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.
