Customer Service Assistant in Southampton, Hampshire
on 15 May 2022
Easy money, miserable job.
Was a very easy company to advance into management, in less than a year I was being put onto courses to be an assistant manager. Pay was great, but KPI's make work miserable, there constantly being pushed on you if your not achieving and it means that good customer service gets pushed aside to force KPI's on customers.

Enjoyable
Temporary contract which isn’t too obvious on description & the pay should be higher in my opinion. I enjoy my job though, I feel apart of the team like my manager & feel supported & enjoy working from home & like the company in itself.
Store Manager in Bedfordshire

Classic Retail experience
You get what you expect with working for pets at home, as you would with any retailer, can be some long hours and the usual rude customers but day to day is generally smooth. The main sell over other retail work is the animals, caring for them and educating the public is rewarding as well as all the charity work they do. During COVID lockdown company was very supportive, but unfortunately the job isn't very satisfying and can get repetitive.
Dog Groomer in Sheffield, South Yorkshire

Stressful, not supportive, depressing
Day to day is very stressful. Your are expected to groom back to back as well as answer the phone, book dogs in and out, clean, paperwork, diary keeping, hit targets, sell add ons.. all at the same time. You will groom right up until closing and the salon is expected to be spotless, so often you will leave late and not get paid for it. You are not given any support to progress within the company unless you are the managers best friend. The atmosphere is tense all the time in the salon and the shop floor as nobody is happy or motivated to work because store management and higher area management have sucked the life out of you. In our salon we had no salon manager for 3 years and was never thanked for keeping the salon afloat and always expected to do things which were not in our job role, with NO support from management. Only positive are the people i worked with at my level.

Fine.
Almost no work life balance as the Rotas contain zero consistency. Often made to compete against each other to hit the targets. Typical good and bad like every workplace. Can be very cliquey.
