    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital

    Pros

    -Discounts on pet care and free wellness plans
    -discount at petsmart
    -decent dental/vision insurance and 401k

    Cons

    -Health insurance is as bad as it can get with very high deductible
    -you can only bring your dog in on your day off cuz if you bring him in the day your working you have to pay for hospitalization
    -Constantly understaffed
    -care more about profit than pet welfare
    -they say that they don't euthanaize unless it is for something untreatable but doctors feel that their jobs are threatened if they dont make enough money so they end up doing it anyway
    PDPs are a joke
    -No room for advancement. I try to become office manager for a year and they hire someone from outside who doesnt know anything about Banfield
    -They wont fire anyone. This girl was a no show three times and she still works here. and she cals off all the time

    I have been working at Banfield Pet Hospital

    Pros

    Awesome staff....great group to work with
    The pet nurses are competent and caring
    The service coordinators are very friendly

    Cons

    Long unpredicatable hours....don't pay attention to your schedule because you rarely get off on your scheduled time
    I have worked 10 plus hour days without lunch or breaks
    Wellness Plans are sold to sick pets (a dog in renal failure/seizuring was put on a OWP and died the next day)
    No matter how hard you work, how many pets you take care of ......its not good enough, you need to see more
    Overbook appointments....causes terrible stress on staff and long wait times for the pet owner
    Not convinced that all lab work is reviewed by the veterinarian
    Clinic is dirty! I haven't seen the surgery room wiped down and sanitized since I have been there (3 months)
    No time given at work to complete required computer training......do it at home.
    Open 7 days a week to include holidays! Forget family time!
    The veterinarians want different things....vaccinations....Heartworm preventative....etc.....you do one for this veterinarian and the other one yells at you wanting to know why you did it that way!
    No structure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Concentrate on quality care instead of the numbers....if you did the numbers would all fall into place!
    Stress to the veterinarians that Wellness Plans are for healthy pets only!
    Give your pet nurses and CSC's some holidays off and maybe even consider closing on Sunday.....you can make the numbers up on another day!
    My family and friends asked about bringing their pets to Banfield......I told them no don't do it!
