Not just a job to play with cute animals all day.
Dog Groomer (Former Employee) – Wausau, WI – June 18, 2019
While I greatly enjoyed the work I did as a groomer, I was less than thrilled with the direction the company was moving. It was starting to feel much more about pushing high sales than caring in full for the clients and their pets. Quantity over quality, so to speak. The in store managers were generally always very understanding and helpful. The job itself could be very stressful, especially on days where we didn't have enough staff on hand or extremely busy days. The job itself is both physically and mentally challenging, certainly not just a play date with puppies. Bites happened, messes that had to be cleaned up, thrashing dogs, and it all had to be handled as calmly as possible. Definitely not a job for the faint of heart. But if you enjoy a challenge, keeping busy and constantly learning new things, it's a very rewarding experience. And yeah, you might have a puppy sneak you the occasional kiss or two.
Keeps you busy, always room to learn, fast paced, creative work
Stressful at times, can be physically exhausting, pushy on sales
