Fast paced place and that is ok. The problem is they want you to do everything from unloading truck to putaway, replenishment to picking to cleaning up lunch room and toulet

You do all the cleaning, helping customers, running till, stocking, inventory, merchandising. Laid back position except during holiday season. Often you will be opening/closing alone so the franchisee can save money. Management will be different at each store (corporate vs franchise). I was franchise. Good short term job, you get to pet dogs and cats all day. You don't get paid very good long term. No benefits unless you're manager or you have a great franchisee.

This is my first job (hired at 16 years old), the company so far is great, I work for a corporate store so management is quite easy and you get to know people that work in other stores quite quickly. The dynamic in the store between people that work there is quite good but you can get on the bad side of people if you aren’t holding up your responsibilities. My manager has been very supportive of me in giving me flexible hours to work and there is always something to do. During peak hours there are usually two people working but in off peak you can expect to be alone and be able to open and close without aid from someone else. You are expected to be active with customers greeting them in a timely manner and being a reliable source of information for them while also performing daily tasks.

Communication with upper management is good and they are an email away with any sort of concerns you have and communication with head office is great as well with the CEO having visited a few of the stores during the summer. There are set expectations there for how displays should be set up during each flyer period and brand standards. There have been an issue with new managers not being trained enough though so this is an issue which effects the store greatly.


Training at the start is time consuming but worth it, you become knowledgeable not just about dog and cat nutrition but specifics about certain brands and other animals as well. New modules have been added since I’ve started so there is always new information to be learned. There is also a part of the LMS that allows you to make

the store was never really busy so we mostly worked on other stuff like dusting, merchandising, and freshness tracking. you become close with your regulars and learn lots about dog food with their training system.

It's a good job for a student, but you will be making barely over minimum wage even with years of experience with the company. When minimum wage went up in AB I was making the same as coworkers who were hired two months prior with no previous experience.

Management also often demands too much from the staff and expects the store to be pristine, even when customers come in five minutes before close for a dog wash. It's up to you to find coverage for your shift if you're sick, but management often didn't have people available to come in and was often unavailable themselves (this once led to me working with pneumonia). The hours weren't very flexible either (unless you were in with the manager), and they varied wildly from 30 hours a week to a mere 12 hours.

Typical day at work consists of handeling customers, making sure you give them the best possible advice, help them find what they’re looking for, and answering their questions accurately. I learned a lot about animals and their diets. They offer a “pet expert” certificate program which is full of information. Management was very easy to deal with, very much a family atmosphere. Most enjoyable part of the job was the animals.
