Toxic, overwhelming, draining, money motivated.
Very toxic environment, salary based on how close you are to JVP, qualifications do not make a difference. Overworked and undervalued. Staff discount of 20% given to most JVP’s friends and family - no extra benefits. All treatment charged as full price (-20%). Days overbooked so usually no full lunch. JVP tells you what you want to hear rather than the truth, not trustworthy at all. A lot of issues brought up get swept under the carpet by the management as well as head office. Overall feels like head office is there for the employer than than the employee. Personal issues discussed with other team members. Constant messages, emails etc sent by JVP outside of working hours. How you get treated depends on your relationship with JVP. Mistakes get pointed out on group chats rather than face to face and you are threatened someone will have to lose their job as you are costing practice money. Letters of concern being thrown left right and centre so usual disciplinary steps can be skipped. On interview told it’s a “family” environment but no care is given to your mental or physical well-being. As long as money is made the JVP is happy. Many occasions the employer doesn’t back the employees, also overuses her power to make clients feel she is the vet and goes against what you say even though has no clinical qualifications.
Best thing is cuddles with the pets.
Minimum wage and long hours, the only thing that made it worth it was the interaction with the animals. Working a weekend and just being you on reception is ridiculous for the customers and the staff. Run as cheaply as possible.
Veterinary Care Assistant in Croydon, Greater London
Pay low, judgmental manager, long hours
Management are judgemental and don't give you the support you need. You never get any appreciation or positive feedback you only ever get told what you are doing wrong. There are issues in the team including bullying. It's not a nice place to work. Pay is terrible, hours are long. Communication is terrible.

Toxic environment, overworked miserable staff and backstabbing culture
This company is dependant on your individual JVP, personally I found there to be a heavy blame culture on a head office that has no say in order to treat staff poorly. The wages for staff tends to be based on who is closest to the management rather than experience and skill. Hours are set and great on paper however overtime is essential to keep up with the heavy workload, out of hours is covered elsewhere during the week meaning you get to relax in the evenings if you manage to leave on time however, social media platforms mean people will contact you at all hours making it difficult to physically switch off Progression is mixed as educational advancement in certificates and training is encouraged however it will do very little for your position on practice or salary
