clean professional establishment
loved the people I worked with and the animals. Hardest part was dealing with families that had to put their animal down :(

Can be fun but demoralizing, undervalued and under appreciated
There are times when this place can be fun. But it's greatly overshadowed by the fact that everyone is overworked, VERY underpaid and VERY under appreciated by the owner and manager. Nothing the staff does is ever good enough for either of them and staff ALWAYS get the brunt of the manager's bad day. The owner will also make excuses if something goes wrong during surgery and not be forward about the causes to clients, then make other staff tell the clients about it. He and the manager also give laughable raises ($0.50 per raise) then make excuses as to why they cannot give anything reasonable no matter how long you've worked there. Staff are also expected to work overtime when asked-for very little appreciation, much like when they are on regular scheduling. They have ZERO consideration for mental health, but also talk bad about you to the other staff if taking a physical or mental health break. Nothing is kept in private; the whole clinic will know if there's any issues with the manager whether personal or professional. It doesn't help that clients will verbally abuse the staff and the management and owner seem to not have as much concern as they should. There is also NO consideration for when you're snowed in and have tried EVERYTHING to get there and can't, or when you're sick and have to call in-they get mad for lack of work ethic and complain about being short-staffed.

Poorly Managed Veterinary Clinic
Basically operates like a chop shop—constantly over-booking surgeries cheap for minimum care. Has illegal expectations of staff to take part in handling drugs and assisting during surgeries without proper training or qualifications. Vets are overworked and management was absent.

First job
With this being my first job in the veterinary industry i have nothing but positive things to say. This definitely isn't an easy job or industry to work in but it is always very rewarding. This was one of my favorite places to work at because of the great team i was surrounded with and i got to play with a lot of puppies. I definitely would recommend working here!

Terrible - Avoid at all costs
I was hired on as a tech assistant/receptionist, and after 8 hours, I left crying and knew I would never be back. The girls are very two faced with a superiority complex, and the doctors never talk or address you often. The hiring manager left me to my own devices after the first hour or so, so I was left scrambling trying to follow the other girls around. There were no introductions, and no tour or the establishment, basically just left to figure things out on your own time. It’s a terribly run clinic, and I’ve heard secondhand from many people that they’re just in it for the money. Proper protocols are not followed (tech assistants are made to do tech jobs) and nobody seems happy to be working there. In only a short amount of time, I witnessed racism towards a patron, someone yelling at a scared puppy who had just woken from surgery, eye rolls and complaints over customer questions, and fake/non cancelled appointments so the front end girls could have more time to sit around. 100% recommend staying away from this place if you have any sense of morals.
