A typical day is coming in, opening the store, checking what orders are arriving that day. preparing by pulling overstock from the back and putting it out.
The owner gives plenty of opportunity to go to confrences etc.

The job can be challenging with orders arriving nearly everyday, but if you enjoy a fast paced environment you will be set.

Terrible management. They are extremely rude to not only their staff and suppliers, but also to customers. They truly do not know how to run a business. Very unorganized people, with no respect for anyone. I would never recommend this store for working or shopping.

If I could give negative stars I would.
Owners only seem to care about money and the turnover rate is the worst I’ve ever seen across the board.

Highly recommend you don’t even bother starting there as they will never appreciate you and undervalue you constantly.

Terrible place to work, they should be taken over by better management.
Points positifs
Get to see animals.
Points négatifs
Everything else.

Management has their favorite employees who get special treatment. If you aren't one of the chosen ones then you will get all the bad shifts and tasks. Anything you say about the unfair treatment will be ignored by management because their favorites can do no wrong. Im sure this job is great for people the managers like, but for everyone else it's okay at best. It's a minimum wage job with high expectations and no room for advancement.

Initially when I started at Global Pet Foods, I was told that everything that I had to offer was exactly what they were looking for. I worked a few training shifts and received a TEXT MESSAGE (not even a phone call) from the owner saying that my availability (which did not change at any point from the time I was interviewed) was not what they were looking for. I was never asked to provide any information or told anything about how I was going to be paid. I would get scheduled one shift at a time and would receive no indication of when the next would be.

It is not a safe place to work in a pandemic either as no PPE or hand sanitizer is made readily available for the staff. If you bring your own, you are asked why you are using it.


I would not recommend for anyone to work at this location as the owner is a bit sketchy in how he handles his new staff. The staff were nice enough, but you definitely get the feeling that you are an outcast and have to earn your place with them.


I'm not one to write reviews, but thought that I should warn others as no one should be placed in the situation that I was in.

I really enjoy merchandising and I felt that I had a lot of creative freedom within my role on the team
Customers could be a tad demanding and abrasive but that might just be the area I live in

Learned a lot about pet health without any previous experience or knowledge and I liked learning about new products

Relaxed environment. Kind staff and all enjoy animals. Can be busy at times. Pay is not great unless position is higher up, but that is to be expected of any retail job.

Unlike a lot of franchises, GPF allows its franchisees a LOT of freedom in how they run their store. This means that while I could talk about how I felt the job was really fulfilling as the owners were truly passionate about only stocking pet food that was actually good for pets, and ruthlessly trained their employees in product knowledge, and I actually felt like I was making a really positive difference for the customers... that's not going to necessarily apply to any other Global Pet Foods location. The store owners are almost completely on their own.

This was great for our location in the sense that the owners could make actual ethical purchasing decisions, and were constantly tossing out products they felt weren't safe for pets. (Which, in the pet industry, is A LOT. My location was the ONLY pet store I have EVER been in that didn't sell pine and cedar shavings for small pets.)


But it also meant that when they hired a personal friend as a manager who seemed to be out to straight up sabotage their business, and none of the employees felt they could say anything... well, suddenly everyone was finding other places to be. The owners were wonderful and I loved working for them but there was no one to tell them "your manager is outright telling customers to get out and not come back and is making your employees miserable". There's something to be said about working for a larger organization with a system to formally submit complaints and concerns. A Global Pet Foods franchise is not structured like that; it's a private individually run business that pays franchise fees

I loved when animals would come in, the customers were also very kind. I never had an issue when working there, mind you I only worked there for a short time.

I have liked every person I've worked with here, it's a friendly and supportive group, from the manager down. Customer service is key, along with a love of dogs. Be prepared to learn about a lot of different types of foods and accessories so you can help customers to choose what is right for their pet(s) and situation.

Very low stress job. You end up learning a lot about animal nutrition and health. Obviously you have to show up on time and do your best, but that's with any job.

At first, I loved it. It had been my dream job. Then upper management invaded and made it very stressful because they were very bias. Don’t recommend GPF pei

Working at GPF was very fast paced, extremely work loaded job. We were often understaffed and expected to fulfill enormous amounts of work with little to no resources or help. I would recommend taking a good look at their schedules and staffing structure before accepting the position, not all GPF stores are the same but it seems to be common. Getting to meet lots of different sweet animals was a highlight. Coworkers and most of the management were good with the exception of the few. Beware owners that overwork you and offer minimum pay.

Customers were great but the job was generally a lot of work for little pay. Also very extremely boring and repetitive when it was slow. Management was impatient sometimes and disorganized. No room for advancement. Low hours for part-timers.
Points positifs
Great customers, flexible hours if you get any
Points négatifs
No advancement, disorganized, Boring

i had only worked for a week for the place to decide i wasnt fit or good enough for their work place because i had struggled lifting. i honestly thought it was a very unfair decision because i know and believe i had great potential i did work there like it was my own place with love and fast pace just because of one fault in me they decided to let me off
and not to mention i did manage to stack about 10 bags of 15kg bags although i struggled i did not give up and thats the most important working in any place that to never give up or feel afraid to ask

i took initiative and asked questions regularly i never came late and did all the work that my manager had asked

Great place to work lots of room to advance and educate yourself about pet food and nutrition. Lots of interaction with pets and their owners. Physical job with lifting and carrying always something to do with merchandise. Best part of the job is the relationships you create.

Not a bad place to work, swaps between fast-paced and relaxed as any retail location, you can never predict when you will be busy or dead. A lot of training required as you are giving people health and nutrition advice about their pets and need to know what you are talking about. Duties will include: cleaning, customer service, answering phone calls, checking off product to invoices, counting inventory, stocking, facing, merchandising, etc. Small staff, so punctuality and attendance is key, but also the coworkers are close knit and get along well.

It was fun and exciting. Got to see dogs and other small animals everyday at work. Learning about different diets and the health problems with pets due to food choice.
