Great first job, but...

Avis en vedette

L'avis le plus utile, sélectionné par Indeed
Petland is a great first job, whether you're a student or someone looking for part time work. However, part time hours are all you will be given unless you're a manager, or you pick up extra shifts/come in on your days off. There are a lot of opportunities to enhance your knowledge on animal care through online training and classes which I definitely recommend taking the time to do during your employment—it'll make helping guests and navigating your way through the store much easier. The animal care part of the job can be overwhelming, so be prepared to put in some elbow grease. Despite all of your hard work, don't expect a raise, even after years of dedication to the company.

Points positifs

Working with animals, lots to learn

Points négatifs

No raises, not enough hours

Poor Management

Was rudely excused due to being tested with Covid and not having results back fast enough to my managers liking. Manager is extremely unprofessional and hung up the phone on me. Petland gave me nothing but grief. Work there for 3 years and expect to be still be payed minimum wage. Honestly, the animals are fun. The management is bad, always has been. They act like children.

Points positifs

Nothing

Points négatifs

very fun and engaging workplace

petland is a great first job- you learn so much about animal care. The managers are very inclusive and nice. Opening shifts- the managers WILL expect you to be on the floor a lot during the day, fronting and facing or helping guests, so that makes it a little harder to complete all 2 pages of the morning tasks in such little time, but Overall if you are interested in animal care and want to have an engaging and interactive job working at petland may be the choice for you!

Points positifs

nice people, animal care, paid animal care classes and flexible hours.

If you have any respect for animals, don't work here

Or any respect for yourself for that matter. If you love animals you'll hate the conditions they're made to live in. If you do work here then you'll learn to become apathetic pretty quickly.

Hard work, good management

There's a lot that goes into working here between the training and the sales-driven work culture but honestly if you're going into the animal care field or you're a really big animal lover it's worth working here. The coworkers aren't burnt out over the workload and the management is really understanding. I could have happily continued working here.

Fun workplace!

My very first job was at Petland, and it couldn't have been a better experience. It felt like my second home, the staff makes you feel like family, and I love being around animals. I loved it there, I would absolutely go back in a heartbeat.

Points positifs

You get to hangout with animals all day!

Points négatifs

High pressure sales

Sales come before everything else. Cleaning and animal care is often neglected to keep staff on the sales floor pushing for additional sales. If you don’t meet sales targets your hours will be cut.

Points positifs

Animals are fantastic

Points négatifs

Management are bullies

Horrible Management, Outdated sales tactics

-Management was easy to over assign tasks to you then get mad if you didn't finish them with the volume of customers coming in needing to stop and help them with their needs -Management was toxic. Never giving credit to hard workers but blaming them for the smallest misstep. Over barring co-worker with religious beliefs would insert them into every conversation and management wouldn't do a thing about it because she was there favorite -Erratic hours -Great Co-workers

Very social, relaxed workplace. Friendly coworkers and enjoyable tasks.

Spending my short weeks there at Petland, it was very nice. I got to know the Petland coworkers very well and honestly felt welcomed. The customers were mostly there to check out the pets, so I didn't have to do much directing and such.

Points positifs

Easy layout of the facility, friendly coworkers.

Points négatifs

Other students taking up volunteer hours

Highschool politics

If you're a mature person you shouldn't waste your time working here. The amount of drama and highschool politics is ridiculous. Upper management don't really care and will flat out lie to you.

Not a good place to work

Employees are treated very unfairly with favouritism and when a concern comes up, it will be handled based on the managements personal feelings and relationships with the said employee. Yes the animal care is knowledgeable and fun, but the general environment and staff make the place a rather depressing and stressful place to work. It’s impossible to get a raise here, or even a promotion unless again, you’re a favourite of the manager.

Points positifs

Knowledgeable animal care

Points négatifs

Staff and environment

All sales

sales quotas were ridiculous when I worked there. $180 to 4 customers per hour. If you didnt meet or exceed your sales quota for 3 consecutive months, you were automatically terminated. Due to my sales being low at the time, they scheduled me 2-5pm on Sundays and expected top sales, even though people just wanted to come in and play with the animals at that time. You would NOT get the sale if a customer didn't specify your name at the till, OR you physically walked up with them and waited to get the sale, causing you to lose opportunities to get more sales.

Points positifs

Cute animals

Points négatifs

Quotas

Great intentions, poorly organized.

Petland was an absolute blast and it equipped me with a bunch of skills and abilities I didn’t have before starting. The people you’ll find In store at Petland are most often bubbly and easy to talk to, but head office folks will give you the cold shoulder. On the store level, management tries their best to create a fun and positive environment but I find that the way head office does things makes it difficult. Store managers are overworked and burning out and that attitude bleeds into the staff. FAR too much responsibility is handed to young people with minimal training in terms of specialized animal care (caring for sick/injured animals, operating the entire animal department on ones own, facilitating adoptions etc...) Head office has HIGH expectations and will assign M A S S I V E workloads to be completed whilst keeping sales above par. It is easy to become overwhelmed. As a department head, I was disappointed to have never been given formal training designed for my position over the almost year I was employed. Expect this to be a job where you are navigating the choppy seas on your own. I find much of the stores systems in terms of training, file keeping, pricing, and merchandising to be outdated and messy at best. Animal care on the whole, is good but many animals are sold in enclosures that have been proven to be far to small to facilitate happy and normal living, mostly the hamsters, birds, and other rodents. Sales seem to come first with Petland. Don’t get me wrong, I am grateful for the opportunities provided, but I can now see why staff turnover is so astronomically - 

Points positifs

Access to endless information on animals, fun coworkers, interaction with animals

Points négatifs

Long hours, minimal assistance, huge responsibility, bad head office

Fun, but stressful

I love my job as a PC, but moving up is impossible and it's a very fast paced environment. Seniority seems to dictate most things, and you could be incredibly experienced by unless you have 3 years of Petland experience, you're gonna have a hard time getting your word across. My location had wonderful store managers, however petland is usually staffed by teenagers and college kids, so department managers tend to be young and dont really know how to manage

Points positifs

Fun environment, very interesting, once you establish yourself youre guaranteed good enough hours

Points négatifs

Sales based store (no commison but its still very competitive), bad training, its either you get it or you dont, and if you dont youre out

Toxic environment with no regulation on how managers treat their employees. Horribly trained supervisors and managers Bad pay, not worth it.

I worked at Petland for over a year back in 2018. In that time the supervisor that was grooming me to be a small animals manager was moved to another store and replaced with the worst piece of faeces in the whole world. And I am not exaggerating. The store had a good environment and most of the employees actually enjoyed coming to work because everyone vibbed well. But then the whole supervisor switch happened and everything just went into the garbage. She was like a sleeping volcano and was not to be trusted. She talked behind backs, lied to your face, belittled you and was just all around a huge defecation storm. And in turn, the willingness and working energy of the store also went down hill because she's a relic that maybe had been marinated in fecal matter a few to many times and really did not know how to manage. She was a walking cloud of toxic fumes. Don't apply to work for petland. It's an entry level job full of excrement (Both literally and figuratively). The company really doesn't understand animal care or even the five freedoms. If you aren't 15 and still living with your parents, don't do it. The amount you make and the hours they give you is not life sustaining. They hire you on as part time but give you full time hours and expect you to live by a chaotic schedule of never knowing when you work without taking pictures of the paper print out three weeks in advance.And sometimes they switch up your days without telling you and if you don't look at the schedule every day just incase someone changed your hours- you're basically screwed and get written up or "Coached". - 

Points positifs

Sometimes you get snacks, animals, social, learning experience, entry level job

Points négatifs

Management, hours, pay, training, Hr, treatment of animals

Volunteer Work

I only worked as a volunteer. My experience with the staff was very positive. I think that Petland is good place to work. I didn't appreciate being handed all of the jobs the paid staff didn't want to do, but I understand why it worked that way.

Points positifs

Work with animals

Points négatifs

Handled all of the odd jobs that paid staff didn't want to do.
