Nice starter job, not recommended if you’re looking to advance your career

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Pet Valu was my very first job. I started at just 15, and I worked there for almost 3 years. For a starter job, I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. My coworkers were very friendly, the customers typically were unproblematic, and working with animals is always a huge plus. The job itself I loved, but the management and salary could be improved upon. In my near 3 years, I started as a basic retail associate. By the end of my term, I was appointed many duties I believe were above my pay grade. I did not receive a raise throughout my near 3 years. The management seemed unorganized to me, and the complaints and suggestions of the employees were never taken into account. For the last 8 months of my job, we did not have a manager, and there were no urgent efforts to hire one. The staff numbers were less than I thought they should have been. I loved the first while of my job, but it quickly went south due to increasing management problems, and eventually I did decide to quit. However, the job itself was great, and if you’re looking for a short term, enjoyable job, I recommend it.

Points positifs

short & flexible hours, relaxed environment, friendly team and customers, easy work, interacting with animals

Points négatifs

management, no opportunity for growth, low salary, understaffed

Informational but too much

I worked for a corporate store so this review is based on that. The expectations are way too high for the pay-wages are not competitive at all. Although I did meet a lot of great people and learned a lot it really wasn’t that great of a job.

Points positifs

Discounts

Points négatifs

Work overload for low pay

Great Part-Time Job

Good work environment. Everyone got along and supported each other. Busy enough that the day goes by but not overwhelmingly busy. Scheduling was very flexible and management was very supportive.

Points positifs

Good work environment

genuinely SO terrible .. stay away!!

Worst management i've ever had, worst group of higher ups i've ever seen. They don't care about you. They don't follow labour laws. They surely don't care about your safety or how you are treated. Definitely not worth minimum wage . Don't work here. You'll thank me later

Points positifs

Cute Animals come to visit

Points négatifs

horrible management, unfair pay, poor treatment

Don't work here unless you want to be an empty void of yourself

Terrible job. Management expects your entire life to be 100% petvalu. If you do grow in the company, you end up doing more work than you're paid for. Awful turnover rates. Managers are so rude and act better than everyone, even though they barely graduated high school. Tons of gossip, belittling, and brown nosing. You're going to be miserable and mistreated greatly. Run, run fast and run far.

Points positifs

discount, dogs, virtual learning

Points négatifs

scattered hours, rude, false info given

Fantastic, but…

It’s an amazing place to work, but don’t expect much by ways of raises. Hours can be stingy most weeks, but if it’s your first job it’s a great place to socialize and get comfortable with retail life

Points positifs

Flexible hours

Points négatifs

Short/long shifts, few raises

Not worth your time

was so excited to start working at Bosley's but the work-life balance is way off. management only cares about getting enough hours for the store, you will work like a dog literally even if you ask for fewer hours. Most of the coworkers were nice but anyone higher up was super mean and lots of gossip occurred in the workplace.

Points positifs

dog

Points négatifs

long hours

awful managers and toxic workplace

This is a terrible company to work for. The higher ups do not care about the wellbeing of their employees and do not hire good managers. I was forced to quit my position because they hired a TOXIC manager who was out to ruin the store's atmosphere. He would insult people and cut the hours of people that he disliked. The workplace became extremely toxic and many people felt the same way. Like its a minimum wage pet store job -- was not worth the emotional stress

Points négatifs

boring, bad pay

Easy first job, fun with animals, bad management.

The job it's self is really easy to get the hang of. You get to see lots of animals and meet new people. Every petvalu I have worked at has terrible management. None of the managers I have had good leadership skills.

Points positifs

Free product knowledge

Points négatifs

Bad management

Great coworkers, awful pay.

I loved my coworkers and most of my customers. The pay was awful for how much they wanted you to do especiallyby yourself. Worked most shifts by myself and had to clean, stock shelves, help customers, rotate stock, watch our store aninals and more for only minimum wage. I worked there a year and a half and took home less than 10 grand so I had to work 2 other jobs. And upper management does not care about you.

Points positifs

Great girls to work with, amazing customers

Points négatifs

Long hours, poor pay, over worked, upper management sucks

Not worth all the responsibilities for how little you are paid. Management a mess.

LOTS of heavy lifting. Catty coworkers and hypocrisy from both employees and management. Not only physically exhausting, but mentally as well. It's nice to see peoples pets when they bring them in but it really does not level out.

Points positifs

Cute pets brought in, discounts on pet food and supplies

Points négatifs

Too many tasks and not enough staff to do them, management doesn't care or offer solutions

worst management I’ve literally ever dealt with

At the store I was working at the management was segregated with the senior staff versus the younger staff. The mentality of the management is to “play a game until you win and beat everybody else”The wage is not worth the physical labour they put you through every day. No paid training and no respect They would tell sales associates to do their part of the job when the management wouldn’t do theirs

Points positifs

Literally no pros other than meeting other coworkers

Points négatifs

Bad management, poor hours, poor customer service, always dirty, unorganized behind the scenes

Bullying management and lying owner caused me to have no form of income for over a year.

No interest in anyone with disabilities. Rather than help they scoff at personal problems. Bottom line is their only interest. Toxic and mean environment. If someone isn’t crying they’re not doing their job.

Points positifs

None

Points négatifs

Bullying

Terrible Management

I worked at PetValu for almost three years. I absolutely loved the job and getting to know the customers. However, management was terrible. After constant complaints and nothing ever getting resolved.. I ended up having to leave because of the harassment from the manager. No one in the company cared that this was taking place.

Great management, relaxed place to work

Management is super understanding. Great work/life balance. People there are great to work with. You have your slow times, and you have your busy times. Pretty relaxed otherwise.

It's too much work for little pay. You are expected to do everything that a manager does with minimum wage. You have to sweep floors, then mop, be a cashier, sales associate, customer services, order stuff for people, a lot of facing, shipment.. not worth the little pennies they give you in return.

Difficult Workplace

I have worked at Pet Valu for around two years, during those two years I had some positive experiences with the job but I unfortunately had more negatives. The company does not offer enough hours for the stores to cover all the hours properly. Most times you would work most of a shift alone with no one else in the store - you would be stretched beyond measures to help customers within a timely matter, give the best customer service and keep the store looking presentable. The worst is when you're having to close the store alone while especially after someone leaves at 5pm and you're alone until 9pm trying to help customers, clean, order, face the store, dog washes, laundry, overstock, cash customers out, sweep/mop, etc. Management is not fair, there is definitely favourites presented. The store manager, district manager, and company itself let me down when I was personally attacked/harassed by a fellow co-worker and I brought it to their attention and NOTHING was done. The co-worker got no discipline, no suspension, NOTHING rather I the victim had to work at another location for a month or so to be separated from my co-worker who harassed me. I am very disappointed and disgusted at how this situation was dealt with. I found that this workplace had a lot of workers who were bullies, played mind games and did not care about their workers properly. You're told one thing and another thing happens. There is no respect or appreciation from this company/workplace. You're expected to go over and beyond, yet the company doesn't have your best interests in hand nor even protect you when - 

Points positifs

interacting with customers & their pets

Points négatifs

long hours, work most of shift alone, closing alone, stressful, toxic workplace, toxic co-workers, no guarantees, constant whispering behind your back, no respect, only one break - 30 mins only

No support

Supports and enables childish behavior at the expense of better employees. Terrible pay for store expectations in presentation and customer service and knowledge.

Terrible owner/manager (Laird & Esander/ Donlands & Danforth)

Worked at both locations and the owner at Laird treats you, customers, etc. like garbage, always fighting (even with her husband in front of everyone including customers), disrespectful, racist, crazy. If you like yourself stay far far away from this place.

Great place

Great place to work at, great training but not much time to learn the material. Not much advancements, competitive week to week. Very safe place and fun place to work.
