Started out a dollar above minimum wage, was rejected a raise after minimum wage caught up to my wage. Had to deal with some workplace bullying that wasn't handled properly. The job itself is fun and great, loved working in a pet store. There is no growth in the company and there isn't stable hours.
The owner and regional managers are impossible to get a hold of when you need them. Store managers and supervisors are hit and miss. Had a great store manager who held the whole place together. Our store trained some managers for other stores that I was amazed didnt get fired for their conduct. Most of the supervisors are great, but some abuse their power.
The management is awful. The staff used to be cohesive, but management changes has made the store near unworkable. Unreceptive you’re employee complaints, show little regard for employee interests and comfort. Very fast paced but don’t pay enough for it. Staff who have been there for years make a pittance above minimum wage. Used to be a great place to work, has nosedived.
