Terrible. I worked part-time at the Apple Valley, MN location. Part-time were supposed to get 20-30 hours a week. I did receive at least 25 when I started as a new recruit, but eventually, I was given 1 day a week for 4 hours a day or no hours at all for the week. The distribution of work hours between all the employees were never equally distributed. Some part times would get way too many hours while others would get less than 15 hours a week. Only the store leader is allowed to make the schedules or change it. The other store managers have no say in it. With work hours like this, it is not worth working there.

Pay us 50% and above comission and and or hourly as was the terms before our big pay cuts. Hire someone who is a groomer to be the director of grooming operations and make sure the grooming budget is separate from the store budget.
Ensure management's personal bonuses DO NOT COME DIRECTLY from the store supply budget!!!!! Because then nothing ever gets fixed!

Too long. I interviewed, manager liked me but pushed me along to another manager whose location was too far. 2 weeks went by and I interviewed at other locations. A week after that first manager calls me to say my application is being approved. Few days went by and I was finally hired.

Aside from my passionate and hard working coworkers, the lovely dogs and our clients....
We all dreaded it. Our pay was always incorrect and we were forced to work alone and understaffed.
While our customers were always satisfied and extremely happy, our district manager was always screaming at our store manager about numbers and telling us how terrible we were at our jobs. Drove all of is out when they changed our 50% comission to minimum wage. That was the very last insult we were hit with.
