Family friendly atmosphere, great staff to work with.
Cashier (Current Employee) – Grande Prairie, AB – 2 May 2017
When beginning my employment at Petland Grande Prairie, management was in disarray. We lost both our manager and assistant manager at the same time, so management was left to four supervisors. Four months into the job, a new manager was found and things began to run smoothly, making Petland and even better work environment.
The staff at Petland is extremely pleasant. The whole crew works together well with very little drama between members. This created a family between us, and created a safe environment for coworkers to thrive.
A typical day includes one-on-one experiences with many different kinds of customers, as well as animals, which was the best part of working for Petland. After joining the many college-style courses offered by the company, the knowledge and skills we acquired became extremely useful in dealing with any questions asked by our clients.
The only downside to working for this great company was a lack of hours. With many part-time employees, hours were not guaranteed to the staff.
Friendly staff, great customers, and lots of one-on-one time with the animals. Great learning experience.
