Great place to work but low pay compared to other retail jobs
Assistant Manager (Employé actuel) – Windsor, ON – 3 juin 2019
A lot of people think it's just playing with animals all day - it definitely has those perks, but it's also still a job in retail that sometimes even working alongside animals can't make better. I did have a great team that were supportive and were more like friends in the end, but what drove me away was the pay. It was very low. Minimum wage for part timers, and even as Assistant Manager, I only made a few cents more. Even my manager's pay was extremely low compared to other managers' salaries at other retail jobs. You learn A LOT though which is super great. But for the amount you know after being trained, and what management does on a daily basis, the pay should be MUCH higher.
Extensive training, animals, great store management
Low pay, not a lot of recognition or advancement opportunities
