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

laid back workplace, but needs pay increases and better management

The best part of the job is being able to make friends with some co-workers and dealing with customers and their pets. The discounts are good. Employees are rarely punished for coming in late all the time or calling in sick forcing other employees to take their shifts when its their day off. In the several years I've been with the company, i've received raises totalling about $1.50 per hour. The company is growing quickly and has large profits, but gives like 20 cent raises to employees. Can be a caty environment. Store management can be laid back, but district managers are not and can be very rude and disrespectful.

Points positifs

Store discounts, customers, pets

Points négatifs

lack of hours, district management, pay, gossip

This is the worst company to work for. PLEASE, do not even bother applying.

I can't even begin to describe how much I hated working here. Management is terrible and corrputed. They don't care for their employees at all. The manager where I worked was a dictator and EVERYTHING had to be here way or the highway. I feel bad for my co-workers, they feel stuck there because they both rely on the income but lucky for me I'm a student and was able to escape. You'll be leaving here within your first 6 months if you even bother to work here. ]Legit a nightmare.

Points positifs

Nothing

Overworked under appreciated

This is a job. If your looking for a job to get up to everyday and go to this is it. But if you looking for a place that supports you, appreciates you, pays you fairly for the work required, and has room for advancement... this is not the job for you. I worked there for over a year never saw a single raise even though I was a key holder. Ina general day at work you would open or close each shift sometimes would would have to do so alone. Then you would have to face and brand the store, do overstock, clean, help customers, do the till usually alone until noon when the next person got there. We worked 8.5 our shifts with unpaid breaks and management frankly didn’t care. There was a general consensus of feeling unappreciated regardless of how much/ how hard you worked. It was a good job for a while but like all retail it is a revolving door of staff with little reliance

Points positifs

Dogs, pet food knowledge

Points négatifs

Unpaid breaks, poor management, low wages, too much work for not enough money

Bridgewater NS

Management at both Bridgewater locations is a complete joke and higher management is no better. Management in the stores telling customers that the prescription vet food they feed is garbage and need to switch to something the store sells is not safe for the animals and completely unethical. Consistently being belittled by management made for a toxic work environment, not to mention substance abuse that gets blatantly ignored because the district manger doesn’t want to deal with it.

Management was very unfair

Management treated all employees unfairly regarding pay and overall interactions. Punished for being sick Basic necessities like soap in the bathrooms and a lunch break were not provided Store was cleaned with non pet-friendly chemicals

Points positifs

People bring their dogs in and you can pet them

Points négatifs

Management is corrupt and inconsiderate

Fun workplace to learn a lot in

Working at PetValu was a lot of fun, getting to not only interact with customers but their pets was awesome. I learned a lot about all different sorts of animals working here.

Management and staff will be greatly missed

Pet Valu Albany was an amazing place to work! You quickly get absorbed into the family atmosphere with management who truly care for your professional and personal life. Everyday was a joy to go to work. I will miss my Pet Valu family very much as I moved to ON.

Pet valu is the BEST!!!!!!

I’ve had stressful jobs before but PV... seriously the best environment ever. I don’t know if I just got really lucky with my coworkers but also customers are also 1000x more friendly too! It’s never stressful and it’s super relaxed sometimes, it doesn’t even feel you’re working! I love going into work and especially meeting all the animals that come in too :)

Toxic workplace due to abusive owner

Worked at this particular location for about 7 months and could no longer take the incessant abuse by the owner of the store The owner actually assaulted me at one point, which was witnessed by the manager, and we were both in shock The owner also loved to send emails to all staff berating us for how we would behave at work, pay and absences, instead of speaking to us personally about her issues. Could no longer take the intimidation, assaults, and agression on behalf of the owner of this Pet Valu and HAD to elave

Points positifs

easy going, could bring pets to work, great customers, free products and discounts

Points négatifs

abusive owner

Fun atmosphere, good certificates, very knowledgeable on all things “pets”

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.

Fun place to work at if you are interested about pet nutrition

Pet Valu is committed to training their employees on how to educate customers on feeding their pets. A typical day at work includes answering customer questions about different brand of foods and cashing people out. It is fun to be apart of a great team who all work together as well. Hardest part of the job is learning about all the different brands of food, but once you grasp the main ones and what they do for different types of breeds it is okay. The most enjoyable part is seeing the fluffy customers or playing with kittens.

Interesting, laid back working environment

I love my job at Pet Valu. Since day one I've learned so much about animals and their proper care than I would have had I not applied. It's a self-directed job, meaning you tell yourself what needs to be done most days, so it builds your responsibility and accountability. You also get to see people's face light up when you give them the advice they need, or a new idea to bring excitement into their pet's lives.

Points positifs

Make meaningful connections with customers, be around animals

Points négatifs

long hours, slow spells in customer walk ins.

Fun place to work and start in the pet industry

Company has really great core values and gives great product knowledge in the training. You get to work with animals and diagnose their problems through their dietary issues. Staff changes often due to lack of knowledge or willingness to learn. Not a great student job.

Points positifs

work with animals

Points négatifs

lack of work flexibility

Great Learning Opportunities

Pet Valu was a fantastic place to work. The schooling alone for better understanding on pet nutrition was phenomenal. The customers are great and head office when they get their stuff together works well.

I loved it.

I had a lot of fun working here, the customers are nice and you also get to spend a lot of time with all kinds of animals (depending on location).

An okay workplace.. Not Great

A typical work day is helping customers, cleaning, and putting out stock. After working here for 3 years I have learned a lot about the pet food industry, however, this was no thanks to the pet valu training program. The training program does not teach you any useful information and you are forced to learn as you go on the floor. I work for a franchise store and I find that the management is very sloppy. There is no consistency at my location. The workplace culture is fun, but can be stressful. The hardest part of the job is trying to deal with management. The best part of the job is dealing with the customers and their pets.

Points positifs

play with cats in store

Points négatifs

inconsistent hours, management is not great
