Pet Detective in New York, NY
Good for part time
Most of the day is spent standing around the aisles where the company products are located and talking to pet owners about switching to Blue Buffalo. However, depending on what location you are in the store employees or managers won't even give you the time of day. Once the company had us work in grocery stores it was a mass exodus of employees leaving to look for better employment. Our manager was an extremely nice and generous guy who let you switch shifts or take days off for personal needs. It was not his fault for the companies horrendous business decisions regarding the pet detective program. The pay is decent but not enough to live on. In order to make the full amount a week you need to work around 5 days with either 4-8 hour shifts. Some stores you work in the staff and managers are very welcoming and will make the time fly by.
Warehouse Worker in Monroe, OH
Coworkers are great. My supervisor is there when I need him and so is HR.
I only feel that the pay is rather unfair. We as employees are worth more per hour. Same with benefits. They're pretty costly. There's not much time off we can take. And i know alot of employees including myself won't call off.

Good job for extra income or retiree's
It's an easy job if you can manage yourself and like pets. There is no commission, but you are expected to keep track of your sales. It can be boring during slow days and crazy during the holidays. Overall, it's a great job to make some extra income. It's not a full-time job with healthcare benefits.

Easy enough job but super awkward
So the pay is decent for the job- it's not high pay or anything, but you're also not doing that much work. The main problem I had with this job is just how awkward it is. The management is super out of touch with what works in customer service. The job basically entails standing around a store and talking to customers about the product. The thing is- 90% of pet owners already have a dog or cat food brand they are loyal to, and simply aren't interested in listening to what you have to say. They provide no incentive to make people listen to you (such as free samples or coupons). You just awkwardly linger around for a few hours and it's mostly pointless. Also, the store managers can be cold to you since you're a third party employee and Blue Buffalo management won't do anything about it. In conclusion- if you're just looking to make some extra money, then by all means go for this job. But be prepared for a lot of awkward moments, because the management's ideas are terrible.
