Fun and engaging, but bad management

The job itself is fine, it's nice to see animals all day, and I work with a lot of hardworking, kind, and genuine people. Management however, is a mess. They are cliquey and gossipy and will prevent people from moving up due to personal biases. Corporate would hunt part-timers for sport if they could. staff are underworked and underpaid, and schedules change every week.

Management is terrible

The job itself is ok, it's nice to meet people's pets. The company puts a lot of pressure on employees to upsell. The better you do the more they expect of you. Management is completely unprofessional and difficult to work with, to say the least.

Points positifs

Discounts and free pet food

Points négatifs

Management, pressure to sell

Minimum wage forever but if you really need a job and enjoy a very fast paced work environment it's okay. you're also expected to memorize everything about the menu. in my opinion the job is okay but should pay more for efficient workers.

Fun but terrible pay

customers are great, pay was terrible and as new owners buy stores your responsibility goes up and you're never thanked just put down. Owner care more about making money then the employees and customers

Terrible

Do not work here, especially for franchises. They don’t care about you and there’s a major conflict of interest because they often hire their family members, who are the ones who cause the most problems. But because they are family they are never confronted.

None

Fun job but bad people

I worked here for a couple months and the management treated me horrible. I’ve heard from other people I know that they also had a bad time working here, I’d steer clear.

Horrible management

Management will belittle you. They will hire you for a location and send you to another without your permission. Managers will talk badly about co workers to other co workers. When there’s unsafe situations, the higher ups do nothing about it.

Not care about their employees

Working at the store should be very simple and easy, usually customers are pretty nice , but the owner of the franchise and management have no interest on anything but sales, they can make many decisions that will just affect negatively to the staff and not even communicate about it.

Brutal management.

Honestly this job is not worth it. The physical strain from constantly lifting 30-40lbs all day and receiving 2-3 orders weekly. The mental exhaustion from the way management treats staff. You’ll constantly be set up for failure with a lack of communication and details and be reprimanded for not knowing. The inconsistency in scheduling, the amount of gossip, among other issues is why this place runs through staff faster than any place I’ve ever seen. Everyone comes in as a pet owner, excited to see animals at their workplace and interact with people who love their pets, and end up miserable and ready to quit within their first month. Lastly I will say that Pet Valu is franchised in Canada, so it’s likely different in every store. But working under these owners and the people they choose to employ is too much for anyone to deal with long term.

Horrible Workplace

Great job, the tasks were fun and easy to complete, but the gossip is sickening here. The amount of times I overheard employees who minded their own buisness be brought up in conversation, who did their job and was nice to everybody. Management is entitled and will fire you on your probation for not “fitting in” with the crew. You feel extremely disconnected from the senior employees, because they never bother to include you in teamwork or communication. People will talk about you behind your back and work from older employees gets pinned on the younger ones. In my time there, i witnessed three probationary employees get fired for being “unfit”. At that point, its a matter of the buisness, not the workers. Youll get fired for being unwell, and never tell them if your struggling, they’ll take that as a negative and let you go. Training not provided, expected to know everything and if you don't nobody will help, and the older woman with black hair who works there is truly miserable.

Points positifs

Great job, handling animal care

Points négatifs

Management, Environment

Awesome

Loved working at pet valu. Customers can be good and bad which is tough. But co workers were awesome and tasks were easy, always something to do but not overly demanding.

Extremely Judgmental Work Environment

Management was kind at first but is quick to blame new staff for older staffs short comings. The workplace was extremely hostile and unpredictable. Gossip and dramatics filled the place with tension. It got so bad that I dreaded waking up in the morning. It made me truly hate my life. The only thing keeping me happy was seeing the animals happy under my care.

Points positifs

Pay, seeing the animals

Points négatifs

Staff, management, ownership

Not what I expected.

I'm sure other Pet Valus all over the world are a great place to work for. However, the manager at the Kingston locations has a bad habit of letting people go with zero warning and no opportunity to improve/change their habits for the better.

Points positifs

You got paid breaks

Points négatifs

Schedule is never the same, long commutes to other locations

Good Work Environment, Upper Management Micro Mangers

It was a fun place to work, they give you a solid amount of training video, and the manager was always well informed so you could always learn from them. The only issue was upper management was micro managers, when they were coming to visit they would critize everything and redo displays becuase "they weren't proper" even though you are sent diagrams on how to set it up. They would also get upset if you didn't have a display in the exact spot from the diagram even though your stores size it wouldn't fit and you could more accurately follow the diagram in the spot you chose.

Typical Retail Environment

It was pretty much what I expected from a retail position in rural Alberta. There were good times and not so good times. If you're a progressive thinker, watch what you say in Okotoks.

Amazing feeling of a supportive team. Wages are a bit low but easy for in company promotions! Felt supported and cared for by all.

Day to day is customer service. I was apart of management so also orders, scheduling, problem solving and more. Hardest part was sustaining living in Vancouver with the wages given. Overall very much enjoyed my time.

Points positifs

Working with animals

Points négatifs

Misinformed customers

Not a good place to work.

Managers have zero training and they don't allow employees to grow. There's not a positive atmosphere among co-workers. Managers will honour seniority before skills.

Points positifs

Flexibility

Points négatifs

Low wages and no opportunity to grow. Long hours standing.
