Store Colleague in Warrington, Riverside
Fun place to work with customers and colleague’s
I worked at the Riverside Retail Park, Warrington branch for just seven months Aug 2020 to March 2021, and I have to say, it was one of the best places to work with management and colleagues always having your back. So different to the other jobs that I have done. The whole team are very professional and I made a few of great friends there, (they know who they are).I loved the whole environment and was really sad to leave but the draw of a much greater salary took me away. Whatever I requested from the managers, I got and they helped me no end as it was my first experience in retail. I would always consider going back if there were more hours available and more responsibilities.
This is an excellent job to have, I have worked at other companies and they are nothing compared to pets at home, they actually make you feel wanted and that you have a purpose and that you are an actual human being who deserve the good things best decision I ever made.
Assistant Manager in Harlow
No good anymore
Used to be an amazing company to work for, actually used to care about the animals and the customers! But now just after every little penny they can get! Treat managers and colleagues like dirt, expect you to work extra hours for free if management! Higher up managers couldn’t care for the colleagues at all, if were making them more money than the other stores, their happy! Care for the animals is almost non existent now, literally only cleaning out the animals fully every 3 days, used to be everyday, this was to save the company money and to be able to have all colleagues on shop floor getting money out of the customers!

Best place I ever worked
Most fun and enjoyable place to work, they don’t really put pets first though. Shove them in tiny cage and treat them as products. Can sometimes be bitchiness and bullying. But the job itself is fun.

Work like a donkey and get treated like one.
Night shifts are the worst as we have to do all the pickings because the day shift does bare minimum. The company uses you like a servant. Whenever they are not busy or ahead of pickings they will send you home two hours earlier than you rostered for. You loose money on that and your target too. But when they’re busy they force you to flex up and stay two hours post shift. All of this happens whilst you’re working or just arrived to work. Nothing is done in advance so you can prepare yourself. The management is a complete joke, no form of professionalism whatsoever. For a big company like that it is ludicrous to operate in such a manner.
