My current store has really improved recently thanks to the extra funding and attention from Area and Regional Managers, I'd like to think all stores get the same treatment.

    Pros

    Every day is different. A happy environment where your colleagues are friends and you are taught so much about products and encouraged to spend time talking to the customers and sharing helpful advice.

    Cons

    Retail is a tough business to work in with late nights and weekends, bank holidays and 365 days a year animal care but it goes with the job. Training is intense but knowledge is power and the more we learn the more we can help.

    Advice to Management

    Stay true to our values as they mean so much to all of us.


  2. "Enjoyable and pleasant"
