Stay away from VCA
Receptionist, Tech Assistant (Ancien employé) –  Canada28 mai 2019
I had been employed with VCA for 9 months. 3 months in, we lost our manager who went on stress leave for 2 months, as she was not able to assist us employees with ongoing issues at the clinic. There was no effort made to replace her, even temporarily, so we went without a manager for 6 months. A lack of leadership really has an effect on its employees, as when there are issues that come up that need dealing with, they need to be resolved. Since I had been employed there, 1 colleague of mine was fired on month 7 without reason, after being hired the same time as me, 1 doctor had quit, as well as 3 technicians, 2 other receptionists and 2 more technician assistants. The regional manager stepped in to attempt to take the place of the manager we had been missing and began saying that things would get better, started trying to arrange daily “huddles” and try and fix parts that didn’t need fixing, while also disagreeing with the fact that we were understaffed. Also didn’t acknowledge the fact that I told her I felt unsafe without security cameras in our building, as we were scammed twice within 1 week. I had to move on, as I felt extremely overworked, and did not feel appreciated for everything I had done for this clinic, especially being “cross trained” as both a receptionist and tech assistant. There was so much positivity talk that all just ended in empty promises. There was too much “yes. I understand, that must be frustrating”, with nothing actually being done about anything. Very unhealthy work environment, and extremely poor pay. I would not recommend VCA to anyone, and if  plus... I had my own pet I would not use this company.  moins

Poor management, lack of communication.
Internship (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB8 avril 2019
Wasted a couple of weeks working at Western. I do not recommend working in this place.
- I found no compassion for owners suffering the loss of their pets.
- No respect for pet's remains.
- No organization amongst coworkers, and complete absence of management that never knew what was going on with her own team.
- Complete lack of communication.

During my time working there i was told to do the opposite of what was expected, and then reported to the manager as I was not following directions.

A valuable tip, keep in mind all VCA hospitals putting ads every week, this is a huge red flag, don't apply to those places even if the hospital seems to be "amazing".

Save your time and your passion for the profession you chose amd look for places not affiliated with VCA, small clinics will give value for the time you spent in class and the love and dedication you put in your work.

Disappointing workplace culture
Veterinary Technician (Ancien employé) –  Edmonton, AB18 mars 2019
Our clinic was bought last year by VCA and the quality of our practice has taken a huge nosedive. Management is now a complete joke with how often it flip-flops on policies, making snap decisions without gathering information on how it would affect workflow, and refuses to listen when concerns are brought up.
Any sense of individuality as a worker having their own important role in the workplace has vanished; VCA will treat you as disposable.
