Amazing getting to know the fur babies that walk through the store door. I had great coworkers and was fortunate enough to land some great managers. The job was tough at times, but the friends you make in your coworkers and the pets make some of it worth it.

Points positifs

Pets, discounts, coworkers, training, knowledge

Points négatifs

Long hours, no work-life balance, expectations of attending online conferences when you're not working, gossip

Great job in retail

Your experience working with Pet Valu depends on what store you work for. There are corporate and franchise owned store. I love my job as Store Manager, upper management is very supportive and always available to help with any questions or concerns. Pet Valu head office does a great job sending memos and keeping the store informed about products or customers. There are many issues with the warehouse, this is bound to happen during these times. However the systems and processes used in the warehouse are very outdated and negatively impacts stores for sales or efficiency.

Points positifs

Health care programs for management, flexible scheduling, support from management

Points négatifs

It is a retail job; working holidays, dealing with upset customers

Easy going job

Good overall. Very nice and understanding coworkers. Pet valu was my first ever job. Having come from a life of sever anxiety, there was not much to be anxious about.

Great place to work

I worked at Pet Valu for about two years, it was a very relaxed and fun place to work which resulted in most of the staff being quite happy to do their job. I quite enjoyed it. The only downfall is that management tended to let staff do whatever they want with out getting them in trouble ever. It’s nice to have freedom in a job but to a point, sometimes it’s necessary to have a talk with your employees if it’s effecting the job. Other than that I loved working here.

Points positifs

Relaxed environment

Points négatifs

Some unfriendly staff

Fun to work with animals everyday

It was a good retail job, you get to see pets everyday.Easy job though, greet customers, stock shelves, cash management, clean the dog bath.I needed more hours though.

Terrible place to work

If you want to work in a place where managment actually cares about you, Petvalu isn't the place. Employees are disposable and treated poorly by managment. Worked hundreds of shifts alone in the night unloading heavy freight and boxes by myself. Terrible pay too. The only plus side is that the discounts are decent

Points positifs

Discounts

Points négatifs

Managment, Low pay, terrible DM

Employees are disposable

After working at a PetValu location for less than a year, I watched multiple turnovers occur in staff. Management can be very cold and unforgiving. Employees are offered a discount which is probably one of the only benefits outside of getting to see dogs all day.

Points positifs

Employee discounts

Points négatifs

Management

Fun job with great coworkers.

Have been with PetValu for over 6 years. Have many amazing coworkers who have been here 5+ years as well. Fast paced days, makes the time pass quickly.

Nice starter job, not recommended if you’re looking to advance your career

Pet Valu was my very first job. I started at just 15, and I worked there for almost 3 years. For a starter job, I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. My coworkers were very friendly, the customers typically were unproblematic, and working with animals is always a huge plus. The job itself I loved, but the management and salary could be improved upon. In my near 3 years, I started as a basic retail associate. By the end of my term, I was appointed many duties I believe were above my pay grade. I did not receive a raise throughout my near 3 years. The management seemed unorganized to me, and the complaints and suggestions of the employees were never taken into account. For the last 8 months of my job, we did not have a manager, and there were no urgent efforts to hire one. The staff numbers were less than I thought they should have been. I loved the first while of my job, but it quickly went south due to increasing management problems, and eventually I did decide to quit. However, the job itself was great, and if you’re looking for a short term, enjoyable job, I recommend it.

Points positifs

short & flexible hours, relaxed environment, friendly team and customers, easy work, interacting with animals

Points négatifs

management, no opportunity for growth, low salary, understaffed

Franchise

Worked at a location owned by a franchise owner. No real manager or management for that matter. Work conditions are not up to par. No break room or lunch area for staff. Co workers and customers make the job worth it. Pay is simply minimum wage and raises are essentially non existent, regardless of your previous experience.

Points positifs

Animals

Points négatifs

Lack of management

Informational but too much

I worked for a corporate store so this review is based on that. The expectations are way too high for the pay-wages are not competitive at all. Although I did meet a lot of great people and learned a lot it really wasn’t that great of a job.

Points positifs

Discounts

Points négatifs

Work overload for low pay

Staff is so fake

I worked at pet valu for about 2 weeks until they let me go because the other workers had “nothing but negative things to say” about me is what the manger told me. When I was nothing but nice and sweet to all of them i was also told I wasn’t a team player when I did everything I was asked and more! Especially for someone new and doesn’t know much. I personally think it was an excuse because someone was jealous. So employees are terrible they are nice to your face but then turn around and talk bad about you that’s all I heard about all the time. NOTT I good environment to work in. And they don’t give you breaks, terribly ran Business.

Great Part-Time Job

Good work environment. Everyone got along and supported each other. Busy enough that the day goes by but not overwhelmingly busy. Scheduling was very flexible and management was very supportive.

Points positifs

Good work environment

genuinely SO terrible .. stay away!!

Worst management i've ever had, worst group of higher ups i've ever seen. They don't care about you. They don't follow labour laws. They surely don't care about your safety or how you are treated. Definitely not worth minimum wage . Don't work here. You'll thank me later

Points positifs

Cute Animals come to visit

Points négatifs

horrible management, unfair pay, poor treatment
Avez-vous trouvé cet avis utile?

Over all its random if you will like

Managers are expected to do a lot and part-time staff are expected as you way more than any other stock position but for the same pay the store environments themselves can be quite entertaining and a lot of fun but there's a lot of top-down pressure for not a lot of compensation

Points positifs

Discounts, pets come in

Points négatifs

Low pay, no work-life balance

Don't work here unless you want to be an empty void of yourself

Terrible job. Management expects your entire life to be 100% petvalu. If you do grow in the company, you end up doing more work than you're paid for. Awful turnover rates. Managers are so rude and act better than everyone, even though they barely graduated high school. Tons of gossip, belittling, and brown nosing. You're going to be miserable and mistreated greatly. Run, run fast and run far.

Points positifs

discount, dogs, virtual learning

Points négatifs

scattered hours, rude, false info given

Fantastic, but…

It’s an amazing place to work, but don’t expect much by ways of raises. Hours can be stingy most weeks, but if it’s your first job it’s a great place to socialize and get comfortable with retail life

Points positifs

Flexible hours

Points négatifs

Short/long shifts, few raises

Great place to work, but it will depend on Franchise Owner

The Franchise Owners I worked for in Peterborugh, ON were the best any employee could ask for. They were always very understanding of life and school needs and paid well with nice bonuses.

Good learning program, not great upselling practices

I liked working in pet valu for the clean and organized stores. It was fun solving pet parent’s issues and learning about pet care. Letting the adoptable cats play as I closed was the best part of my day. I definitely don’t like how dog and cat focused the store is. Little to no experience with small pets other than betta fish. The upselling to ignorant customers felt demoralizing. Sold some terrible items that aren’t good for pets. Lastly, management used extra money staff earned for sales quotas for cleaning supplies.

Points positifs

Lot of cute pets, 20% discount, adoption program.

Points négatifs

Lots. Upselling mostly.

Awful place to work !

I thought this would be a fun place to work , the local pet shop , full of dogs , puppy's and happy people , How nice would that be well that part was right but what I did not expect was the extremely poor management ! Terrible work culture with bullying and favoritism ,They lose staff on a constant basis and after a few months it became apparent why . do yourself a favor and look elsewhere .....
