One of the best jobs I’ve ever had!

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
You get to meet all like-minded coworkers and pet owners (bonus of seeing dogs or cats every day!).You work closely with a cat rescue to find adoptable homes for them in store, work with dog rescues events once a month and overall it’s a straight forward job for those with a head on their shoulders! It’s not rocket science but it is a fast spaced environment. Usually your shift you might work alone or with another coworker, possibly 3 all together! (Full team on truck/delivery days) this job kept me on my toes for 5 years. There’s a lot of responsibility with the high demand and cleaning (especially the stores with a dog wash). It can be overwhelming if you’re alone or with a coworker to keep up with the demand of the store while trying to clean, keep tabs with stock, help customers and prep for Flyer day OR putting the delivery away OR simply closing the store at the end of day. There’s rarely time to be lazy or else you’re creating a headache for yourself and the team.

Points positifs

Fun atmosphere and coworkers

Points négatifs

Long task list / high store demand / short staff and the minimum wage pay

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


Points négatifs

Lack of management

Workplace culture at Pet Valu

The job wasn't all that enjoyable except for the interaction with customers and their pets as well as your coworkers. You receive plenty of worthwhile knowledge particularly on the best nutritional food to feed your pet. Management left a lot to be Desired!!

A fun working environment

This is a fun working environment, especially if you are an animal lover. You get to interact with all kinds of pets and it is a laid back environment.

High Learning Curve for Minimum Wage, but fun.

Fun workplace where you get to help people learn about their pet's specific needs. I learned a lot about pet nutrition as there's a large course you have to complete within your first few months there. Management is inconsistent Expected to be as skilled as a car salesperson, at minimum wage pay There are dogs there almost everyday, and they don't judge you.

Great place to learn

I have been working at a Pet Valu corporate store for almost 2 years now. Its important to note that this job has a lot of training in pet nutrition, which takes about three months to complete all the modules, so you do need to be interested in learning to enjoy this job. I think its a great company to work for, although upper management is always hit or miss. Usually one store will have upwards of 5 emloyees, so expect to be friends with your colleagues! Great staff discounts, and the company will help you move up if you want the challenge.

Franchised location

My manager is a hard-working supportive person, is also flexible with scheduling. The staff are trustworthy and contribute to a positive work environment. Customers are often friendly.

A great place to work!

The early work experience given me here has allowed me to continue to succeed in my other jobs. The work environment allowed me to meet and get to know many people from all facets of life.

Not family-friendly.

I had this position for 8 years. I had year wage increases, but, even though I worked 40 hours a week, I was a part-timer and received no benefits. Once the minimum wage went up, all of my advancements were null and void. I made the same as the new untrained people walking in. I became a single parent with little support, and was reprimanded for not being able to work all the days they wanted me to, because I didn't have daycare on those days. I left because of it.

Points positifs

I met many great people.

Points négatifs

Not family-friendly.

Not happy with management

The higher management does not listen to employee suggestions and puts too much pressure on store managers.My experience was great except for the fact that my district manager was not very nice, did not give me any praise for my hard work and was always telling me what was best for the store when realistically he was not the one in the store dealing with day to day customers and experiences.He really made me feel incompetent when I was working my butt off for the company for many years.Higher management needs to be supervising and training their district managers to be sure they are treating their staff well.I dreaded speaking to my boss, it was always negative comment after negative comment, sarcasm and no praise.I had dealt with a few district managers during my employment and 2 of the 3 were not pleasant.I feel Pet Valu has come a long way after being bought out by a US company. They are doing a good job with revamping stores, opening new stores and focusing on sales.They should not get so money hungry that they forget about the friendly customer service aspect.Its all about the customer, greeting them, informing them, asking about their pets..etc.It should NOT all be about selling them higher priced merchandise and more and more items.

Points positifs

good pay. nice atmosphere, great product training.

Points négatifs

long hours, short staffed, unpleasent managers.
