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.
