Wouldnt reccommend this place
TNR Driver (Former Employee) –  Sunnyslope, AZSeptember 20, 2018
First of all, they are very good to the animals. The TNR Boss wasn't a good manager and was always disengaged and cruel to employees. If you are great with bad management and Animals, then I recommend this job for you.
Pros
good pay, animals are awesome
Cons
Bad mangament, little training

Hostile Environment & Poor Management
Animal Care Specialist (Current Employee) –  Sunnyslope, AZAugust 16, 2018
Filthy, negative atmosphere. Petty departments, favoritism. Those who actually work with the animals ironically get the least pay and respect. Behavior team does not work with the animals and instead the dogs are given trazodone instead of mental stimulation and attention. Clueless management and HR. Volunteer training is not even thorough. Dogs have hung themselves due to poor building structures. Not a safe environment for Animal Care people either.
Pros
Making an animal feel better
Cons
Hr, Management, Petty Staff & Favoritism

Manager doesn’t know how to manage people.
Front Desk Administrator (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJuly 11, 2018
I was employed for a few months before I decided to leave. My manager thought she knew how to manage people because she knew everything, but had no idea how to manage people. Some of the people were really great to work with but others, stay away from. This position will be a revolving door if she continues to manage this position.

Stressfull and unfair
Animal Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJune 23, 2018
The Humane Society and the managers and employees in all areas are so worried about what everyone else is doing instead of what there job is suppose to be and when HR is brought into the mix they make it worse because they are one sided and instead if getting both sides of the story they take the side of the person or persons who are the favorites towards management.
Pros
Working and being around animals
Cons
Management and HR

"Ok" Overall
Animal Care Specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 22, 2018
The best part about this job was working with the animals and helping them get new homes. The environment is more about who you know not your work performance.

There is NO other place like AHS
Emergency Animal Medical Technician (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 26, 2017
Balance is hard to find because it is the nature of the job. Management is always 'improving' and changing either themselves or job duties. That can be fun and stimulating if you are not already stressed from the job.
I have always been VERY impressed and grateful for the benefits and compensation. I LOVE AHS.

Animal care
Animal care specialist (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 10, 2017
The humane society is a great place to support and it's a great place to feel like you're a part of. Obviously it's stressful being it's a shelter environment but the time spent with all the furry beings is reward enough.

Great place to work if you want medical benefits for your pet
Anonymous (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 19, 2017
Management does not value their employees & there is much favoritism. If you're not liked by someone, you will be let go regardless of how much you care or how hard you work.
No consistency in how decisions are made & who makes them.

Parted on bad terms.
Animal Care Services (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 17, 2017
Beginning of shift was always spent cleaning in one are aor another until front of house closed, then I would be feeding all of the dogs in the different buildings, then doubling back around to collect the bowls and do the dishes. Or I would be assigned to an area like adoptions, surgery, strays, or quarantine and I would be doing kennel cleans for dogs and cats the whole shift for those areas. Occasionally I would get to do computer work moving an animal to the adoptions floor.
Pros
Eventual discounts on animals.

very productive and hectic environment
Transporter (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMarch 10, 2017
Our typical day starts off as cleaning and sanitizing. We get basically to clean all day and make sure the animals are kept right. do little extra stuff that usually is somewhat dumb. the workplace is crazy and everyone is moving so quick that no one really gets a minute to breath. the hardest part of the job is keeping everyone clean especially the puppies and kittens. We do enjoy having the animals around to keep us company.
Pros
get to be with the animals, good benefits
Cons
short breaks get in trouble easily to many people don't like a lot of people.

Bad management and poor communication between depts
Transporter (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZSeptember 15, 2016
I liked working with animals, and other animal enthusiasts, even the animals that were scared. But some of the people and the work environment were bad. The communication was terrible. Not good enough to keep me as an employee. There was a lot of blame passed around and it was going to be very difficult moving up in the company from everything that I gathered. It was all just very stressful.
Pros
Helping animals, some good teammates, being around other animal lovers
Cons
Stressful conditions, poor management, bad communication

Horrible Management
Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZJanuary 16, 2016
Horrible Management that fires employees instead of trains them. The organization does a lot to help animals, however bad management leads to bad decisions and many get put down for things that are not the animals fault.
Pros
Saving animals lives
