The Pet Firm
Merchandiser (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZJune 9, 2014
Pros: generous hourly rate
Cons: not enough stores.
The Human Resources Director called me and offered me the job in May, 2014. Unfortunately, due to the rural area, I am only assigned to Fulton, KY Walmart. It is just a monthly job. The company is generous in the fact that they pay me the full hour and I am told the job will take no more than 5 minutes, generally. I complete the job when I am in the store anyway.

RUN! Dont walk away from this company
DEMO REP (Current Employee), CUYAHOGA FALLS OH, WOOSTER, OHApril 9, 2014
Pros: working with animals
Cons: everything- no hours, negative, no promotions, no commissions but demand sales
I have worked at a demo rep with this company for 3 years now.
AND it was great at first. BUT, now due to a lack of contracts they have no demos to send us to. SO they really demand you to SELL while doing what is supposed to be a fun little job.

THE PET FIRM will make you aware of the fact that you are disposable to them, and that they want someone who is"energetic" and "excited" to work for them. Like a high school student. I have had extremely negative communication with management since January. My manager is very sarcastic and belittling to me. Since I am a professional with a degree, I wont put up with such nonsense. I have been accused of being dishonest about my numbers. They are very negative and never give any positive feedback at all for the many things I did for them. The only thing they care about is the bottom line.

The hourly rate is okay, but due to the lack of hours because they are so dead now. It is not worth the hassle.

THEY will call the stores and speak to managers and embarrass you.

THEY will accuse you leaving demos early and/or not acting professional. This is not a company I would ever recommend to anyone.

Everyone that I have talked to is quitting.

Being a Brand Ambassador is exciting, if you like to engage with people. People LOVE their animals. Nutrition is important to the buyers and their animals. With that being said, if you are passionate about product awareness and you love animals. This company is great to work for.

Area Merchandising Rep and Product Demonstrator (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZApril 4, 2012
This is a great company to work for if you only want to work a few hours a month to supplement your income however if you need more than that I would not suggest The Pet Firm.
