A positive company AND you play with puppies!

It’s rare to find a company that creates a great product that helps animals and that you can believe in. You receive lots of support and ongoing education so you always feel confident speaking to pet parents and knowing that you are giving their pets the very best help. Best of all is getting to play with puppies when they visit !

Pros

Regular schedule, fairly autonomous

Cons

No pay increase or job advancement

Amazing

Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. I have learned so much about diets for animals and talking to people and connecting with them. I get to learn about others lives and help make their lives just a little bit easier.

Amazing, supportive company, not pressured

Blue Buffalo was a great company to work for and I learned a lot from the job. Not much advancement, little chaotic when I was originally hired due to management moving around. I was payed hourly so there was no pressure for sales, best part was the working environment. Solving peoples issues with their pets diet was my favorite part; however, I dealt with issues/non-professionalism from OTHER companies while working, no fault of blue buffalo of course, they handled everything perfectly.

Pros

Very flexible weekends shifts

Cons

No advancement

new to the job but exceptionally happy

I'm brand new to the job (couple of months in) but I am very happy with this placement. The company is incredibly ethical and management is wonderful and cares about their employees to the point where they pay way more than expected and talk to employees about how things are going in a group chat and keep things professional but friendly. plus I get to pet dogs all day so that's a bonus

Pros

dog petting, good pay, ethical

Cons

haven't found one yet

Fun p/t job if you LOVE animals and can deal with ZERO management support

I love animals and I love what I do. In saying that, this is not a job for people new to working and need a lot of direction. Management is never available and unless THEY need something do not return any messages. However, the flip side is that they do have your back when issues arise although its after the fact. Its nice to know that despite there being almost no way to contact your manager that they have your back should something go wrong. That mitigates some of the issues mentioned first. Otherwise. If you love animals and people and love educating and know your stuff - I mean really know your stuff - it's a wonderful p/t job. Unfortunately, not much room for advancement but they do have some nice perks. It would be a very hard job to part with in the end.

Exceptional Employment

If you get the opportunity to be part of the Blue herd, I highly recommend it! The people are amazing, the job is fulfilling, and the sense of honest care and attention for fur babies everywhere is real. I love being a member of the herd, and even if I won the lottery and didn't need the job I would still enthusiastically stick around. Training methods could use some improvement, but the company provides and earnestly sets their herd up for success!!

Pros

Flexible part time hours, great management, genuine love for animals!

Cons

No signficant cons.

Fun and Amazing Job

Once I arrived at work, I would begin cleaning up mu area and then start helping customers with their needs. I learned that many people can be interested in trying new products, all you have to do is fill them with knowledge of who your brand really is. My co-workers were fun to work with and others not so much, but as a worker I was always respectful. The hardest part of my Job was when the store was empty, I got really bored not having anything to do. The most enjoyable part of my job was, when I spoke to the customers and I learned so much about them, than just what type dog food they were looking for.

Pros

Benefits with Dog Food
