You'll just be a salesman
Clinic Assistant (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – November 15, 2018
This job is only good if you don't mind giving up literally your entire weekend. Shifts can go from 6am-8pm or later, not to mention a daily changing schedule, and most places are out of town, we're talking driving most days 2 hours one way. That can include driving all the way to Del Rio, (or Corpus, San Saba etc) and back in one day on top of working 3 clinics. You'd think with 12-14+ workdays you'd at least get a lunch, but NOPE! Seriously, they tell us no scheduled lunches, just try to eat when you can. Management gossips about employees there, and there is no job security. This a revolving door of a place, people get hired and quit/fired so much you never get to really know the people you work with. The almighty dollar and what you can sell is always going to be the bottom line, do not go into the job thinking that it's about pet care and wanting to help because it's not. They'll tell you'll get bonuses for selling the most, but that's only for the rig supervisor, the team that also helps with and does most of the work doesn't see a dime of any bonuses. At the end of the day you're just a salesman pitching flea medications and vaccine packages instead of actually helping animals.
Bad work environment and management
