I worked as a manager for 5 years , never missed sales goals, always high 90's on stour visits, always received bonus, took it upon myself to help multiple local charitys. All to be blind sided the day before another raise was due and was let go "without cause" , made to leave like a criminal, wasn't allowed to retrieve my personal belongings, still do this day no explanation. Proving what I was always told about the company "don't over work yourself for them , to them you are only a replaceable body "
customers are fantastic
will fire you for no reason

Pet Valu has an amazing work culture and it shows with the excellent service, clean stores and pride staff takes in the job. Note: Stores are individually franchised. Some store owners can be difficult. Advice: Caution who you work for.
Great training, fun team, good Managers, flexible
Owners can be mean
Most enjoyable part of the job is the pets who come in to visit as you get to watch them grow up, learn new things or just become attached to them. Customers are different than if you worked in a mall retail setting as they have more patients for you, listen more and happy. The management can be different from store to store that you work at as it depends on the person I find an how they run the store they work at. The culture is a fun one but can be stressful at times especially during event times or making sure your reaching the sale targets because you want to succeed for the store and the company. Hardest part of the job is truck, finding out a customers pet has passed away, or moving. You learn a lot about yourself, the pet life style, people.
Pets, events to attend, Always learning new things
Not many weekends off
They keep management busy but hire poor employees and expect you to build them up. Challenges in the workplace include standing for long periods of time and quickly resolving problems. Great training is provided and ongoing support is always there.
Alot of down time
Overall decent place to work. The pay does not equal what you are expected to know/do. Lack of communication issues. Feedback is not listened to. Above average training
If you wish to be micromanaged and your rights to be ignored then this corporate giant is for you. Believe me, even though the staff are all smiles when you walk in, and there's a cute cat to look at, everyone is miserable. (Especially in Dartmouth)
Work/Life Balance: if you're a store manager or district manager, there is no balance at all....Pet Valu monopolizes your time. It's not uncommon for managers and DMs to receive calls, emails and texts multiple times on their days off. Additionally, new hires are expected to complete over 40 hours of online training UNPAID and on their own time! Salary: very low considering the expectations for store staff and managers. Manager's wages are based on store's sales, so if you have the misfortune of landing a low volume store, your wage will reflect (even though that is beyond your control and you're still do the same amount of work as someone managing a high volume store). In franchise stores the owners set the wages and this can either work in the employee’s favor or disadvantage depending on the franchisee, Head Office does not regulate franchise wages. Job Security/Advancement: as a company, Pet Valu rarely promotes from within, turnover is alarmingly high-even for retail- and as an employee you do not feel valued. It's a very stressful place to work because you never know from one day to the next if you will be fired. It appears great employees are terminated for no reason...often. Management: some store managers are worried about keeping their jobs while others do a terrible job and are kept on for some bizarre reason. The management styles of store managers vary from store to store, some are more positive (usually newer managers) while others are all doom and gloom. As for district managers, they each have their own agenda and will help store managers if it 'works - plus...
Great nutritional training
Everything else about the company
