No advancement, no breaks, terrible pay, no training, zero communication, schedules always late, no back-up on register for 4+ hours at a time. Management is terrible, dog trainers need to run register whilst a dog class is in session, leaving clients waiting. Zero back-up when clients arrive and forced to run register because the rest of the team are in the manager's office. Many times i had to rearrange or cancel dog classes because the manager did not assign me to that day in the schedule, even though she herself outlined what days i was allowed to train dogs. Management excepts no responsibility for anything and does not listen to concerns. In my short time there, the manager fired 9 employees, made two quit, and kept hiring more and more people which reduced everyone's hours but still provided no support where needed in the store. People with zero experience in the field where promoted to seniority in departments, whilst my experienced colleague was left on minimum wage and unappreciated.
Short lunch, missed lunches, terrible management
