technician (Former Employee) –  Cleveland, OHDecember 28, 2016
This is a typical emergency clinic but with an awesome hard working staff. If you are hard working, can follow directions and able to receive constructive criticism then you will fit right in. It is often very busy during emergency and the work load can be very large, difficult and tiring.

The management is usually hands off and only heard from afar which has its pros and cons.

The most enjoyable part of this job is being able to talk and bond with co-workers. In veterinary medicine the staff is predominantly women and often times it takes work to find a staff to fit in with but the women i work with make work feel like my second home.

The hardest part is dealing with the financial constraints of clients. Often times in emergency we deal with very difficult and saddening situations that often times come with a very large price tag that clients are not fond of. It can cause very high levels of compassion fatigue when as a staff you wish you could do more to help but the clients blame you for their animals expensive poor prognosis.
