Fun work, good people, room for growth
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAMay 2, 2018
A significant part of the job is being nice and friendly to people and their dogs, which is fun.

The pay is competitive and they pay a little more to make up for the lack of health insurance. Good bonuses too.

They definitely push you here to learn and progress, and to do a great job.

The hardest part of the job is that it's retail and helping customers/talking to people every day can be exhausting. It's rewarding though when they leave super happy.

The best part of the job is being a part of something that people are excited about. Almost all of the customers love this place and are happy to be there.
Pros
pay, people, fun work

Manager (Current Employee) –  Lynnfield, MAMay 2, 2018
Customer service is a top priority at Polkadog. We get to know our customers and grow relationships with both pet parents and pets alike! I have a great working relationship with all coworkers and we have fun throughout the day. I love that I can use my creative side to merchandise the store to keep things looking fresh and full. Management has always been helpful, and they welcome any questions or concerns I have had. The best part of the job is the visiting dogs that come in everyday! Also that we all work as a team and that management continuously recognize efforts made and reward us. Overall Polkadog is a great place to work and grow in your career.
Pros
Sales bonuses!

Fun, relaxed environment!
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Boston, MAApril 25, 2018
- Higher than the average minimum wage job with room for bonuses and pay raises.
- PTO is accrued
- No health benefits but sick leave is available.
- Very cool people to work with and overall great environment if you enjoy dogs, people and working for a smaller more intimate company.
- This is a slow paced job for the most part so you have to be personally responsible for keeping up with tasks, cleaning, inventory etc.
- If you have a great work ethic, good accountability and time management this is the job for you. Customer service should be excellent and you should be detail oriented.

Overall I highly recommend this job and think my experience as a current employee has been great and very educational.
Pros
Relaxed atmosphere, adorable stores, 30% employee discount, Pto, creative freedom
Cons
Benefits, Pay
