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
Working for this company is fun and challenging. You interact with many members of the public and their pets. Working in the store can be challenging as their are many tasks to be completed besides standing at the counter ringing through customers. You need to take on the whole store for stocking shelves, cleaning and looking after animals. As a groomer you are responsible for the whole grooming salon. Set up appointments and manage your schedule. Maintain cleanliness and disinfect the equipment and room as needed. Keep supplies stocked and of course produce a great quality grooming experience for the pet and its owner.
Decent place to work if you love animals. Not much room for growth though and a lot fo corporate locations are turning into franchise so chances are you won't be kept on the stafff. Corporate doesn't always have a spot for you to move to so you may be left out of a job.

I very much enjoyed working here because the staff were like family and I love animals. I enjoyed all the knowledge that was required to work there. The regular customers were a treat and I miss working in this type of environment.
Customer service with a smile. Accurate product knowledge. Booking grooming appointments. Inventory. Handling and processing cash and debit/credit. Best part of this job is the daily interaction with the neighborhood pets.
**I worked for Pet Valu the corporation, not a franchise. This review is strictly based on working at a corporate location. ** Pet Valu has an excellent training program. I felt very confident with the knowledge they armed me with for dealing with customers. They had exams that every employee was required to take, as well as seminars that were put on by the different pet food companies. It can be a lot of hard work. It's not just front end work like a lot of people expect. A lot of it is dealing with delivery; hauling bag after bag of 40lb dog food bags (or cat litter!) onto shelves that are well over your head. Pet Valu, for an 8 hour shift, gives you one unpaid 30 min break...and that's it. They say that you can have 2 15's...but if you try and take one you're in a lot of trouble. You're constantly on call (no matter what your position is), the district manager (at the time) was not a very nice person (trying to be polite here). That's not just my opinion, it was known chain-wide. Basically it's a good place to work if you don't mind being used a bit. They do teach you a lot about nutrition, but they work you like a dog and pay you very little for it. Oh, and corporate sold our store to a franchiser even though they promised they wouldn't...so job security is kind of shaky.
Salary, Delivery, Inflexible with shifts
I worked in all areas of the store from opening to running cash, sales, ordering inventory, stocking shelves, supervising staff, dealing with returns and complaints, all the way to closing up and making the night deposit.The most enjoyable part of the job were the people I worked with. We just had a reunion this past summer and we all still keep in touch. We were very close!!!
unloading the truck by hand.....no room for a forklift! :)
