Veterinary Assistant in Sterling, VA
on January 8, 2015
The veterinary field is rewarding, but not a lot of pay for the amount of work you do. Long 12 hour days are a regular with working holidays as well. The upper management in the corporate offices are not very helpful. You do not get a lot of free time, so the work/life balance is horrible. There is not a lot of opportunities to advance.

Where to begin, I think the company on a smaller scale is a great company what I mean by that is lower management. Not CFO’s, the CEO, COO or any of the field directors. I’m talking about location managers and below. First thing to know is if you don’t have great customer service or don’t like retail work it will be a hard adjustment. This is a corporation and they base everything on numbers regardless of what they say in their “Mission Statement” they as a company don’t care about pets only the money. It’s brutal honesty but true. The only ones who care are those of us actually in the hospitals doing the work (Doctors, RVT’s, VA’s and CSC’s). You have to hit a certain percentage for sign ups on our “wellness plans” or you get talked down to during your annual review. I never caved and it cost me. I was there strictly for the animals and because of my love for my co workers. Finally after 6 years I am leaving and have hit a wall with them. Now you have to remember this is a corporation and with that means competitive and better pay as well as sick days and holidays. Medical and Dental is laughable though but they do match on 401k. This job is best suited for 18-24 year olds just trying to start out. The amount of turnover is just insane and they still do nothing to change it. My advice is stay for the animals and money until it’s too much and then find something better.

Very supportive team and manager who helps cover when people are not able to come in. Usually a four day work week and scheduled can be done allowing time with family and i thought the culture and work environment was not stressful

The techs are mostly underskilled and Dr are over worked and underskilled. It's all about what your selling to clients they don't care about pets or owner care.
